Samsung has insisted that its Exynos 990 is as good as Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 chip. This, after a report came out claiming the company’s mobile-chip division got humiliated when Samsung decided to release the Snapdragon variant of the Galaxy S20 series in Korea.

The result of a recent gaming test pitting the Exynos 990-powered Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus against Xiaomi‘s Redmi Note 8 Pro midranger with MediaTek Helio G90T doesn’t help the manufacturer’s case. Especially since the latter is way cheaper than the S20 Plus. In the Philippines, its current starting price is P11,490 (around $227). The Galaxy flagship, on the other hand, costs P55,990 ($1,108). Stark difference.

In a video uploaded by YouTuber Chong Liu, where he played PUBG Mobile for 30 minutes on both smartphones, you’ll notice that the frame rate on the Redmi Note 8 Pro experienced a stable 60fps frame rate all throughout the game.

And on the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus? The frame rate dropped to as low as 40fps. In fact, you’ll see it started to throttle at the 10-minute mark; from 60fps, it went to 50fps. Watch the video below, and see it for yourself.

Many in the tech community have long complained about Exynos chips’ aggressive throttling. This video just gives them another ammunition to prove their case.

In case you didn’t know, Samsung always releases two versions of its flagship smartphones. One relies on a Snapdragon processor while the other is powered by an Exynos SoC. Us here in the Philippines get the latter.
