Yes, I am always at constant 60 FPS while exploring and only drops to 40 FPS when in a big fights when there are 5 or 6 enemies on the screen.
Now with the .210 and .226 update my fps is all over the place dropping to 20 FPS even while exploring and mostly getting 45 to 50 FPS and its gets worse during a fight.
My CPU would clock at 2.84GHz below 42C and never dropped below 2.38GHz above 42C in .86 firmware with X-Mode+ (Aeroactive Cooler Attached) if I remember correctly.
X mode On — 1.31ghz
Game tuning Lvl2 —1.42ghz
With your Scenario profile — 2.04-2.38ghz (screenshot)
Thank you 😊 (frm ---us95rb)
I don't like using AeroActiveCooler. I keep a mini Usb fan behind the phone to keep system temp below 40°C.
Hope it won't fry the cpu/motherboard. 🥺.
Few updates before,Cpu speed was locked at 2.27 on GT Lv2.
With your custom settings its locked to 2.04-2.27ghz and doesn't fall below it. Fluctuates between 2.04 - 2.15 - 2.38 - 2.84
Also, This video explains very well: https://youtu.be/b8L_8usMa9Y ; excellent performance with advanced custom settings 👍
May i know @ARP_ASUS @Gustav@Gustav_ASUS @Gustav_ASUS why your team did this deliberately? Most of the rog 5 owner's Mainboard died with normal daily use.
The CPU clocked down to 2.38 Ghz after 45 C and stayed at that, hitting max temp at 52 C
Under 45 C CPU was hitting full 2.8Ghz under load.
Yep that's how it should be running the game..😔
But on the latest firmware look at that cpu clock👁️👄👁️
How I wish I can go back to that old firmware 😖 but nope asus I'ma force you to update your phone firmware.. to the latest firmware no matter how buggy it is... and yes you can manually update and postponed it... for one week only sadly ....
Look at how hard it's throttling on the .266 update.
I have tested this with X-Mode+ ON (Aeroactive Cooler Attached)
1.79GHz (1785 MHz) at 32C
1.42GHz (1420 MHz) at 37C
1.08GHz (1075 MHz) at 40C
That is some serious downclock, holy mother of god.
How does it affect the FPS?
I get 50-60 FPS with Aero active cooler.
I have already seen your videos and it looks like you don't know what you are talking about.
Your FPS is dropping as low as 30 FPS and it's all over the place.
And no, Advanced Mode, X-Mode, Dynamic, Game Tuning Level 3 and Hardcore Tuning are all clocking at the same speed. There is no increase in performance or CPU clock speed when you activate them.
The only workaround was Advanced Hardcore Tuning but with the latest update .226 they started downgrading the performance even worse. It starts thermal throttling at 42C and downclock the CPU to 1.42GHz when before I have no issues playing over 55C and still get the same performance.
Since 55C is considered extremely hot I decided to get a peltier cooler and my temps never exceeded 48C even when play for 2 or 3 hours with Max settings but now they have made the phone useless as the phone starts thermal throttling at 42C so coolers are useless to use with this phone now. You'll never get the same performance like it use to.
It's really bad, there is so much lag and freezes now. I get around 30 - 40 FPS while exploring and 15 to 30 FPS in big fights.
When previously, I get constant 60 FPS while exploring with random dips to 56 or 57 FPS and 40 FPS in a big fight.
This is a post from rog 3 section, apparently rog 5 isn't the only one suffering
@Sarkiri take a look
See it also rog5 Oct post 2021 .mod and dev useless still now
A gaming phone that failed to do 1 thing that's really good at what a joke of a phone and a scam by Asus.
I had been complaining about the downclocking issue since a month before the .226 update, they said they are working on this issue and they had all the time to fix this issue unless they are going this deliberately. The phone is now downclocking even worse than .210 update.
And I am really mad that I can't play the game that I bought this phone for properly.
This issue is affecting even the A12 beta. Which explains they are doing this deliberately.
Still they Says everytime your phone passed all tests .I play the game in service center only the problem not resolved yet till day.we all are join together to solve this problem and give a counter low to Asus
I found the workaround about this clusterfu*k.
So when you open genshin or any game with maxed out hardcore tuning. And then you saw your cpu stucked at lower clockspeed. Just lockscreen your phone and unlock again. I don't know if it's gonna work for ya'll but i tested with rog 3 and 5 and it seems worked.
I have something to say for my lovely asus developer about this mess..
Just resign if you can't handle this crap.
PS: this workaround will ineffective if you play genshin on highest possible settings. Because 888 is just too underwhelming. So keep your setting at low or medium.
But other game seems fine with it.
how do you bring up that core information menu aside from the real-time info panel?
is there some other menu option that requires enabling before that info can be displayed?
Its from another app, called CpuFloat
I had been using this workaround since the .210 update.
This only seems to affect Genshin Impact, other games are working fine without having to lock the screen.
Any asus mod out there.... who want to explain what the hell is going on on this phone. it's a total mess... Someone anyone no??? Or atleast tell us when will the next update drop and hopefully fixing this nightmare.....ohh forgot they only answer vaguely... -_-
Moderator watch those discussion or not?This mobile have lot of problem means, why are you introduce the mobile in the market?
This downclocking issue is there in Android 12 beta too so even if a new update drop which will be Android 12 and could be coming this month. We will still be affected by this issue because I think they intentionally downclocked it.
The what ?????👁️👄👁️
Well it was nice knowing you guys 🥲
