I have enabled x mode on wild rift, and i cannot even play the game with high nor medium graphics without fps drop, even with low graphics it still happens but less frequent. I tried gaming tuning level 3 & max cpu & thermal limit still doesn't work. I tried hardcore setting following wild rift official setting (from taiwan i think? I forgot) still doesn't work. I restarted and redownload the game still doesn't work It happened since Android 11 update... The cpu cannot stay at 2.96, it keeps fluctuating to 826 mhz. I'm so disappointed with this so called high performance phone. Is all of this just a gimmick?

I also tried to change the driver preference to System Graphics Drivers and it didn't do anything


  • Here are some screenshot that i've tried

  • Android 11 is clearly not good for gaming compared to Android 9 and 10. Especially .215 update seems really bad, that’s why I’m still on .211. I personally don’t play games so much, so Android 11 is fine by me.

    But I recommend you to downgrade to Android 9 or 10, if your main purpose is gaming.

  • Thank you. Yeah i wonder why asus doesn't fix it until now. And i actually find some sort of a solution by setting cpu & thermal limit to max and also setting the game profile "same as system setting" which means you have to turn on & off X Mode manually each time you play, but it helps a ton. It causes nearly 0 fps drops with high graphics + high resolution + high effects + post-processing (it still drops when i play with voice call on but it happened after like 1.5 hours playing and only happened like 1-2x compared with almost every teamfight beforehand). But still, if this is the solution, then it makes all the other settings useless and asus still need to fix this :)
