Performance cores curbed to improve temperature and battery consumption
Have you noticed the deteriorated performance with the latest update (August 2022 patch)?
The snapdragon A78 and X1 cores cannot any more reach the peak frequency or , at least, they are limited to lower frequency.
When I bought the smartphone with Android 11, using Geekbench and High performance battery profile, I got 1115 in single core.
Now I get 703, more like a snapdragon 855 then 888.
