DanishbluntWell, I don't let my temperature get above 50C, there are people who are playing above 56C with the latest A12 update on a group which I won't mention here.
Problem is you're probably going to kill your phone with downgraded firmware. ASUS heavy throttling is intergrated to prevent the power IC to kill itself.
DanishbluntIf you are talking about my videos then I always record my videos at 60 FPS. I am not sure why the video looks a bit laggy in google drive, I have even tried downloading my file from Google Drive and looked at the video properties and it says 30 frames/seconds.
Oh and before I forget, the reason your recording is choppy is because you record at 30fps. Silly goose
DanishbluntYes, some of the users in the group I am in constantly asks for locked 2.84GHz clock speed profile and I tell them that they would be generating unnecessary heat and draining battery.
So let me clearify whats going on here as there seems to be half knowledge being spread here.
The CPU clock does matter, of course it does. However you didn't really understand what some of the guys are trying to explain to you and you cannot really be blamed for not understanding, they just suck at explaining things. The reason why the CPU reading in armory crate doesn't necessarily mean bad performance is because armory crate only shows the prime core. If a game is programmed to utilize your 2 of your big cores while not using the prime core, then obviously you'll not need to use the prime cores full speed, clocking it at maximum speed would give you no performance boost and waste your power for no good reason.
That being said, clockspeed does matter, armory crate is quite useless on some phones as its configs are being overritten in many cases which effectively makes it useless. This seems to be very common in newer revisions of the Rog5, this is more than likely done to prevent the power IC to kill itself as it's very common on the Rog series. The problem however is, due to fluctuating clockspeeds and switching between cores in many games due to the power management gamers will suffer from very annoying and inconsistent frametimes, something that the people who try to tell you clockspeed doesn't matter do not understand. Despite having close to 90FPS, the game will feel super jank due to very bad frametimes, it feels much less responsive and less fluid as it should be.
lets say your frametimes are:
22.5 22.5 22.5 22.5 = 90fps, the game will feel responsive, smooth and nice
however when you have:
12.5 32.5 2.5 42.5 = 90fps, the game will feel incredibly jank and bad.
Both are 90FPS, however only one of them are giving you a responsive and nice experience, while the other is some jank crap. Sadly the latter is happening due to these power management restrictions set by the Phone. The problem is real, it's not a placebo, it's a thing and always has been a thing.
SarkiriAs said before I had activated the notifications but since both are deactivated and I no longer had the overlay.
You need to disable both of these settings or it will not work. I had this same issue on .210 .226 .229 and even on the downgraded firmware .88 from 22 April 2021 so it is not a recent issue.
Activating either one of these settings will prevent CPU Float from running so make sure you disable both of these settings "No Alerts" and "No Calls" from Game Genie.
