Performance cores curbed to improve temperature and battery consumption

Star II
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.
Try yourself.

Can confirm this. Even did my own testing using different Advance Profiles.
Those expected scores from 888 are until the .89 update.
The .113 update introduced major bugs. This and the high temp using the camera.

Interesting... I get the full 1120 points in GB5. And no overheating either. This time, I did the .113 update via full file (not incremental update, as I usually do, not OTA).

I don't think that's the discriminating factor, I also did the .113 update via full file.
Perhaps the device heats up so easily that it takes very little to throttle it

Star II
I keeped the phone powered off for the last day.
Today I powered It on and executed geekbench and I got 1113 points.
To me It seems that the phone heats up just with light use and throttle to lower the temperature
