The Pixel 7 Pro has a lot going for it. This includes improved cameras, machine learning, and AI tricks, as well as the new Tensor G2 processor. Although the new chip has proven to be faster than the Pixel 6 series, one reviewer''s analysis shows the Pixel 7 Pro struggled against competing competitors in gaming.
According to a Twitter fan, the Pixel 7 Pro performs extremely poorly in gaming and fails to match this year''s flagship phones. After playing Genshin Impact, a heavy-duty open-world game, the blogger published test results. It enabled 60 frames in testing.
The Pixel 7 Pro was compared to 59.4 billion in bloggers testing, while the frame rates fell to around 40 fps just 30 seconds into the test. For comparison, the iPhone 14 Pro Max had a 58.4 fps average, and the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra had a 42.1 fps.
Numbers don''t lie, and the Tensor G2 is just not powerful or powerful in late 2022. Google should be ashamed for launching an Exynos2100 remake in late 2022!Pixel 7 Pro Genshin Impact Gaming FPS Test https://t.co/dRZwIhBB1C via @YouTube #Pixel7Pro #GenshinImpact pic.twitter.com/jNuedSf0YbOctober 14, 20
In terms of gaming, the Tensor G2 does not hold a candle to Apples A16 Bionic or even the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. In fact, Google''s second gen Tensor performs similarly to the Exynos 2200 and last years Exynos 2100.
We conducted a variety of performance tests on the Tensor G2 as well as for our review. Overall, the chip performed significantly better than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 that is better than the Snapdragon 888 a year ago. Apples A16 did not defeat the Tensor G2 in our testing.
The Pixel 7 Pro remained up with the Galaxy Z Fold 4 in the Adobe Premiere rush 4K-1080p transcoding test, although the iPhone 14 Pro exceeded all phones here. These are overall performance standards that do not mention the gaming potential.
When I used Genshin Impact on my Pixel 7 Pro, I found the game to be quite functional. There was no noticeable lag, and the anime-like graphics looked more realistic. However, the phone did heat up, but it isn''t out of the ordinary for most flagships these days.
The Pixel 7 Pro may not be the''''gaming phone around, but it won''t hurt you on slightly less graphic intensive games. However, if you are avid gamer looking at the results the blogger has posted, the Pixel 7 series may not be for you.
The Pixel 7 Pro gaming figures aren''t the only reason for concern. Recently, our Pixel 7 Pro battery test results showed significant improvement. However, Google may have improved the Tensor G2 to a certain extent, but it still has much to do.
