Meizu 16Xs performance experience: don't always look down on Qualcomm Snapdragon 675

ByAraldo Mcgoldrick 2020-01-02 749

[gearbest Evaluation] after years of market education by mobile phone manufacturers, consumers finally know one thing when they buy a mobile phone, that is, only CPU theory. Whether it is high-end, middle-end or low-end, the most concerned issue when buying a phone is what CPU the phone uses. For flagship models, it is insincere not to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 mobile platform; why do the mid-end phones have to be on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710; low-end phones? What is a low-end machine? Can Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 work?

But in fact, due to the different target user groups, for high-end and medium-and low-end machines, we have to follow different criteria. For high-end computers, there is nothing wrong with putting performance first. After all, having top-notch hardware performance is one of the basic qualities of a flagship machine. But for low-and medium-end phones, the balance of quality is a necessary factor for a good mobile phone, and high performance should be regarded as the icing on the cake. Meizu 16Xs, as a new product of Meizu's 1500 yuan file, how does it perform under the blessing of Qualcomm Snapdragon? Let's take a look at it together.

 

Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 is a treasure

From Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 to 660 to 710, these chips are called by users as a generation of gods U, Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 is placed in their halo, do not show the mountain does not leak. But if you dig deep into this chip, you will find that it turns out to be a treasure.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 chip, as a mid-end processor launched by Qualcomm at the end of 2018, adopts the fourth-generation Kryo 460core of 11nm LPP process. It has two A76 cores with 2.0GHz frequency and six A55 cores with 1.7GHz frequency. No matter it is the process or framework, it is the mainstream level at present.

What benefits will such a design bring? The first is the performance improvement of A76. According to the official data of ARM, although A76 uses the same v8.2 architecture as its predecessor, after a new micro-architecture design, the performance is improved by up to 35%, the power is increased by up to 40%, and the edge computing power is increased by 4 times.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 also carries a multicore artificial intelligence engine AI Engine,AI that improves performance by 50 per cent compared with the previous generation. Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 uses heterogeneous computing, Hexagon DSP, Adreno GPU and Kryo CPU to work together to make terminal-side AI applications run faster and more efficiently. In addition, Qualcomm Snapdragon 675's DSP-based security solution makes terminals more secure, with built-in Snapdragon X12 LTE modems that support downlink speeds up to 600Mbps and three-carrier aggregation, making network speeds fast and stable. So isn't Qualcomm Snapdragon 675, which has gathered so much cool techs, a treasure?

For most people, they do not need and will not understand what has been mentioned above, and the criterion for judging a processor is very simple and rude, that is, "run a score if you don't accept it." So what is the actual score of Meizu 16Xs? Let's talk with the data.

As the most well-known Android running software, Android Rabbit will naturally be the first to play. In addition to Meizu 16Xs, the editor also chooses two other brands of mobile phones. One of them uses Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and the other uses Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor. In the end, the total score of Meizu 16Xs is 182867, including 82192 for CPU, 36491 for GPU, 49955 for UX and 14229 for MEM. The total score of the phone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor is 207563, including CPU 71308, GPU 84428, UX 43387 and MEM 8440. The total score of the phone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor is 171737, including CPU 67636, GPU 48730, UX 45688 and MEM 9683.

From the data, we can see that the running scores of Meizu 16Xs with Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor are higher than Qualcomm Snapdragon 710. Compared with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, only GPU lags behind, and its CPU computing power is higher than Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. This can also be reflected in the test score of GeekBench. Meizu 16Xs scored 2374 points for single core and 6016 points for multi-core, while Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 scored 1821 for single core and 5963 for multi-core, which shows that the performance of the fourth-generation Kryo 460core is still quite excellent. 

 

Meizu 16Xs can perfectly control the mainstream mobile game

Running points is only one aspect, the game can better reflect the actual performance of a mobile phone. The editor uses wild car racing 9, Honor of Kings, Game for Peace and avalanche 3 games, and the data monitored by Gamebench is used to reflect the game performance of Meizu 16Xs. During the test, the four games were switched continuously, and because the Gamebench needed the phone to connect to the computer to test, this part also tested the heating performance of the Meizu 16Xs game for a long time and in the charging state. Due to compatibility issues, Gamebench only showed a real-time frame rate curve and did not give an average frame rate when testing Honor of Kings and Game for Peace. )

The first game tested by the editor is Wild Racing 9. As a masterpiece of the current mobile phone, many mobile phones run to say, "my concubine can't do it!" For Meizu 16Xs, it can not only run wild racing 9 perfectly, but also control the temperature of the fuselage perfectly. The temperature of the fuselage is 32.1 degrees before the game and 39 degrees after the game.

The following games are Honor of Kings and Game for Peace, which can stabilize the highest frame rate under the current special effects and bring a smooth experience after opening all the two special effects. At the same time, after more than an hour of the game, the temperature of the phone rose to 40.3 degrees, but the temperature was still within an acceptable range. After all, the temperature of the processor running for a long time and high load and charging did not exceed the editor's expectations. After a long game and the temperature of the fuselage is 40.2 degrees, the temperature of collapse III can be stabilized at 30 frames. It can be said that the performance of Meizu 16Xs exceeded my expectations.

Why does Meizu 16Xs have such excellent performance? First of all, Qualcomm has optimized a number of mobile games, as well as game engines including Unity, Unreal, Messiah and NeoX. At the same time, Meizu 16Xs has Hyper Gaming exclusive game optimization, which can intelligently identify the load of game threads and allocate resources reasonably during the game process. At the same time, Hyper Gaming technology can also accurately predict the upcoming group battles and high-load scenarios, avoiding frame rate fluctuations and other situations during the game. With a number of blessings, Meizu 16Xs has a game experience that is not inferior to that of the flagship.

Ending:

Whether in terms of processor performance, running points or game performance, Meizu 16Xs presents surprising results for us. For ordinary users, when talking about WeChat and watching videos, there will not be too many scenarios that will fully release the full performance of the phone. But in terms of performance, Meizu 16Xs sets a very high lower limit for users and can easily hold any scene.
