Framerates and gameplay

Everyone loves to have high frame rate when they play exciting games. The Kirin 980 octacore remains Huawei’s most powerful processor in current service and has been deployed in their flagship P30 and P30 Pro series phones. Built on a 7nm process and featuring a dual neural processing unit (NPU) to tackle AI related tasks, the Kirin 980 is able to offer significant AI-related benefits to prolong the phone’s battery life in the field by optimising app usage and battery expenditure as well as intelligently selecting the best settings depending on what you’re aiming.

This enables high framerate gaming with no lag. We tested different games at their highest setting. Here are the results.
