[Q] Low GPU performance, could it be a faulty S4?
I couldn't help but notice that in Antutu benchmark my gpu score was way lower than the stock S4, but also lower then HTC One too!
Some games were lagging too, but i'm not sure if the gpu is to blame here.
Anyway, in one day I tried oc on gpu, oc/uv on cpu, 4 different kernel, 2 TW roms, one GPE rom, CM10.2 rom, and in the end total wipe and flash latest stock rom with Odin.
Nothing worked!Gpu scores were still lower than what they were supposed to be?
Best case scenario my gpu was on par with HTC One, but after oc.
What is wrong with my S4??
Can you give me any advices?
Could the hot climate affect thermal throttling?
(Does the gpu even have thermal throttling?I thought only cpu had thermal throttling on the S4.)
I've attached a screenshot of my scores, take a look at how small the gpu (orange) bar is, compared to HTC One.
I put my device in the freezer for 5 minutes to get rid of the ambient temperature factor and after I tested again, 3d scores were normal.
Can ambient temperature really affect performance so much though?
Press thanks if i've helped you!
It's not much,but it does matter to me.
Anyone plays FIFA 13 on Origin?
