I've been wondering how the Samsung S9 with Snapdragon behaves when throttling.

it's very easy to test... just run this app called CPU throttling Test and take a look at Temperature, Clock and Performance.

This is a Screenshot from my Sony Xperia XZ2:

You can clearly see the Temperature reaching a critical point and the Performance dropping, while Frequency stays at the same 2.8ghz.

Here we have a OP 6 which does show the same behaviour... no Frequency Limit!

Looking at the SD835 Essential Phone:

or the even older SD820 HTC 10:

We do see a CPU Frequency Limit on both devices.

So... is this Max Frequency yet still reduced Performance a Snapdragon 845 thingy?
Simply do the Test for 2-5 minutes (until throttling becomes obvious) and we will know.

P.S going to Options and chaging Threads from 20 to 7 might totally change the behaviour of this test!
P.P.S Go into Options and correctly set Thermal Zones! If you don't know which nr is what... Terminal / ADB shell "for file in sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone*/type; do echo "$file"; cat "$file"; done"

Somebody made a video with 3 SD 845 phones, but he got higher performance, did you change number of threads from default 20 and where phones cold when you begin testing?
I can't post a link, just search "OnePlus 6 vs Sony XZ2 vs Xiaomi Black Shark" on youtube.
