The first bechmark of a Xiaomi Mi 11 has revealed the enormous shortcomings of the SoC Snapdragon 888 made by Samsung Foundry to a manufacturing process of 5nm EUV, and is that this SoC consumes a large amount of energy to perform like the Apple A13 Bionic @ 7nm SoC from TMSC, with the problem that this inevitably translates into in a rise in temperature which is leading to throttling.

After passing the SoC through various benchmarks such as Geekbench, GFXBench, AnTuTu, SPECInt, 3DMark and the games PUBG: Mobile and Genshin Impact, it is clear that the processor is fast but very inefficient. As an example they put AnTuTu, and is that after performing this benchmark the SoC increased its temperature and 12ºC and lost 4% of battery, while any top-of-the-range smartphone has its temperature increased by 4-5ºC at the end of the benchmark.

On the benchmark SPECint, el Cortex-X1 @ 2.84 GHz revela a 26% performance improvement compared to the Cortex-A77 (Snapdragon 865) at the same frequency, but consuming 65 percent more energy.

The intermediate cores, the Cortex-A78 @ 2.42 GHz offer a performance improvement of 7% compared to their predecessors (Cortex-A77) but they consume 25% more energy, while in PUBG: Mobile, with the HDR + active and @ 60 FPS stable, the smartphones “produces a lot of heat“and the battery dropped from 86 to 77% after about 30 minutes playing. In the Genshin Impact game, the Xiaomi Mi 11 reached 50ºC after 10 minutes of playing, seeing how the performance fell from 60 to 30 FPS, so throttling made an appearance to protect the device.
