Xiaomi 13 Can Now Run Genshin Impact on 4K Resolution Courtesy of Snapdragon Gen 2

A recent benchmark video revealed that Genshin Impact can be played on the Xiaomi 13 at an astounding 4K quality which proves the potential of the onboard SoC the Snapdragon Gen 2

The results of the tests that the YouTuber Golden Reviewer ran on the game demonstrate that it can easily be played at a resolution of 4K with 30 frames per second. Temperatures were kept under control with the use of an external cooler by Redmagic. This does not have an adverse effect on the device’s performance in any way. When compared to the 720p resolution, which can be seen below, the 4K resolution results in a considerably clearer picture and a far more satisfying overall experience.

A previous test carried out by Golden Reviewer showed off the performance of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in the Xiaomi 13 Pro, as it handily outperforms all rivals. In terms of raw performance, the Xiaomi 13 Pro averaged a frame rate of 59.4 FPS, making it the highest tested so far. Comparatively, the iPhone 14 Pro Max and its A16 Bionic manage 58.4 FPS, while the Dimensity 9200 on the Vivo X90 sits at 57.5 FPS

In terms of efficiency, the Xiaomi 13 Pro and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 were superior to the Dimensity 9200. Both of these devices had lower power consumption and greater efficiency scores than the Dimensity 9200. However, the iPhone 14 Pro Max has a slight lead in some areas. What’s more amazing is that the Xiaomi 13 Pro outperformed all other tested devices in terms of performance while maintaining a lower temperature.

On November 15, 2022, Qualcomm introduced its top-tier Snapdragon Gen 2. It supported the faster LDDR5X memory up to 4200 MHz clock rates. The Adreno GPU equipped with the processor offered up to 25% greater performance and up to 45% more power efficiency. Ray tracinwhichat has been hardware-accelerated is now supported by the Snapdragon platform. Ray tracing is now available from the main Android chipset manufacturers, so it’s feasible that mobile game developers may embrace the new techniquaske they did for PC and console games.

Samsung is about to reveal its newest Galaxy S23 series, which is anticipated to have Snapdragon Gen 2. The SoC is currently being used by Nubia and Xiaomi, making it a direct rival to MediaTek’s Dimensity 9000 series and Apple’s A-series. When the Galaxy S23 Ultra is released, further processing benchmarks are anticipated.
