It’s not that Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is unaffordable, but Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is more cost-effective. As the standard configuration of last year’s flagship phone, the performance of Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is still very good now. Coupled with mature adjustments and the decentralization of flagship configurations, the price this year has also been hit to the 2-3k price range. In two words So delicious.
Take the recently popular OnePlus Ace 3, which is not only stacked in terms of performance, screen, battery life, design and workmanship, but also has the same flagship performance adjustment technology as the OnePlus 12, and its actual performance So what, let’s start an experience analysis of the performance of OnePlus Ace 3.
In terms of core configuration, OnePlus Ace 3 is also in line with flagships. In addition to the standard Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, it is also equipped with a full version of LPDDR5X and UFS 4.0 flash memory to form a flagship performance iron triangle. As the industry leader in large memory configurations, OnePlus Ace 3 series starts with 12GB, provides up to 16GB + 1TB ultra-large memory combination, and supports memory fusion of up to 12GB, completely saying goodbye to storage anxiety.
At the software level, it also has three self-developed black technology blessings: “Micro-architecture supercomputing engine”, “Memory Gene Recombination 2.0”, and “Renewal Storage Technology”, bringing better processor tuning and memory tuning at the same level .
Next, let’s take a look at the actual game performance. In order to maximize the performance of OnePlus Ace 3, here we use high-performance mode + e-sports mode for testing. The game quality and frame rate are set to the highest/extremely high .

At present, Honor of Kings supports the more stressful HDR special effects + extremely high frame rate + ultimate picture quality at the same time. Although the special effects and picture quality are higher, the OnePlus Ace 3 still runs at full speed throughout the game, with an average frame rate of 119.8FPS. , average power 4.2W.

The high-definition 90-frame video game also follows the same straight line. The average frame rate reaches 89.8FPS, the frame rate variance is only 1.1FPS, and the average power consumption is 4.6. The maximum temperature of the body in half an hour is 39.3°, and the phone heat is not obvious.

Even when running Genshin Impact Xumi to fight monsters with a high load, the average frame rate can reach 60 frames. Excluding the inevitable fluctuations in Xumi City, the frame rate variance of 2FPS is quite stable overall, and The average power consumption is only 5.08W, and the overall temperature of the fuselage is not too high. Compared with the previous Genshin Impact, which was very hot at full frame, it is just a warm-up level.

When it comes to the heavily loaded Xingtiexianzhou Luofu, OnePlus Ace 3 performs very well, with an average frame rate of 58.3FPS. Since it is a running frame rate that is relatively fast throughout the whole process, the frame rate fluctuations appear to be greater than during combat. The scene is more obvious, and the average power consumption is also controlled below 7W (≈6.8W).

Judging from the test results, the performance of OnePlus Ace 3 in mainstream games is basically at the leading level in its class. The key point is that the temperature and power consumption are well controlled with high frame smoothness. This is all thanks to the newly upgraded Tiangong Cooling System Pro, with a 9140mm² 10,000-level single VC, combined with a new generation of aerospace-grade superconducting thermal materials and aerospace-grade space structures. Through three-dimensional heat dissipation, the heat dissipation capacity of OnePlus Ace 3 is directly When it’s full, the performance is released hard enough and for a long enough time.
Of course, as a performance phone, high frame stability is just a basic requirement. This time OnePlus Ace 3 also debuted GSS game status communication technology, which brings “HyperBoost Game Frame Stabilization Engine”, “Hyper Frame Super Picture Engine”, ” “Lingxi Touch” and “Cloud Computing Private Network” are the four self-developed game black technologies.
In addition to the actual performance of full frame power saving mentioned above, we also focus on improving the game loading speed. When we usually start the game or transfer between maps, we can obviously feel that it is faster, and we can also switch to the background. Key lightning activates Genshin Impact.
The super-frame super-picture engine uses the Display P1 display chip and Pixelworks independent display chip, combined with AI super-resolution rendering, to increase the game resolution to 1.5K & the game frame rate to 120Hz, and supports 1.5K super-resolution and 120Hz super-frame Opening at the same time, the gaming experience is doubled. Let’s take a look at the 1.5K + 120 frames dual-opening Genshin Impact.
