Interestingly, while the Iris Xe Max beat the Iris Xe in Metro Exodus (in fact, the integrated graphics also surpassed the MX350), both the integrated graphics and MX350 were faster in DOTA 2. This seems like an abnormality, in that the higher clocked GPU without shared RAM should generally deliver higher frame rates. Intel said it will test games and have a list in the Intel Graphics Command Center to ensure the best-performing GPU is used. … [Read more...] about Intel Releases Xe Max Graphics, Details Power Sharing and Deep Link

Both phones also have equally impressive displays. The OnePlus 8 packs a 6.55-inch AMOLED display, providing 2400 x 1080 pixels, or 402 ppi. The Pixel 5 has a 6.5-inch OLED screen, which offers slightly fewer pixels overall (at 2340 x 1080 pixels) but 30 more ppi. Because AMOLED screens tend to offer a little more quality than OLEDs, this difference in pixels per inch will likely balance. Both phones also support a 90Hz refresh rate, so you’ll have a hard time distinguishing any significant difference other than the half-inch difference in size. … [Read more...] about Google Pixel 5 vs. OnePlus 8: Can the flagship killer strike again?
The Pixel 5 and the Pixel 4a 5G are Google’s first 5G phones, giving you faster data speeds for everything from downloading videos to streaming games over Stadia. But the Pixel 5 has another neat trick in that it can extend the 5G signal to other devices via a 5G hotspot. The Pixel 5 supports millimeter-wave (mmWave) 5G as well as sub-6GHz 5G to deliver somewhat faster speeds compared with LTE in most U.S. locations, and much faster speeds in crowded urban areas. It’s especially advantageous for Verizon customers, as that service extensively uses mmWave 5G. In comparison, the 4a 5G supports only the sub-6GHz 5G variation of the protocol. That said, it is still early times in 5G land, and while 5G capability can future-proof your phone and leverage specific environments, this distinction may not translate into better network performance for most people. … [Read more...] about Google Pixel 5 vs. Pixel 4a 5G: Which one is right for you?
LG smartphone deals Sorting through LG’s flagship offerings can be a little confusing due to some odd naming conventions, but there’s no denying that this brand pumps out some very good Android smartphones. Not unlike Samsung, LG has two different flagship lines: The standard G-series devices and the premium V-series phones, both of which now bear LG’s “ThinQ” branding. Last year, the company added three new devices to the G series stable, the LG G8 ThinQ (the successor to the 2018 G7 ThinQ), and the truly unique dual-screen ThinQ G8x, while the V series saw a refresh in the newer 5G-capable LG V50 ThinQ that succeeded the 2018 V35 ThinQ and V40 ThinQ. More recently, we saw the LG Velvet and dual-screen LG V60 ThinQ. … [Read more...] about Best smartphone deals for November 2020: iPhone, Samsung, and Google Pixel
