All Snapdragon Pro Series gamers will now be forced to use Samsung smartphones
Qualcomm has chosen Samsung as an official partner of the Snapdragon Pro series of smartphones.
Among other things, this means that gamers who compete in the Snapdragon Pro Series Mobile Challenge and Mobile Masters will only use Snapdragon SoC-based Samsung Galaxy devices from the Snapdragon Pro Series Mobile Challenge Finals at DreamHack Valencia. That is, we are talking about one of the largest leagues in mobile eSports.
We are committed to bringing high-performance Snapdragon processor-based Samsung Galaxy devices to billions of gamers around the world to keep the spirit of camaraderie and competition going.
Which Samsung smartphones will be used by gamers is still unclear, but in recent years, the company’s devices have gained not the best fame among gamers, which is due to gaming services and related features.
Intel graphics cards are drastically faster in some older games. Intel has worked on support for DirectX 9
Intel Arc graphics cards, among other things, have rather mediocre performance in older games. But today the company has released a fresh driver that significantly changes the situation, although not in all games.
The company has worked on optimization for some specific games, adding native support for DirectX 9. In particular, it is important to note Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, in which the performance of Arc adapters increased by almost 80%. The company has also worked on the 1% percentile, increasing the rate by up to 2.3 times, which should make the gameplay smoother.
Not all old games have received an impressive performance boost, but Intel can still be commended for continuing to work on its accelerators.
