    Xiaomi 11T Pro is throttling the performance for games like Genshin Impact

    According to an Anandtech review of the Xiaomi 11T Pro, the company might be artificially throttling performance on the device. It is maybe doing so in lieu of avoiding excessive heat generation. He also found that the company would let the processor perform at full speeds with anonymous applications. However, it may throttle the processor’s power when it tricks it as known applications. It’s similar to issues other smartphone makers, including Apple and Samsung. They have all suffered these accusations in the past. This is usually written off by companies as safety features of sorts.

Then, the 11T Pro throttled its performance. It basically means that the Xiaomi 11T Pro reached its peak performance. It thinks a demanding game is running in a bid to prevent overheating and protect the internal components. Meanwhile, the reviewer also argues that such performance throttling instances should project onto the benchmark scores as well.

    Forcing a reduced performance isn’t a new thing like Xiaomi 11T Pro. Apparently, Xiaomi is able to recognize how much heat apps will generate and as a result, it will throttle the performance to avoid overheating. We need to test and see how many apps this will affect. We don’t think that the company will remove this in a near future, as it can easily say that it’s a method to extend the phone and the battery health.
