With most telephone screens working at 60hz, Niantic have lately taken the choice with Pokémon Go to easily half the framerate on all gadgets, with the intent on slowing it all the way down to a flat 30 frames per second.
However, this newest change has had a big effect on sure telephones that assist increased framerates, just like the Razer Phone line and new One Plus fashions.
On the Razer Phone 2 there is a built-in Game Booster app, which lets you power the CPU clockrate and framerate in video games. Using this and the on-screen framerate recorder discovered within the developer settings, I discovered one thing fascinating.
Forcing the sport to run at 60fps through Game Booster causes Pokémon Go to run at a constant 30fps. It will NEVER go increased than this. Likewise, forcing 90fps makes the sport run at 45fps (the large change One Plus customers have seen as a result of their 90hz display, which is noticeably a lot slower than what they have been used to). Lastly, forcing the sport to run at 120fps leads Pokémon Go to run at 60fps. For Razer Phone customers it is a large change, and after personally enjoying the sport on a easy 120hz display for slightly below 2 years, seeing every part like that is an extremely jarring expertise.
This is an enormous downgrade to the sport’s framework that solely occurred round every week in the past when the most recent replace hit. I really feel like not sufficient folks have been speaking about this transformation, because it has been overshadowed by different points with the sport which occurred across the similar time (Eevee analysis, lacking shinies, and so forth). All customers who personal gadgets that assist excessive framerate telephones have primarily been arbitrarily slowed down for no logical purpose, with completely no assertion from Niantic on this matter as to why they’ve performed this.
