Gaming Performance of Snapdragon X Elite Disappoints Early Reviewers

Journalists from various outlets have tested laptops powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon X Elite processor and reported a significant issue: insufficient gaming performance. Reviewers from Notebookcheck also received a laptop with this processor, confirmed the problem, and published FPS measurements for popular games.

In their tests, Notebookcheck used the ASUS Vivobook S 15 OLED. According to their reviewers, the laptop “does not provide satisfactory gaming performance”: some games failed to launch, others froze after loading, and some ran very slowly. Another issue noted was the inability to adjust the screen resolution in certain titles to match the laptop’s display. Here are the FPS results at 1080p resolution:

  • Strange Brigade (ultra settings): 37 fps
  • Dota 2 Reborn (ultra settings): 51.1 fps
  • Witcher 3 (ultra settings, HBAO+): 19 fps
  • Final Fantasy X (high graphics settings): 15.6 fps
  • GTA V (highest settings, 4x MSAA, 16x FX AF): 20.4 fps

Similar results have been reported in other reviews. However, Notebookcheck did mention that the overall performance of the processor is “excellent.” They also noted that even when running on battery power, the laptop with the Snapdragon X Elite can deliver nearly its full power (with an approximate 5% increase when plugged into an outlet).

For American readers keen on gaming performance, these results indicate that while the Snapdragon X Elite might excel in general tasks, it currently falls short in delivering the robust gaming experience many expect from high-end laptops.
