My S9+ has the Exynos 9810 chipset. As I said, you need to tweak the crap out of the device, Samsung completely messed up there. What I did:
2. installed GLTools
3. set fake cpu profile 1 cpu core (thus locking Magic Dosbox to the first Mongoose core, running at 2.7 GHz)
4. disabled power saving
Still, the results are very inconsistent. The cpu governor keeps downclocking the cpu even at moderate temperatures (<60°C), so my results are usually between 550-600.
Performance governor is also completely broken on Exynos. It's only available in certain custom kernels, and it's highly unstable, too.4. April 2019 at 0:30 #7061
Ok now im done with those benchmarks for my device Galaxy Note 8 SM-N9500 Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 🙂
interactive governor = ~1000
performance governor = ~800
interactive governor = ~850
performance governor = ~720
interactive governor = ~870
performance governor = ~690
Edit: Btw Alex what app did you used to change the cpu profile to 1 core?4. April 2019 at 8:01 #7062
I used GLTools, and a custom kernel with performance governor enabled. That was incredibly buggy and crash-prone though, so I reverted to a rooted stock kernel.
I’m getting about 550-600 realtics now.
Samsung’s kernel management is ridiculous, it keeps force downclocking the main core to 1.8 GHz instead of 2.7 GHz. No idea why they’re doing this, my cpu doesn’t heat up at all. 🤷♂️4. April 2019 at 13:47 #7064
Ah GLTools i have read about it yesterday, but thought it was only usefull for GPU and not CPU. I am on stock kernel too right now but want to test a custom kernel out when it will be available because i need to set SELinux to permissive and test sixaxis controller app out, heard it can work when SELinux is set to permissive.4.

Sadly, GLTools has been pulled from Google Play, no idea why. And Sixaxis Controller doesn’t work with Oreo/Pie anymore, at least on my devices. 🙁
I’m using a GameSir G4s controller (Xbox controller clone) with my phone. It’s good build quality, has a phone clip, and is working out of the box.9. April 2019 at 20:15 #7085
I’d love to know how you get 680 realtics with the Samsung Galaxy S9+ with Exynos. I have the exact same phone with no root or tweaks, and I can only get around 795 realtics…9. April 2019 at 22:44 #7086
It’s pretty unstable on the Exynos, results can vary greatly. A cool cpu and max performance settings do help, but still, I’m getting anything between 680, and 980.
With root access and a couple of tweaks, things get better, and potentially faster. But the benchmark app suffers badly fron the power saving issue that’s being discussed in another thread. Unless I’m lucky, or forcing performance with root access, the process keeps being offloaded onto the low power cpu cores, which results in rather high scores.
The Exynos 9810 is kind of a mixed bag for me. It’s capable of insane performance (I got as low as 425 realtics with the Doom timedemo in Magic Dosbox), but the instability of the scores is incredibly annoying.10. April 2019 at 22:57 #7091
Yeah, that makes sense. I’ve had as low as 740 once, but now 820 is the average. Quite annoying, to be honest. Maybe I’ll root my phone once the warranty expires, so I can get some better performance from it, like I used to do with my Galaxy S5. Thanks for your reply!11. April 2019 at 1:40 #7092
btw if you add the benchmark to Samsung’s Game Launcher you can speed it up with the stock governor it wen from
interactive governor = ~870 –> ~810 with added to Game Launcher
performance governor = ~690 –> ~690 with added to Game Launcher
