Early benchmarks show the Asus ROG phone is faster than other S845-powered phones

Asus cherry-picked the best Snapdragon 845 units, the ones that can clock up to 2.96 GHz. This binning process gives the ROG phone a 200 MHz advantage over other flagships and gaming phones. To keep the faster chips cool, Asus put a copper heat spreader on them and connected it to a 3D vapor chamber. Was all of that worth it? Let’s look at what the early Geekbench scores have to say.

And the answer is – yes, there’s an advantage, but it’s slim. To be fair, the ROG phone is launching next quarter, so there’s time to improve on those results even further.
