I have today compared my X3 to my old 930 because I experience slow performance on the device from time to time. The 930 does respond quicker. Because of that I ran some test programs and I can see the device are behind in Grapics.. In Multibech 2 I get bad results in the graphics test. Now the test maybe inaccurate in many ways but my 930 with the same Windows version gets higher points then the X3. Bad unit or a factory reset?
I agree with you - the graphics on the Elite x3 should be better than they are. I've seen glitches in various games, shadows not rendering correctly, titles not starting at all. However, I haven't seen any feedback from HP despite posts I've made in this forum with photos to illustrate the point as well.
They did eventually fix the HDCP problems with projectors. I can see the value in that. 🙂
Clearly, HP positioned this as an Enterprise device. Optimizations for graphics performance have taken a backseat to that functionality. It seems to be more important to them that RDP & HP Workspace works, their 1st party accessories, and Office titles. Any of the entertainment titles are a distant last thought. Which is a shame, there's some really capable hardware in the Elite x3.
I've been disappointed with the weak performance I've seen in games like jetpack joyride and rayman fiesta run. I know it's not a priority for this phone, but given the supposedly capable hardware, it is disappointing.
Perhaps if they were to integrate some kind of high performance mode that you could enable if you were willing to sacrifice battery life?
