ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe Gaming And Graphics Performance

Next up, we have GFXBench, which has been one of our standard mobile graphics performance benchmarks for quite a while now. In order to ensure V-sync and resolution are not limiting factors, we are comparing Offscreen test results here.

We also ran Futuremark's 3DMark benchmark, which has been a staple 3D graphics benchmark at HotHardware across all mobile and desktop platforms for many years. In particular we ran 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited, which is targeted for mobile devices and also runs at 720p in offscreen mode, so as to take display resolution out of the equation. We tossed Basemark X into the mix too, which is another cross-platform graphics benchmark.

Pushing The Pixels


In the Manhattan off-screen test, the ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe trailed other flagship devices by a few frames per second. In the T-Rex test, however, the ZenFone 3 competes more favorably as is among the fastest devices at the top of the charts.



The ZenFone 3 Deluxe performed relatively well in the 3DMark Unlimited test. Here, its Physics score is strong and the overall Ice Storm score is among the very best. Tunneling down into the actual framerates in the 3DMark game tests, we see the ZenFone 3 Deluxe and its Adreno 530 GPU put up one of the highest framerates in GT2 and the third best in GT1.


The ZenFone 3 Deluxe once again just missed taking top honors here, falling victim to only the Moto Z Droid by a couple of percentage points in the Basemark X Game Test.
