The enhanced Qualcomm Kryo 585 CPU core is used, with a large core frequency of 3.2GHz. According to real-world testing, the games "King's Glory" and "Peace Elite" can be kept running at full frame rate without pressure, and the game only consumes 8% of power for half an hour at maximum brightness, and the back of the body is only about 38 degrees, so the performance and power consumption are optimally balanced.
