What to Look for When Buying a New Gaming Tablet

one. CPU is a key fea­ture. If it’s pow­er­ful, most games will run. No one can guar­an­tee a suc­cess­ful launch of 100% at max­i­mum speed. As time pass­es, more demand­ing games are emerg­ing for which the top hard­ware of 2020–2021 is already out­dat­ed. Pow­er­ful proces­sors for gam­ing devices are made by such com­pa­nies as Snap­drag­on, Intel, Medi­atek and Apple. Most tablets suit­able for gam­ing are: Qual­comm Snap­drag­on 860–865, HiSil­i­con Kirin 980–990, Apple A12Z.

2. CPU fre­quen­cy, MHz. This para­me­ter affects the speed of data pro­cess­ing, per­for­mance. The low­er the indi­ca­tor, the slow­er the device works and freezes more. For the bud­get seg­ment, a fre­quen­cy of 1900 MHz is con­sid­ered accept­able. But for top gam­ing tablets in 2022, it should be from 2500 MHz.

3. Num­ber of Cores. Cores are com­put­ing units. The more of them, the more pro­duc­tive the device. The faster it launch­es games, opens files. The opti­mal indi­ca­tor is from 6.

four. Screen size — for a gam­ing tablet, this char­ac­ter­is­tic is impor­tant. All small objects are vis­i­ble on the big screen. It is bet­ter to choose mod­els with a screen of 10 inch­es. The qual­i­ty, clar­i­ty and rich­ness of the pic­ture are no less impor­tant. There­fore, the screen res­o­lu­tion must be at least 1920x1080. If the pic­ture is dull, of poor qual­i­ty, a per­son will strain his eye­sight more dur­ing the game. And this will lead to dry­ness and red­ness of the eyes.

5. Bat­tery — a pow­er­ful gam­ing tablet must with­stand the increased dai­ly load. There­fore, the capac­i­ty should be from 7000 mAh. This is enough for 7–12 hours of active use.

6. RAM from 6 GB. The more it is, the less the tablet freezes, the more pro­duc­tive it is.

7. Built-in mem­o­ry — from 128 GB. So that there is enough space for all your favorite games.

eight. Body mate­r­i­al. If increased shock resis­tance is impor­tant for you, it is bet­ter to choose a mod­el in a met­al case. Plas­tic ones are eas­i­er to dam­age.

It is real­ly pos­si­ble to choose a high-qual­i­ty gam­ing tablet in dif­fer­ent price cat­e­gories. Pho­to: surfacenews.ir
