So...any new love for Evo after latest update and 30fps cap removed?
So does anyone notice better performance on their Evo after the latest update? I tried to play asphalt5 when i got my evo launch day and i returned/uninstalled it b/c it played like crap. downloaded the lite/free version after the update and seems to play pretty well. I'm not rooted, my phone is stock. I was just wondering if anyone can definatively say the phone performs better after the update. After an albeit limited try (asphalt5 lite) test, it seems to be better. What do you guys think.
Oh and I ran quadrant and my phone rated 2nd after only the nexus one w/2.2 for what that's worth.
neocore was 28.6 fps. i don't remember what it was before the update
linpack: mflops: 33.136; time: 5.68; norm res: 5.68; precision: some long number i don't feel like typing in..
so how are us evo owners doing now?

There's definitely a difference. Ever since I went custom rom and installed a kernel with the fps uncapped I could see there's a huge difference. I'm also o/c'd so that may also play a role, but even at 998mhz and uncapped there's definitely a big difference.

What's the difference between the xda cap removal and htc's removal? I heard the kernal only doubles the screens refresh rate which made it smooth. HTC might have done something different then just double the refresh rate of the screen. I could be wrong somewheres but that what I got anytime I read a post about the xda kernal. Is there a true way to see what and if there is a difference between the 2.

I don't think he's trying to compare if there's a difference between the htc uncap and the custom kernel uncap. I think he's talking about stock to stock. Unless I'm misunderstanding him. I made a post in the hacks section about how htc uncapped it. No answer yet though. I'm curious to see how they did it. One thing that I did notice, the htc uncap kernel seems to have better fps deviation numbers which would indicate that it's not done by the double refresh rate trick.

Looks like we have to call geek squad for this one lmao. I have to say that all of my recroded videos playback great. I have had no problems or skipping since the update. I used to be embarrassed to show off my videos because they always skiped while playing back. Now its %100 better, and i show off all my great looking videos to my friends and family.

All my 720p videos, old and new are now playing perfectly! I rooted my EVO the day before the update was announced but was happily surprised to see the rooted ROM available before the OTA hit. I flashed to the rooted version of the OTA ROM and was quite happy with the cap lift. Screens scroll beautifully now. Haven't seen any improvement is 3D games, but that's not a big deal to me. My biggest beef with the EVO was the laggy scrolling and the messed up 720p video playback, and both of these issue are resolved for me. I'm a happy camper at this point.-Stay thirsty my friends.

Yes same here, everything I read said that the kernal doubled the refresh rate of the screen, and how could the Max FPS be more unstable then the capped 30fps? I'm a bit confussed. As long as the phone itself is running smooth and apps and games are running and opening faster and/or better, how could that be more unstable? The cap removal has done very well with everything, and as i and others have noted, the videos that have had skipping problems playback with no problems now.
