HTC EVO 4G 30fps Graphics Cap Removed by Online Forum Members

June 23, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The frame rate issue for graphics on the HTC EVO 4G handset which capped graphics at 30 frames per second has finally been resolved by certain members of the online forum XDA Developers. The members were able to raise the graphics frame rate on the smartphone to an average of 54 fps and posted videos of the result as evidence on the forum.

The increased frame rate on the HTC EVO 4G allows for better touch tracking on the device. The faster frame rate will also solve the problem of choppy graphics on the handset. Though the method used by the online forum members does not make the functioning of the handset as proper as it should be, it does increase the phone’s graphics performance.

The HTC EVO 4G phone was hit with the 30 fps graphics cap problem soon after it was released on June 4. The frame rate was reportedly locked in the 2D as well as 3D mode in the phone and was also seen in phones with the standard version of HTC’s Sense user interface and on EVO 4G devices featuring a preview build of Android 2.2 Froyo.

Check out the two videos below to learn how you can replicate the act on your HTC EVO 4G. They show the frame rate test running on the device as well as the effect of the increased frame rate on the phone.
