Why is “anti-cheating” an advertised feature? People who cheat don’t want that feature, and people who don’t cheat don’t care about that feature (except to the extent that it may impact performance). I understand why it might be nice from an overall community perspective, but not why you would bother to advertise it.

I wonder how Xiaomi is looking at these chipsets. I would jump to order a Mi Pad 5 with SD 730G, since I did not order Mi Pad 4 and I am expecting Mi Pad 5 to really be THE tablet for gaming at a decent price.
