Google Pixel 5 sees huge GPU performance gains with April 2021 update

The most recent programming update for the Google Pixel lineup as of late began carrying out to clients. The update includes a large group of network, camera, and stability improvements for the whole setup, alongside performance optimizations for the Google Pixel 5 and the Pixel 4a 5G. These optimizations have significantly improved the gaming execution of Google’s most recent leader, according to ongoing reports.

At the point when Google carried out the principal stable Android 11 release for its Pixel gadgets, a few clients saw that the graphics benchmark numbers fundamentally declined following the update. According to HotHardware’s testing, the Pixel 4 XL and Pixel 4a endured a significant shot in graphical execution. Since the Pixel 5 and the Pixel 4a 5G dispatched with Android 11 pre-introduced, we had no real way to confirm if the telephones additionally endured a comparable issue. Notwithstanding, Anandtech noticed that the Pixel 5 immeasurably failed to meet expectations comparable gadgets highlighting the Snapdragon 765G chip. This persuaded that the Android 11 update was the guilty party.

In the April 2021 update, the changelog makes reference to some “performance optimizations for certain graphics-intensive apps & games.” Andreas Proschofsky from Der Standard tried the GPU execution of the Pixel 5 after the update utilizing 3DMark, and he tracked down that the outcomes are currently 30-half better than anyone might have expected. As per late tweets, his Pixel 5 scored around 2278/2260 for the OpenGL/Vulkan tests in 3DMark Sling Shot Extreme before the April update. In the wake of introducing the update, the telephone scored 3286/3083 in a similar test, which is a generous improvement. Andrei from Anandtech has additionally affirmed that the update has “essentially doubled” his Pixel 5’s exhibition. They expect that the Pixel 4a 5G will see comparable additions, given that it’s likewise referenced in the official changelog.

Right now, they don’t have a clue about the specific reason for the GPU execution relapse. They aren’t sure if there’s an issue in the Android 11 update that is explicitly causing this issue or if Google wrecked some place. They will try to tell you when they discover.
