Google Pixel 5 sees massive GPU performance gains with April 2021 update - XDA Developers
Apr 06, 2021 50 secs

The latest software update for the Google Pixel lineup recently started rolling out to users.

The update includes a host of connectivity, camera, and stability improvements for the entire lineup, along with performance optimizations for the Google Pixel 5 and the Pixel 4a 5G.

When Google rolled out the first stable Android 11 release for its Pixel devices, some users noticed that the graphics benchmark numbers significantly declined following the update.

Since the Pixel 5 and the Pixel 4a 5G launched with Android 11 pre-installed, we had no way to verify if the phones also suffered a similar issue.

However, Anandtech noted that the Pixel 5 vastly underperformed similar devices featuring the Snapdragon 765G chip.

In the April 2021 update, the changelog mentions some “performance optimizations for certain graphics-intensive apps & games.” Andreas Proschofsky from Der Standard tested the GPU performance of the Pixel 5 following the update using 3DMark, and he found that the results are now 30-50% better than before.
