The latest software update for the Google Pixel lineup has just started being made available to users. This update includes a host of camera connectivity and stability improvements for all products, along with optimizations for the Google Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G. Google enormously, according to a recent report.
When Google released the first stable Android 11 for Pixel devices, some users noticed a significant drop in graphics benchmark numbers after a follow-up update. HotHardware Based on testing, the Pixel 4 XL and Pixel 4a have been very popular for graphics performance.Because the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G launched with Android 11 pre-installed, we have no way of being able to verify if the phone is experiencing the same issue. Not anyway Anand Tech It was noted that the Pixel 5 was inferior to similar devices with the Snapdragon 765G chip.This led many to believe the Android 11 update was the culprit.
In the April 2021 update, the change notes mention some. “Optimization for graphics-intensive apps and games” Andreas Proschofsky from standard Pixel 5’s GPU performance was tested after an update using 3DMark and he found that the results are now 30-50% better than before, according to a recent tweet, his Pixel 5 scored around 2278/2260 for the OpenGL / Vulkan test in 3DMark Sling Shot Extreme Before the April Update After installing the update, the phone scored 3286/3083 in the same test, which is a much better improvement. Anand Tech It has also been confirmed that an update is available. “Basically it has doubled” Pixel 5 performance, we think the Pixel 4a 5G will receive a similar return, as this is also mentioned in the official change note.
At this time, we don’t know the exact cause of the GPU performance degradation, we’re not sure if there’s an issue with the Android 11 update that is causing this particular problem or if Google misplaces it somewhere. We’ll let you know as soon as we know it.
