Pixel 5 ‘doubles’ GPU performance on Snapdragon 765G w/ April security patch

Emotional, Burning, Unlimited Tuned Laboratory

As we reported yesterday, Google’s April patch for the Pixel 5 includes some minor fixes as well as a big update for gamers. Now, it’s been confirmed that the patch “essentially doubles” GPU performance on the Pixel 5.

You might have missed it last year when the phone launched, but it was reported that the Pixel 5’s GPU performance lagged well behind other phones using the same Snapdragon 765G chipset. That doesn’t make a whole lot of a difference in day-to-day tasks, but it was a restriction that those playing even slightly demanding mobile games certainly felt.
