Google Nexus 6P Review: A Magnificent Marshallow Powered Flagship

Performance: GPU

To get a feel for how graphics performance on the Nexus 6P compares to other devices, we used GFXBench, which has been one of our standard graphics performance benchmarks for a while now. In order to ensure V-sync and resolution aren’t limiting factors, we compare off-screen test results. We also used Futuremark's 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited benchmark.

In terms of graphics performance, the Nexus 6P is a solid option. Though it didn't lead the pack, it's at the top end of the charts. The potent GPU + CPU combo pushes quite a few pixels, and that massive 5.7-inch display makes it look good all the while.

It's a similar story here. The Nexus 6P is in the upper echelon in terms of performance, which is mighty impressive considering that it checks in at a few hundred dollars less than some of its primary rivals.
