Greg ran 3DMark Wild Life, Wild Life Extreme, and Wild Life Stress test to check the brand new Tensor chipset’s GPU capabilities. As revealed by the user, the Pixel 6 scored 6666 delivering 39 frames per second in the Wild Life test and 2028 at 12.8 frames per second in the Wild Life Extreme test. Meanwhile, in the Wild Life Stress test that runs for up to 20 minutes, the Tensor-backed Pixel phone manages to get the best loop score of 2129 and a low loop score of 1193 at 56 per cent stability.
Besides him, tipster Golden Reviewer (@Golden_Reviewer) also shared benchmark scores of the branded processors. The tipster took to Twitter to share an image of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and the Huawei Mate 40 Pro, showing the Wild Life Extreme scores. As per the images, the Galaxy smartphone with Snapdragon 888 chipset could be seen having an overall score of 1,494 points at 8.90 frames per second. On the other hand, the Exynos 2100 chipset version earned 1,793 points at 10.70 frames per second. While the Huawei smartphone with the Kirin 9000 chipset scored 2,004 points with 12 frames per second. As per the result, Google’s Tensor chip tops the chart in terms of graphical performance, however, one shouldn’t fall for the benchmark scores as it may vary with real-world performance.
Google Tensor Soc GPU performance is the best of any Android soc so far.
Now only question left is efficiency and sustained performance.
