Google Nexus 5 Benchmarks

The Nexus 5 will be upon us very soon, but in the meantime, we must drool over leaked images and leaked benchmarks. Today’s droolfest is brought to you by GFXBench’s website. Several devices went through some gaming tests, and as you can see from the graph above, the Nexus 5 did very well. It still could not outdo the iPhone 5s, but coming dead even with it is surely an accomplishment.

The Nexus 5 is likely to rock the Adreno 330 GPU under its hood, which is right on tap with iPhone’s GPU. The T-Rex 2.7 test that the devices took relies heavily on the graphical load mobile games put on devices. We all know that was a big selling point in the iPhone 5s, and the fact that the Nexus 5 can handle the same load is definitely pleasing to anyone who is heavy into mobile gaming. Let us know what you guys think about these benchmark results.

    wow how this is looking so good for the next nexus! im a super proud galaxy nexus user and am sad that i might pass it up for the bigger screen, expandable battery/storage of the note 3!

    Sorry but this doesn’t make any sense because the iPhone 5s GPU is not “right on tap” with an Adreno 330 GPU in the Qualcomm 800 chips like the one in the LG G2. The iPhone still uses an Imagination Technologies chip but it’s newer generation than any Apple device this far.

    If these benchmarks are to be believed: first it’s only one test from the benchmark, and second it must mean the Adreno 330 in the Nexus 5 is clocked higher. (Or maybe it’s using another chip altogether?).

    Looking at the test via the GFXBench website, sadly the Nexus 5 is out performed by many devices in this test, including the iPhone 5s. However, the S4 blows both of them away.

      Several things about that benchmark (taking any with a grain of salt)
      is that the S4 would have to be seriously overclocked to do that,
      secondly, since the Nexus 5 is not even released yet, it could be a
      pre-release that is not tuned yet, and also could even be clocked lower
      than on release. There are too many variables not covered by that list
      you have. Since the S4 is a Snapdragon 600, and the nexus 5 is a Snapdragon 800, even though both may have the same Adreno GPU, I would have to question that benchmark at face value.

      That’s not the SGS4 variants that we are using right now. That’s I9506 variant released in Korea which has Snapdragon 800. So It makes sense that it can outperform current i9505 variants.

    Iphone 5s beats every other phone by a large margin in every other benchmark category. You really need to take a look at the rest of the source article before you think the S4 can even come close to the iphone 5s.

      the iPhone 5S is a best of a processor for sure, just a shame they don’t bit the bullet and put a screen inside it big enough to use. You iPhone users probably get used to them, but whenever i’ve tried typing on the iPhone, I feel like I’m using my old G1.
      So I personally can’t wait for the Nexus 5 to arrive. It’s overall usability that blows away the iPhone.
