New benchmark scores have surfaced on the GFXBench site showing the Nexus 5 is ready to jump into the fray against the top performing smartphones in terms of graphics capability. Currently only two scores have been posted, one for the T-Rex HD offscreen test and one for the Egypt HD offscreen test. These tests are designed to to determine how the device will perform under a heavy load, with the T-Rex test being the more intensive of the two. The score for the Nexus 5 on the T-Rex test was 23.1 frames per second. On the less intensive Egypt HD test, the unit scored 59.2 frames per second.
The scores put the Nexus 5 on par with the PowerVR chipped iPhone 5S and either on par with or slightly edging out leading Android units. The Nexus 5 is shown as being equipped with the Adreno 330 gpu for the tests. Hopefully it will not be long before we can get some results for the onscreen tests.
