Pixel C Garners Impressive Benchmarks Ahead of Rumored Launch this Week

December 8, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

When Google unveiled its new Pixel C device alongside Nexus, we believed it to be what Android users have been anticipating heavily for; a powerful Android experience on a bigger screen.

The specifications of the device supported  all those anticipations. Now, there’s yet another revelation that lifts expectations to further heights.

Google’s apparent convertible-Chromebook was spotted this week on two benchmarking sites. Obviously that initially calls for the suspicion that it’s heading out soon, but more soothing to the ears is its benchmarking result, which certainly drags it to a top spot within its segment.


On Geekbench’s benchmarking site, the Pixel C raked up a score of 4395 when all of its CPU cores were put into action. That’s more than impressive, considering that there is only Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge that stands above that with multi-cores.

It’s also the best in the tablet segment, with HTC Nexus 9 and Nvidia Shield devices not even pecking the 4000 mark with its multi-core performance score.

While those two packed the Nvidia Tegra K1 Processor, Google’s Pixel C sports the new Nvidia Tegra X1 processor, which comes coupled with a RAM of 3 GB.

The Nexus 9 still beats Pixel C on single core performance. While Pixel C had a score of 1395 in Geekbench 3, HTC Nexus picked up a score of 1885, which also makes it the best single-core performing device ahead of Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Pixel C was also listed benchmarked on GFXBench 4.0.

Both these listing have now nearly confirmed the imminent release of Pixel C, which was earlier rumored to be released during the holiday season.

An earlier report from Dutch site Tweakers (via 9to5Google) also suggested that the device will be made available through Play Store from December 8.
