Nvidia Shield Tablet Android 6.0 performance update

PCMARK

Last but not least we have PCMARK, another benchmark from Futuremark that this time looks at all round device performance rather than pure gaming performance like 3DMARK. This test is the only test where we actually see a where the performance of android 6.0 is slower than Android 5.1, though the performance difference is very minor.

The performance difference here is less than 1% between android 5.1 and 6.0, so the difference in score here could be easily explained by the variance between benchmarking runs rather than Android 6.0 being slower. Not all software is going to react well to an OS change, so it is unsurprising that we have seen at least one of our benchmarks deliver lower scores.
