Benchmark ranks the best Androids for gaming, Nexus 6 and Note 4 take the lead
Futuremark, the makers of the popular cross-platform graphics benchmark set 3D Mark, has listed the top 100 Android gaming performers for December, and the results are nothing short of totally expected.
The first three slots are occupied by NVIDIA's blazing K1 chipset, and then it's all Snapdragon 805, 801 and Exynos until the eye can see. The first time a MediaTek chipset (in the Meizu MX4) pops, is at the late 84th place in the top 100 ranking, while Huawei's Kirin silicon is not a contender there, as it might not even be optimized to run said graphics benchmark.
When it comes to individual phones, Nexus 6 takes the lead, followed by some other Snapdragon 805-equipped handsets, like the Galaxy S5 4G+, Motorola Droid Turbo, and the various iterations of the Galaxy Note 4/Note Edge phablets. Interestingly enough, two Snapdragon 801 devices - the Oppo Find 7a and Asus PadFone S - wiggle their way in the top 10, too.
