This week on the podcast, we begin things by chatting about the recent GPU benchmarks that have surfaced for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. With the two phones being out in the wild for a few weeks at this point, it is nice to see where some of the speedy performance comes from and knowing the GPU is insanely powerful in the Pixel 6 give us hope that games and other graphic-intensive tasks will continue getting better on these phones as developers learn to take more advantage of that power. It is during this time that we also talk a bit about PUBG New State on both Chromebooks and lower-end Android phones. It is pretty awesome!
For the second half, we jump into the recent revelations that Google won’t be building a new Pixelbook anytime soon. We now know that we shouldn’t expect a new Google-made Chromebook at any point this year or next, and that’s a bummer. Sure, we know Tensor for Chromebooks is coming, but still see no reason Google shouldn’t have planned one more Intel-powered Pixelbook to bridge the gap.
