Chrono Cross - ~120fps
Final Fantasy IX - ~235fps
Vagrant Story - ~160fps
Final Fantasy VII - ~215fps
Legend of Dragoon - ~165fps
Dragon Warrior VII - ~195fps
I have a bone stock, non rooted, not overclocked Galaxy Nexus. The device is nearly one year old. At this point in time it's considered mid-spec, possibly high-mid, but nowhere near the 'top end device' we keep hearing about.
Thanks for this feedback, just I do not play any of these games to can compare
Your Galaxy Nexus is a very good device, you right when you says "today" is not the top-end like S3 (but this is veryhigh-end
) but I think is not middle range, maybe high-mid or just high.

On my HTC One-X (qaud-core Tegra3), every possible compatible game is above full speed in Software
BTW full speed means 60fps for an NTSC game, and 50fps for a PAL (european) game
BUT it's different with openGL, some of my games require frameskip to be full speed. On a stock kernel, on the HTC One-X, a game like Tekken 3 will be around 32 fps in openGL without frameskip (it's around 42 with a custom ROM and custom kernel!). But frameskip is not choppy, so I can reach full speed and games remain smooth. Games like Final Fantasy are around 100fps with no frameskip in openGL, 2D games can reach 150fps or above in openGL too
My favourite game and testing reference is Tekken 3 because it's one of the very slowest games (diablo is slow too, or MGS), I reach between 60 and 70 fps in software or around 42 in openGL with no frameskip. Mine is a PAL version, so full speed is 50fps
On the dual core HTC Sensation Tekken 3 is around 34 fps in openGL with no frameskip (and can reach full speed and remain smooth with frameskip)
In my opinion, 1ghz CPU + a custom rom and kernel + a screen that is NOT HD720p is the minimum to enjoy openGL in 3D games
But software mode remains good on WVGA screens while it's really a mess of pixels on HD screens, so I never use software anymore.
Yes, I know, what I don't know is the software mode is called "old version", I was thinking with "old version" he's mind old version of FPse :S
Only one thing, you need frameskip with your quad-core? are you serious? so with a "normal" phone I never will can use opengl mode...
What level of frameskip do you use? for me >35 is choppy in software and opengl mode.
Anybody can try any of these games without frameskip and make a little feedback please?
