Vivo has a new premium mid-range offering in the market, the V11. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 AIE octa-core CPU, an Adreno 512 GPU, and 6GB RAM. If you’re wondering how this device performs in certain games, here’s your answer.
For the purposes of testing, we’re gonna be using an app called GameBench for Android. If you’ve never heard of it before, it’s a tool that measures frame rates, battery temperature, and CPU/GPU utilization. All this data allows us to evaluate a device’s gaming performance.

For the Vivo V11, we played five different games for an average of 15 minutes each: Rules Of Survival, PUBG Mobile, Tekken 7, Asphalt 9, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang.
First up is Rules Of Survival. Graphics are set to Excellent with High FPS Mode activated.
We got 45 FPS (average) which is not bad for a mid-range device. However, the stability is only 47% with a variability index of +-2.98 FPS, which means frequent frame drops are experienced. We can actually see this in the erratic graph shown below.
When it comes to battery temperature, we’re getting a relatively cool 39°C.
Next is PUBG Mobile with graphics set to HD + High Frame Rate + Realistic Style.
For this game, we’re getting a decent 30 FPS. It’s lower compared to Rules Of Survival but it has a 98% FPS Stability with a variability index of +-0.68 FPS, meaning we’re getting consistent frame rates during gamely as evident in the more linear graph below.
As for battery temperature, we’re getting a read of 40°C.
Next up is Tekken 7.
For this game, we’re getting a smoother 52 FPS and 62% FPS Stability with a variability index of +- 3.59 FPS. These are still good numbers despite the high-quality graphics, as we’re almost reaching the sweet spot of 60FPS.
For the battery temperature, we’re getting a read of 38°C.
Next, we have Asphalt 9 with visual settings set to High Quality.
We’re getting 29 FPS with 86% stability with a variability index of +-2.94 FPS. This is about at the minimum “playable” threshold of 30FPS, where gameplay is marginally smooth. The great thing about this test though, is that we aren’t experiencing a lot of frame drops.
For the battery temperature, we’re getting a cooler 35°C.
Last but not the least is Mobile Legends: Bang Bang with graphics set to High and all effects activated.
We’re getting 30 FPS and a solid 96% stability with a variability index of +-1.31 FPS. Same as Asphalt 9, the frame rate is just about playable, and we don’t really experience much frame drops if any.
As for the battery temperature, we’re getting a max read of 36°C.
Here’s a table of the results:[table “898” not found /]
Looking at numbers, we can say that the Vivo V11 can certainly game and can deliver big Android titles at decent frame rates and relatively cool temperatures.
