I just ran a geekbench (Yeah I know its not connected to user experience, but..) and I think you are more than right. My signle core went down from 900 to 300-400 and multi core score went down to 2100... Huge perfrormance degradation. Waiting on 3rd benchmark to make sure these two are not flukes...
Edit:
Added photos so it can be more clear. This is almost Pixel 5 level (single core score is actually worse). Not sure if it is some power/battery saving thing and you can enable the 2 X1 cores to boost performance with gaming mode..
I tested now, seems ok after a bit of use and reboots...

Hello guys.

Today I updated my pixel 6 right on my phone over the wifi, It took a very long time to install, but after all installations and reboots, I started getting this error: cannot load android system. your data may be corrupt. Factory reset doesn't help.

anyone have the same issue?
I'm definitely getting this issue. I just got my Pixel 6 Pro today barely had the device an hour and I got this same error.

Here's my experience sideloading the December update on my Pixel 6 Pro [128Gb, unlocked, purchased from Google Store] since I'm dumb and can't wait a week for ota. :)

First I updated ADB and Android Studio.

adb version
beforeafter
Android Debug Bridge version 1.0.41
Version 31.0.1-7187441
Android Debug Bridge version 1.0.41
Version 31.0.3-7562133

For the sideload, I wasn't sure which image to choose, I guessed and got it wrong. Second guess was good. I don't know what the EMEA carriers option is, so I avoided it. After the failure I was careful NOT to reboot, but to continue on to the next sideload (Recovery did warn about the OS possibly not being able to boot after the failure). Successful sideload took less than 10 minutes.

adb reboot recovery
12.0.0 (SQ1D.211205.016.A1, Dec 2021) FAILED12.0.0 (SQ1D.211205.017, Dec 2021, US carriers) WORKED
adb sideload raven-ota-sq1d.211205.016.a1-81234517.zip
Total xfer: 1.81x
adb sideload raven-ota-sq1d.211205.017-5576891c.zip
Total xfer: 2.00x
Now send the package you want to apply
to the device with "adb sideload <filename>"...

Decided to run a Geekbench score when I saw this. This is on Kirisakura kernel. 1st one I've ran on this phone so nothing to compare it to. On December update.

I see P6P like the Ram on iOS...as a number, it is pretty low, but if you look only at the experience with the phone, you won't tell a difference between P6P and an expensive flagship phone...
Check the scores :
Code:
https://browser.geekbench.com/android-benchmarks

My benchmark scores are pretty high on single core, 1059 is the top score on the chart, multicore it is down at between Oneplus 9R(Snapdragon 870) and Samsung Galaxy Note 20 5g(Snapdragon 865+)
Only thing disappointing is the multicore performace but i am sure it will be better over time.

Has google pulled the update because I had it come up here in the UK but wasn't home so I've waited till I'm home and now it's saying I have the latest update which is November lol?
Can't tell, but if you say so it seems they pulled the update. I read some people are having connectivity issues.. I installed it, everything works fine

I'm still unsure which image to use. I'm in US and have P6 Pro unlocked that I use on Verizon.
