As for the Nexus S ICS ROMs, you might want to give this NexusBeam ICS ROM a try. Although I still haven’t found a kernel to work well with it(believe me, I tried all of them), the highlight of this ICS ROM is that it runs super-smooth without any overclocking. As far as ICS ROMs go, NexusBeam ICS ROM is the smoothest ROM I’ve tried so far with no lag when browsing the web.
The NexusBeam ROM does come with GPU rendering, which might be why and give this a go as everything is working on this ROM.
