The Tensor was Google’s first in-house chip, made in collaboration with Samsung. Instead of utilizing one huge core, three medium cores, and 4 small cores for the SoC like Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chips and Samsung’s Exynos chips, Google went for 2 cores for dealing with foreground processing duties, two medium cores, and 4 small cores.
Alleged Pixel 7 Pro benchmark scores
This will be attributed to 2 issues: the G2 is seemingly primarily based on the 4nm course of, which ought to make it extra highly effective and environment friendly than the first-gen chip, and the X1 cluster and A76 cores now run at larger clock speeds.
Also, as was the case with the primary proprietary chip, Google seems to be prioritizing power-efficient efficiency and responsiveness, and would not appear involved with smashing benchmark information.
Tensor G2 rocks a new GPU and modem
The Tensor G2 allegedly additionally has a higher TPU codenamed “Jaineiro”, presumably for brand spanking new AI experiences. Other than that, Google seems to have made enhancements to the video encode/decode block and ISP.
The machine could pack a new Samsung-made S5300 modem and hopefully, this may assist with connectivity woes skilled by Pixel 6 customers.
All in all, despite the fact that the Tensor G2 is extremely unlikely to be the quickest cell SoC round, Google’s method will presumably guarantee that it’s going to not warmth up and as has been mentioned earlier than, most trendy smartphones are loads quick already, and there may be extra to the smartphone expertise than uncooked CPU efficiency and different components comparable to software program optimization, which Google is sweet at, additionally play a enormous half.
