What you need to know
- New information about Google’s upcoming Tensor G2 chipset has leaked online.
- The leak comes from a purported benchmark result running on a Pixel 7 Pro test unit.
- The leak indicates improvements to the GPU rather than the CPU from its predecessor.
Early this month, Google Official joke The next generation chipset that will power the upcoming Pixel 7 series. However, the teaser was about the chipset title called Tensor G2.
New information about the alleged Tensor G2 (codename gs201) has surfaced before the launch of the Pixel 7, courtesy of Kuba Wojciechowski. According to tipster, the new chipsets will use the same CPU as the original Tensor.
An alleged internal spec leak has been found from an alleged Pixel 7 Pro test unit. The device, which conducted a Geekbench test, revealed more details about the next Tensor chip made by Google. Wojciechowski also breaks down important information about the new chip based on benchmark data in a series of tweets.
Google’s upcoming Tensor G2 uses the same CPU cores as the first generation Tensor GPU, the Mali-G710 GPU – details below 👇 🧵 pic.twitter.com/xbZVFhMc1lSeptember 16, 2022
Benchmark testing reveals the Tensor G2 CPU system, which includes two Core X1, two Cortex A76, and four Cortex A55 cores as last year. While the architecture appears largely identical, Wojciechowski says there is a big bump in the frequencies of these cores. For example, the Cortex X1 frequency is increased from 50MHz to 2.85GHz. Similarly, the A76 cores experienced a bump from 100MHz to 2.35GHz.
Geekbench test also shows a slight increase of up to 10% in multi-core performance. Wojciechowski notes that given the performance of the Cortex X1 cores, which performed well in original motorNext-generation chipsets are supposed to handle better. This also includes credit for the improved 4LPE process, which provides “more thermal headroom and efficiency for operation at higher frequencies”.
Meanwhile, on the GPU front, Google is replacing the Mali-G78 with the Mali-G710 on the new Tensor G2. This means we can expect major improvements, including a 20% performance improvement, 20% power reduction, and a 35% increase in machine learning tasks, which Pixel devices love. Pixel 6 Pro highly dependent on.
Moreover, says Wojciechowski, the GPU boost on Tensor translates into gains in Google Camera, as the performance of cameras in Tensor-powered phones primarily depends on the GPU.
While the analysis here is based entirely on the purported Geekbench test, the guide points out that plagiarism can still be done. Therefore, it is better to take all this information with caution.
In turn, the mentor also notes that the standardized test is still fairly legitimate. That’s because the kernel architecture featured in the test looked unusual, or it could be a semi-custom architecture built specifically for Pixel 7. Likewise, Build ID TD1A.220609.002 also appears to be unique.
Other potential improvements expected on the Tensor G2 include improvements to the TPU, codenamed Jaineiro. This is followed by improvements in video encoding/decoding.
Finally, the Tensor G2 is still manufactured by Samsung under the supervision of Google; last details He also noted that 3G is already in the works, again a Samsung product.
As the Korean tech giant supposedly manufactures the Tensor G2 chip, we can see improvements to Google’s custom Exynos ISP. Besides, it also brings a new S5300 modem to the SoC.
with the made by google Fall event is just around the corner, where we expect to see Google’s next competitor to Best Android PhonesIt will be interesting to see the alleged promises that the new Tensor G2 brings to the table.
