One of the early leaks of the Tensor G2 – the new chipset that powers the Pixel 7 series – revealed that the chip would retain the A76, X1, as well as the A55 processor cores (in two-plus-four configuration) in the same way as the first. Developer Kuba Wojciechowski has now given more credence to the claim by studying the details of an Geekbench results and other clues.
The same Cortex-X1 core before (note that 3396 decimal is 0.xD44 hexadecimal)
It is believed that the Tensor G2 will reportedly be produced using Samsung’s process of 4nm (the first chip was directly from the Samsung 5nm Foundries) that has led to moderate increases in the CPU clock speed. The two Cortex-X1 processors have had their caps raised by 50MHz, bringing them to 2.85GHz (though this will likely be achieved using only the one X1 active) The two Cortex-A76 cores have seen a larger 100MHz boost to 2.35GHz according to Geekbench test results.
Yes yes, the G2 still uses A76 cores even though the cores were two years older when the original Tensor was launched (they were replaced by the A77 as well as the A78). This isn’t even including the brand new ARMv9 cores, which include replacements for the three cores: A715, X3 and an updated A510. The transition to ARMv9 was too big of a change.
Wojciechowski believes that clock speed boosts could result around 10 percent (or roughly) increase in multi-core performance, but barely any improvement for single-core. However, the developer states that this might be good for the phone because Geekbench only evaluates high performance, not lasting performance. In the past, ARM’s designs have focused on delivering more performance, but at the expense of a higher temperature and power draw and has caused phone makers a lot of trouble.
To begin, the Mali G78 MP20 GPU is reportedly going to be replaced by that of the Mali-G710 which was seen in the Dimensity 9000, for instance. ARM says that their upgraded GPU is 20 percent faster and 20 percent more efficient than the G78 for rendering graphics, and 35% more effective in processing machine-learning tasks. The exact improvement will be contingent on the core number and frequency, therefore it’s still to be seen.
Although this Tensor chips is named in honor of its predecessor, the Tensor Processing Unit (TPU) it is the GPU does most in the bulk of work within the Google Camera processing pipeline. The TPU is believed to be a second-generation part, which is referred to as Jaineiro. The Exynos-based ISP could be undergoing a revamp. In general, the new G2 chip is likely to bring tangible improvements in tasks related to AI and image processing.
Additionally, the chipset could feature a brand-new S5300 5G modem by Samsung which will be built on NR 16. 16. It promises improved efficiency, stability and performance in comparison to the older Release 15 components.
There are still a few CPU-intensive tasks but for the things that Google takes pride in and the ones that Google is concerned about – Pixels are known for their cameras The new chip will be a significant improvement.
What’s next it is believed that the Tensor 3 is already in development and there is a rumor that it will be built using Samsung’s brand new 3nm Gate-All Around process.
In the end, it seems that it’s the sole component in the Tensor G2 that hasn’t changed in any way.
