A new benchmark has surfaced that gives us a better idea of the Pixel 7 Pro’s specs, specifically the CPU and GPU improvements on the Google Tensor G2 chip.
We’re all waiting for the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro to be unveiled at Google proper. October 6 hardware event. Google already gave us a preview of the phones at Google I/O, but a few details have yet to be confirmed.
One of the biggest secrets was the upcoming “Tensor G2” chip, which will be the second generation of the Google Tensor chip created in collaboration with Samsung. After a strong debut with the Pixel 6 series, which has since fallen behind the competition last year, many are wondering where Google will take the Tensor line next.
Thanks to some expert digging by an Android developer Cuba Wojciechowski We now have strong evidence on Twitter of what the Pixel 7 Pro and its Tensor G2 chip will bring to the table in terms of performance. First, we have to give up a bit because most of the new information comes from new information. Geekbench list For Pixel 7 Pro.
It should be noted that it is quite easy to falsify the information provided by Geekbench. However, there are a few subtle details that our team has also reviewed and confirmed that indicate the Pixel 7 Pro benchmark is legit. At the same time, these details should be taken with a grain of salt.
Looking into the details, it looks like Google hasn’t changed much about the CPU cores used between last year’s Tensor and this year’s Tensor G2. Because it can be clustered together, it uses the same combination of two Cortex-X1 cores, two Cortex-A76 cores, and four Cortex-A55 cores, albeit with a slightly higher clock speed. Slightly increased speeds are combined with smaller ones 4nm die size used Tensor G2 and Pixel 7 Pro seem to improve the multi-core benchmark by about 10%.
While this may seem disappointing at first glance, it might be for the best, as raw performance isn’t what we’re looking for to improve on the Pixel 7. Like my colleague Ben Schoon pointed out, the Pixel 7 and Tensor G2 should catch up to what the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 does in terms of heat reduction and power efficiency. whom Because he is speculatingit is possible – although not confirmed – that this design could help realize this level of efficiency.
However, where the Pixel 7 Pro’s Tensor G2 features do Get a significant boost in GPU moving from Mali-G78 to Mali-G710. This is the new GPU is going to offer 20% better performance, 20% better energy efficiency and even 35% better for machine learning usage are the main focus of the Tensor line.
On that note, there are also signs Google intends to include the next generation Tensor Processing Unit (TPU), codenamed “Janeiro”, in the Tensor G2, which should give the Pixel 7 series another boost. One of the last details that has been tentatively confirmed is that the Pixel 7 Pro will have 12 GB of RAM, just like the Pixel 6 Pro.
Overall, the Tensor G2 might not make the Pixel 7 Pro an incredibly exciting upgrade in terms of specs for owners of the Pixel 6 series, but the iterative improvements could make for a more consistent experience. For those of you who have been waiting on Google to “figure it out” with Tensor chips just starting out, this might be what you’re looking for.
