A new benchmark has surfaced that gives us a better idea of the Pixel 7 Pro’s specs, specifically the CPU and GPU improvements in the Google Tensor G2 chip.
We all are eagerly waiting for the launch of Pixel 7 and 7 Pro which will be properly showcased on Google. 6 October Hardware Event, Google has already given us an early introduction to the phone at Google I/O, but there are still some details yet to be confirmed.
One of the big mysteries is the upcoming “Tensor G2” chip, which is slated to be the second generation of the Google Tensor chip made in collaboration with Samsung. After getting off to a strong start in the Pixel 6 series, which has lagged behind the competition over the past year, many are wondering where Google will take the Tensor line next.
Thanks to some expert digging by Android Developers Kuba Wojciechowski On Twitter, we now have strong evidence of what the Pixel 7 Pro and its Tensor G2 chip will bring to the table in terms of performance. First, though, we need to go through a disclaimer, as most new information is obtained from a new geekbench listing For Pixel 7 Pro.
It should be noted that it is quite easy to falsify the information reported by Geekbench. That said, there are some fine details – which our team also saw and confirmed – that point to this Pixel 7 Pro benchmark being legit. All the same, these descriptions should be taken with a grain of salt.
Digging into the details, it looks like Google hasn’t changed much about CPU cores used between last year’s Tensor and this year’s Tensor G2. The ones that can be pieced together are using the same combination of two Cortex-X1 cores, two Cortex-A76 cores, and four Cortex-A55 cores, albeit with slightly higher clock speeds. They slightly increased speed small . combined with 4nm die size It appears to have improved the Tensor G2 and Pixel 7 Pro multi-core benchmarks by about 10% when used.
While it might sound disappointing at first, it’s probably the best it can do, as raw performance isn’t what we’re looking for on the Pixel 7 to improve. as my colleague ben shun told, Pixel 7 and Tensor G2 need to outdo the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 which was done in terms of heat reduction and power efficiency. as because he guessesIt is possible – although far from confirmed – that this design could help achieve that level of efficiency.
However, where the Pixel 7 Pro’s Tensor G2 specs Doing Its GPU gets a significant boost, switching from the Mali-G78 to the Mali-G710. this new gpu ready to offer 20% better performance, 20% better power efficiency, and 35% better for the use of machine learning, is one of the major focuses of the Tensor line.
On this comment there are also signs That Google intends to include the next generation of its Tensor Processing Unit (TPU) – codenamed “Genereo” – in the Tensor G2, which should give the Pixel 7 series another boost. One last detail but confirmed by benchmarks is that the Pixel 7 Pro is likely to pack the same 12GB of RAM as the Pixel 6 Pro.
Overall, it looks like the Tensor G2 might not make the Pixel 7 Pro an incredibly exciting update in terms of specs for Pixel 6 series owners, but the iterative upgrades could make for a more consistent experience. For those who have been waiting on Google to “figure out” things with the new Tensor series of chips, this might just be what you were looking for.
