A new benchmark has emerged that gives us a better idea of the Pixel 7 Pro’s specs, particularly the CPU and GPU improvements in the Google Tensor G2 chip.
We are all very much anticipating the launch of the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, as they will be properly showcased in Google October 6 Hardware Event. Google already gave us an early introduction to phones, back at Google I/O, but there are still a few details that haven’t been confirmed yet.
One of the biggest puzzles has been the upcoming “Tensor G2” chip, which is slated to be the second generation of the Google Tensor chip created in collaboration with Samsung. After making a solid debut in the Pixel 6 series, although it has since fallen behind the competition over the past year, many have been wondering where Google will take the Tensor streak next.
Thanks to some expert digging by an Android developer Kuba Wojciechowski On Twitter, we now have solid proof of what the Pixel 7 Pro and the Tensor G2 chip will bring to the table, in terms of performance. First, though, we need to make a bit of a disclaimer, as a lot of new information is getting from a new source. Geekbench menu For Pixel 7 Pro.
It should be noted that it is fairly easy to falsify the information reported by Geekbench. However, there are quite a few finer details – also considered and confirmed by our team – that suggest this Pixel 7 Pro benchmark is legit. However, these details should be taken with caution.
Digging into the details, it seems Google hasn’t changed much about the CPU cores used between last year’s Tensor and this year’s Tensor G2. Of what can be bundled together, it uses the same set of two Cortex-X1 cores, two Cortex-A76 cores, and four Cortex-A55 cores, albeit at slightly higher clock speeds. Those slightly enhanced speeds combined with smaller die size 4nm Their use appears to improve the multi-core Tensor G2 and Pixel 7 Pro test by about 10%.
While this may sound disappointing at first, this is probably the best, as the initial performance isn’t what we’re looking to improve on the Pixel 7. As my colleague Chun Bin pointedThe Pixel 7 and Tensor G2 need to keep up with the work the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 has done in terms of heat reduction and power efficiency. as such Because he speculatesit is possible – although not confirmed – that this design could help achieve this level of efficiency.
However, where the Pixel 7 Pro’s Tensor G2 specs an act Getting a big boost in its GPU, which switches from Mali-G78 to Mali-G710. This new GPU set to display 20% better performance, 20% better energy efficiency, and even 35% better use of machine learning, which is one of the main areas of the Tensor line.
On that note, There are also signs Google intends to include a next-generation Tensor Processing Unit (TPU) – codenamed “Janeiro” – in the Tensor G2, which is supposed to provide another boost to the Pixel 7 series. One of the final details confirmed by the benchmark is that the Pixel 7 Pro will likely have It has 12 GB of RAM just like 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 frequent upgrades could provide a more consistent experience. For those waiting on Google to “fix the problem” with the nascent Tensor chipset series, this might be exactly what you’ve been looking for.
