A little more than two weeks remain before the presentation of the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, which Google has invested in the new Tensor G2 chipset. Back in June, we found out that we can’t wait for revelations in terms of performance, because the transition to the new Armv9 cores did not take place. In anticipation of the launch, Kuba enthusiast Wojciechowski, who previously revealed the camera configuration of the Pixel 7 series , made specifics again. Studying the source code, he found out that Tensor G2 uses the CPU cores of the original Tensor with slightly increased frequencies: a pair of Cortex-X1, known from Snapdragon 888, was overclocked from 2.8 to 2.85 GHz, two Cortex-A76 added 100 MHz each (up to 2.35 GHz), while the energy-efficient Cortex-A55 has not changed (up to 1.8 GHz).
On the other hand, the “corporation of good” has installed a new video core: instead of the Mali-G78, the Mali-G710 is now used, which are claimed to be about 20% faster and just as energy efficient. In addition, the chip’s manufacturing process has been improved from 5 to 4 nm, which should further reduce power consumption. As a result, Tensor G2 will be much slower than competitors in terms of pure CPU and GPU performance, but it has a chance to be a more stable chip, not prone to overheating and outstanding in terms of AI computing. We will find out more at the presentation on October 6.
