The features of the Google Tensor G3 chipset are slowly starting to become clear. The processor to be used in Pixel 8 and 8 Pro may lag behind Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.
Being at the head of the Android ecosystem, Google has started preparations for the successor of Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, which were introduced in October last year. In this context, the Pixel 8 series, which will receive support from the Tensor G3 platform, is expected to be showcased later this year. Today, new information has been shared that will shed light on the performance of Tensor G3. The flagship processor may lag behind the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.
Tensor G3 features are starting to get clear
If we recall, we mentioned that the Tensor G3 chipset can be based on the Samsung Exynos 2300, developed in collaboration with AMD. However, new information indicates that Google will continue to use ARM-based Mali GPU cores instead of AMD. Accordingly, Tensor G3, one 3.30GHz Cortex-X3, four 2.60GHz Cortex-A715 and four Cortex-A510 nine-core cores. will present a configuration.
The source of the leak also clarified the production process of the Tensor G3. At this point, the new processor will be based on Samsung’s 4LPP process instead of the 4LPP+ technology expected to be used in Exynos 2400. The reason for this is not yet known. However, Google may be looking to cut costs.
In addition, Samsung 4LPP technology is one step behind compared to the TSMC N4 process used in Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. So the Google Tensor G3 can rival the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 compared to its flagship competition. However, let’s say that we have to wait a while to find out all this.
