Pixel 8 Tensor G3 chip leaked and benchmarked

Recent leaks have revealed all concerning the Tensor G3 chip that powers the approaching Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Professional.

We’re only a day or so out from Google’s massive Pixel 8 launch occasion, however we already know just about every little thing there may be to learn about its new telephones. After numerous design and spec reveals – often from Google itself – we now know all concerning the Tensor G3 chip that can energy the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Professional.

Tech YouTuber M. Brandon Lee has obtained photos of the Gadget Information HW {hardware} specs app seemingly working on a Pixel 8 Professional telephone.

These specs – if correct – reveal a brand new strategy for Google’s new chip, shifting to a 1+4+4 core format slightly than the two+2+4 format of the 2 earlier Pixel generations.

The one highly effective Cortex-X3 core runs to 2.91 GHz, whereas there are 4 Cortex-A715 cores working at 2.37 GHz and 4 low-performance Cortex-A510 cores at 1.7 GHz. The GPU is a Mali-G715.

Upgrades all spherical, as you would possibly count on. However simply how a lot of an improve.

Separate to this leak, the primary Geekbench 6 scores for the Pixel have emerged. They reveal a single-core rating of 1760 and a multi-core rating of 4442.

Anybody who’s been taking note of our personal Geekbench scores for this 12 months’s flagship telephones will know that that is strong, however not class-leading. The Sony Xperia 1 V with its Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 scored 1982 single-core and 5202 multi-core in the identical take a look at, and we’re not too far off seeing the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.

Maybe extra importantly, this represents actual progress from the Pixel 7 class. You’ll be able to count on Google to concentrate on the AI and machine studying capabilities of the Pixel 8’s Tensor G3 at tomorrow’s occasion, so ‘fairly a bit sooner than earlier than’ is arguably all it wanted to hit in CPU and GPU phrases.
