Android Authority notes that the Tensor G3 demanding duties might be dealt with by a cluster of 4 Cortex A715 cores with clock pace of two.45 GHz. This can be a enormous enchancment over the 2 Cortex-A78 core deployed by the Tensor G2, each by way of uncooked firepower — which is now double in magnitude — and the upper clock frequency.
The variety of effectivity cores is identical at 4, however the older Cortex-A55 cores have been swapped in favor of the brand new Cortex-A510 cores. Arm’s new low-end cores additionally get a pace increase, going up from the Cortex-A55’s peak frequency of 1.8GHz to 2.15GHz on the Cortex-A510 contained in the Tensor G3 package deal. Google can also be bumping issues round within the graphics division.
The upcoming Tensor silicon employs the Mali-G715 graphics engine, which has 10 GPU cores ticking at a better 890Mhz frequency. Help for broader video encoding and decoding capabilities (8K video at 30fps and 4K video at 60fps) may also arrive on the Pixel 8 collection telephones courtesy of the Tensor G3 SoC.
Google’s Tensor chips, regardless of delivering a easy efficiency on its Pixel telephones, have remained laggards when in comparison with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chips and Apple’s personal A-series silicon for iPhones. It might be fascinating to see whether or not the Tensor G3 would lastly enable the Pixel 8 collection telephones to meet up with the massive hitters from Samsung and Apple this 12 months.
