In the I/O event organized by Google in the past period, some devices were presented as well as the latest software versions. Undoubtedly, the new Pixel 7 series attracted the most attention here. But today, some details about the Tensor 2 processor and its features seem to upset those who are waiting.
Tensor 2 features revealed: Outpacing the competition!
While many devices, including the Pixel 7 series, were unveiled at the I/O event, no features were actually shown. We even got a clearer picture when one of the prototypes was put up for sale on eBay. But only what awaits us from the design side has appeared. However, expectations for the Tensor 2 processor and its features have also increased.
Today, in one of the leaks about the device, it was seen that the new Tensor 2 uses the Cortex-A55 core. Of course, we were joined by a new architecture called ARMv9. However, since we won’t be able to see two manufacturing technologies in one chip, it is understood that the new chip will come with ARMv8 architecture. In other words, we understand that no improvement has been made to the technology used in the Pixel 6 series.
On the other hand, it is known that Tensor 2 will have a total of 8 cores in the form of 2+2+4. However, like the original Tensor, this chip uses two Cortex-X1 and four Cortex-A55 cores. Although the other 2 cores remain unclear, we can see A78s instead of Cortex-A76s in its predecessor.
Of course, even though mostly the same cores are used, it is possible to see some minor improvements and increases in clock speeds. But those expecting to see a huge increase in performance will be disappointed. Because the original Tensor processor was not the fastest when it was first released. For this reason, although a small increase in performance will save the day, it will lead to an increase in the gap between competitors.
Finally, let’s say that the leak also includes information about the screen that will be used on the device. The prototype that went on sale featured Samsung’s new panel, the S6E3HC4. This means the Pixel 6 Pro’s S6E3HC3 panel has been replaced. But the resolution of 3120×1440 pixels and the refresh rate of 120 Hz will remain the same.
