According to recent reports, the proprietary Google Tensor chip on Google Pixel 6 Pro may be faster than Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. The report claims that this processor may become one of the fastest chips in the Android camp. Most ARM processors on smartphones currently use the “big.LITTLE” architecture, which consists of high-performance cores and low-power cores. The high-power cores are responsible for handling high-load scenarios such as games, and the low-power cores are responsible for handling low-load scenarios.
Both Samsung and Qualcomm’s flagship processors are a combination of this powerful and energy-efficient core, and they are designed with “1+3+4”, where “1” stands for a super-sized core. In contrast, the first Google Tensor chip of Google Pixel 6 Pro uses a “2+2+4” design. The first “2” stands for a super-sized core, which means it’s more than Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. A huge core.
We know that the super-large core is more powerful than the large core. Reports believe that the Google Tensor chip may be faster than the Snapdragon 888. What is puzzling, however, is that the single-core and multi-core scores of the Google Pixel 6 Pro lag behind those of the Snapdragon 888. Specifically, the Tensor exists. chip consists of two Cortex X1 super-large cores, two large cores, and four small cores, with frequencies of 2.8 GHz, 2.25 GHz, and 1.8 GHz, respectively.
In contrast, flagship processors like Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 and Snapdragon 888+ all have a Cortex X1 super core. However, the X1 super core of Snapdragon 888+ has a higher frequency and breaks through 3GHz. It is worth noting that the Google Tensor chip is based on Samsung’s 5nm process and will be launched by the Pixel 6 series. According to the news announced by Google, the Pixel 6 series will be released this fall. We will have to wait for the official launch to see how the Tensor chip will perform.
Google Pixel 6 Series Specifications
The Google Pixel 6 comes with a 6.4-inch FHD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate. However, the Google Pixel 6 Pro uses a 6.7-inch QHD+ panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. Both phones have three cameras on the back, but the Pixel 6 Pro has a telephoto lens with 4x zoom. According to reports, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will get five years of software updates. This includes four years of major Android updates. The company has officially confirmed that these flagship smartphones will be launched this fall. However, some reports claim they will launch in October. In terms of software, Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro get the best experience under the support of Android 12 dynamic Material You theme.
