In accordance to a report by Android Authority’s Kamila Wojciechowska, the Tensor G3 SoC will see important enhancements. In accordance to the report, the Tensor G3 may have 9 processor cores with a 1+4+4 structure. Final 12 months’s Tensor G2 has a 4+2+2 core structure. With the most recent chipset, Google is alleged to rebuild your complete CPU unit to use the 2022 ARMv9 core.
The brand new processor will reportedly have one Cortex-X3 core clocked at 3.00GHz, 4 Cortex-A715 cores clocked at 2.45GHz and 4 Cortex-A510 cores clocked at 2.15GHz. It may very well be geared up with an ARM Mali-G715 GPU with 10 cores and a frequency of 890 MHz. This can be a significant improve of the Mali-G710 Tensor G2 seven-core graphics unit.
The Tensor G3 will reportedly be the primary smartphone SoC to provide AV1 encoding capabilities. It will allow Samsung’s Multi-Operate Codec (MFC) to help 8K30 video decoding and encoding in H.264 and HEVC.
Moreover, the Tensor G3 is alleged to embody a brand new model of the TPU (Tensor Processing Unit) codenamed “Rio” working at 1.1 GHz. The following-gen TPU is anticipated to be a big improve over Tensor G2’s TPU Janeiro, which runs at 1.0 GHz.
The Tensor G3 can also be anticipated to characteristic a second-generation digital sign processor (DSP), or GXP, codenamed ‘Callisto’. It might additionally embody a brand new model of Samsung’s UFS controller to help UFS 4.0 storage.
Google could proceed to use the identical Exynos 5300 modem from the Tensor G2 within the new SoC. Though it’s mentioned that the Pixel 8 sequence will get a barely totally different variant.
The anticipated arrival of the Pixel 8 is months away. By way of specs, the Pixel 8 sequence may very well be very related to the Pixel 7 sequence, and they’re believed to help 12W wi-fi charging.
