After lots of leaks and rumors, Google Tensor Processor finally launched with Google Pixel 6 Series. Google Tensor is the first Google custom Processor, especially for Google Devices. So, Google can control the hardware of Pixel devices like they control software for a seamless experience. Google Tensor Specification is quite good, it comes under the flagship category of processor directly competing with Apple A15 Bionic, Snapdragon 888, and Exynos 2100 as Google says. For better understanding, we will compare Google Tensor Antutu Score, Geekbench, and other Benchmark Score to other top processors.
So, in this article, we will Find Out Google Tensor Benchmark, Specification and feature and find out it is a Good flagship Processor or just an old Processor for Samsung with a new name.
Google Tensor Specification Sheet packed with a lot of new powerful hardware but there is some catch also. Like Google Tensor CPU is 2x 2.8 GHz – Cortex-X1, 2x 2.25 GHz – Cortex A76, 4x 1.8 GHz – Cortex A55.
There is Two powerful Coretex-X1 Core, Clocked at 2.8Ghz which is pretty good compared to Snapdragon 888 has only one Coretex-X1 Core. Google has chosen the older, dual Cortex-A76 core in place of the newer Cortex-A78 cores and four power-efficient A55.
This is an unusual setup but According to Phil Carmack, the vice president, and general manager of Google Silicon, the idea is to choreograph the interplay between the CPU, GPU, ISP, AI, and ML co-processors rather than completing a task by putting a high-performant core into action. Google is calling it “Heterogeneous computing,” where all co-processors come together to achieve a task. That gives it sustained performance over a longer period of time.
Google is using 20-core Mali G78 GPU that is 6 core more than Samsung Galaxy S21 ultra 14 Core GPU. Google Tensor Chip is 370% faster than Pixel 5 which has Adreno 620.
It has a new Google ISP that now supports a Multi-camera setup. It is also supported a variable refresh rate display (10 – 120Hz).
It has everything that a flagship Mobile Processor needs in 2021. Two Powerful Cortex- X1 performance core, Powerful 20 Core Mali-G78 GPU, better RAM management, Google Neural Core, and Machine Learning. Let’s Check Out the Google Tensor Benchmark score.
Google Tensor Antutu Score 755288. Google Tensor Antutu Score lower than the completion like Snapdragon 888 and A15 Bionic.
Google Tensor Geekbench Score for Single Core is 1048 and for Multi-core score is 2874.
