Leaked Tensor G2 specs reveal sluggish CPU performance
Google recently revealed that it will launch its latest Pixel 7 lineup alongside the highly anticipated Pixel Watch at its “Made by Google” event scheduled for October 6.
Following the news, the tech giant updated the Pixel 7 product page on its website and revealed the successor to the Tensor chip. The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro’s chip will be called the Tensor G2 and is expected to “bring even more useful and personalized features to photos, videos, security, and voice recognition” compared to the flagships of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. latest generation of Pixels. .
Until recently we didn’t know much else about the new chip, but thanks to the developer Kuba Wojciechowski, Going through Sam-Mobile, we now know that Tensor G2 uses the same CPU cores (two Cortex-X1, two Cortex-A76, and four Cortex-A55 cores) as the last generation Tensor chip. The information comes from a Pixel 7 Pro Geekbench listing.

The Tensor G2 is reportedly manufactured using Samsung’s 4nm process, with minor clock speed improvements to the X1 and A76 processor cores. “The A76 cluster has been boosted by 100 MHz, to 2.35 GHz, and the X1 cluster now runs 50 MHz faster than before, to 2.85 GHz,” Wojciechowski wrote. Minor advancements could result in about a 10% increase in multi-core performance, with negligible improvement in single-core performance, while prioritizing power efficiency.
Similarly, improvements on the GPU side are said to deliver 20% better gaming performance, 20% better power efficiency, and 35% better machine learning performance. According to Wojciechowski, the improvements can be attributed to the new Mali-G710 GPU, while the last generation Tensor used the Mali-G78 GPU. “Google runs a lot of its Google Camera pipeline on the GPU of its Tensor devices. This will certainly improve that significantly, while also improving the way new Pixels play,” Wojciechowski wrote.
Additionally, Tensor G2 will feature a new Tensor Processing Unit (TPU) codenamed “Janeiro”, to deliver “incredible new AI experiences”, alongside a new S5300 modem for better connectivity.
