Google can ship one of the fastest Android chipsets in the form of Tensor with his Pixel 6 smartphone, according to a report by XDA Developers. The report is based on leaked information about a Pixel 6 Pro drive from a source trusted by the website.
The source’s findings are reportedly corroborated by a Geekbench listing of the Pixel 6 Pro smartphone, according to which Google Tensioning chip It will have a “2 + 2 + 4” configuration, with two Cortex-X1 cores, two Cortex-A78 cores in the middle slot, and four Cortex-A55 cores. When we compare this to Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 and Samsung Exynos 2100 chipsets, there is one less A78 core and its place has been taken by a second X1 core.
While the Cortex-A78 and Cortex-X1 are similar in design, the X1 packs a better punch when it comes to performance, offering 23% more power than the A78, according to a report by 9to5Google. It gives reason to expect the Tensor chipset to be faster than Snapdragon 888, the reigning Android chipset. However, this is just a matter of speculation for now. Google will ship the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones with the Tensor chip.
Google could also be working on developing its own chipset for its upcoming Chrome OS laptops and tablets, according to a previous report from Nikkei Asia, based on input from three sources. “The new mobile CPUs and processors being developed by Google are based on the chip blueprints of Arm, the British chip company controlled by Softbank whose intellectual property is used in more than 90% of the world’s mobile devices,” says the report.
