Google is anticipated to launch the Pixel 8 sequence in October, and the telephones shall be powered by a Tensor G3 chipset based mostly on the yet-to-be-released Exynos 2400. And whereas all eyes are on the 2023 flagships, a report on X – previously Twitter – shed some gentle on the chipset that may energy the 2024 Google Pixel 9 telephones.
The Tensor G4 shall be fairly just like the G3 if all of the rumors are right – the CPU will use one Cortex-X4 unit, A720 and A520 cores, whereas the GPU shall be Immortalis-G715. The SoC shall be manufactured by Samsung Foundry, because the cope with TSMC fell aside because of “low quantity”.
The Tensor G4 is reportedly contracted to be constructed on the 4LPP+ course of, which is a step farther from the 4LPP node for the Tensor G3. What distinction the Plus will convey is but to be revealed, as Samsung hasn’t formally launched particulars on its new 4nm course of that’s completely different than the present 4 nm EUV know-how.
Particulars are fairly scarce, and the entire story is wrapped in a cloud of hypothesis, supplied that the foundry and the systems-on-chip are unannounced. Nonetheless, the Google dedication could possibly be learn as a testomony that Samsung Foundry lastly discovered a option to manufacture chipsets, together with Exynos platforms, that aren’t overheating, turning into extra engaging to cellphone firms and prospects.
