We now have the first detailed specs of Google's upcoming Tensor G3 chipset that will premiere in the Pixel 8 series in the Fall. The chipset will be built on Samsung Foundry's new 4nm (4LPP) process and will feature a nine-core CPU, and a ten-core GPU.
On the CPU side, the Tensor G3 will pack a single Cortex-X3 clocked up to 3GHz, four Cortex-A715 that go up to 2.45GHz, and four Cortex-A510 cores clocked up to 2.15GHz. In contrast, the Tensor G2 has two Cortex-X1 cores, two Cortex-A78s, and four Cortex-A55s - a total of eight cores, one fewer than the G3.
On the GPU side, the Tensor G3 uses ARM's newest GPU design - ten Immortalis-G715s clocked up to 890MHz. The new hardware is capable of hardware-accelerated ray tracing, and in combination with Samsung MFC (Multi-Format Codec) encoding and decoding 8K up to 30fps in both h.264 and HEVC format.
Here's where Google's upcoming Tensor G3 can shed some light on Samsung's expected return to making high-end mobile chips for its phones in the Exynos 2400. The Exynos 2400 could use a similar nine-core or even ten-core CPU to the G3 but bring an upgraded Xclipse GPU, based on the AMD RDNA2 with four times the cores. The GPU advancements would allow the Exynos 2400 to add 4K 120fps encode and decode, as well as 8K at 30fps.
The Exynos 2400 could also one-up the Tensor G3 with UFS 4.0 storage support, LPDDR5X RAM, and a faster modem.
Back to the Tensor G3. The chipset is seemingly already in testing per this Geekbench 5 test score. It confirms the 4 + 4 + 1 CPU configuration.
Google has poor cooling and the graphics don't reach 60 fps in Genshin like on the same iPhone, but in everything else it's not bad, does just having a dragon make the phone not a shit phone? no OnePlus 10 Pro can be called a shit phone too...
Lol at this stupid google fan. We're hearing today that S24 ultra will be Snapdragon only, indicating Exynos is still garbage, which means same for g3.
