Google announced Pixel's updated smartphone duet and Pixel Watch smart hour the previous day. The latter are working on the Samsung Exynos processor, while the smartphone has re-established its own Google Tensor processor, but is already in the second generation. The main advantage of Tensor G2 over the first-generation chip has been to work more effectively with the challenges based on artificial intelligence algorithms.
The hardware changes are largely evolutionary: the new one received the same two Arm Cortex X1, two production Cortex-A78, as well as a quart of cost-effective Cortex-A55 that was present in last year ' s processor. The tactical frequency of some of the kernels has increased, but otherwise it is the same set used in Pixel 6. In addition, there is a new graphic subsystem: Arm Mali-G78 has been replaced by a more powerful Mali-G710.
Google is likely to focus on the part of the platform that is being developed by the company itself, the Tensor Cores, which is responsible for working with the AI algorithms. The company has not yet provided all the details, but has noted that the Tensor G2 system has received "a new generation's own TPU", which works 60 per cent faster and 20 per cent more efficiently in selected tasks.
The evolution of the processor is not always bad, because journalists of the TechCrunch resource are sure, because Google engineers now know more about its features, and considering that new phones offer up to 72 hours of autonomous operation, this kind of compromise is acceptable. Like the Titan M2 security chip, which has always turned into Pixel 7 of last year's models.
