The Pixel 7 Pro could be a catastrophic loser to the new flagships. SoC Tensor 2 parameters data appeared
This fall, the Pixel 7 Pro smartphone will go on sale. It will compete with flagships that are based on Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and 8 Plus Gen 1 respectively, and will also be competing with flagships that are based upon Dimensity 9000 and Dimensity 9000 in the second half. New data suggests that there will be a significant performance gap between the new Google product and future flagships, at least according to new data.
The Pixel 7 Pro prototype provided some information about the configuration of this smartphone. Particularly, details about his SoC Tensor 2.
The 2+2+4 layout will be retained on the new platform. The junior cores will remain Cortex-A55. Early leaks suggested that two Cortex X1 cores would migrate to Tensor 2 using the current SoC. This means that only two middle nuclei are known. Current Tensors have a Cortex/A76 pair.
Given that the current platforms already use Cortex-X2, Cortex-A710, and Cortex-A510 cores the performance gap between the traditional Galaxy S23 Ultra (and the Pixel 7 Pro) should be significant. Although Tensor can be compared to Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 at this point, the performance difference between the two platforms should be significant. However, if Tensor 2 is considered as a whole, it is almost identical to the current platform. If you look at the same AnTuTu benchmark, the difference could increase by about two-thirds. We don’t yet know much about the GPU, but we can at least draw some conclusions.
The Pixel 7 Pro also gets a new Samsung S6E3HC4 Panel, which delivers 1000 cd/m 2 brightness, compared to 800 cd/m 2 on its Pixel 6 Pro.
The smartphone will also receive a new generation Cirrus Logic CS40L26 chips. We can expect further improvements in haptic feedback technology.
