After revealing its new flagship phone, Google offered the press more details about its new unique Tensor processor for the Google Pixel 6. The Mountain View California company noted that this technology was included for the first time in a Google device.
On its official site, Google detailed that the processor named Tensor can offer entirely new capabilities to users. To achieve this, Google Research engineers employed state-of-the-art software combined with machine learning, or better known as machine learning, in the hardware.
In addition, by designing the Google Tensor together, the engineers could get a sense of where new machine learning models are headed rather than where they are today. This allowed them to build a platform combining artificial intelligence and machine learning, ideally employed in the Pixel 6, their new generation of smartphones.
One of the main features of the new processor is the motion mode called Face Unblur, which also improved voice commands for videos; on top of that, the chip includes the HDRnet application to videos. “Google Tensor allows us to push the boundaries of smartphone usability by taking it to a new level,” the release reads.
The Pixel 6 will translate in real-time videos and messages faster thanks to its Live Translate feature with the new processor. All executions will be able to perform without consuming much power from the device, an essential aspect of the performance of the mobile.
Google’s System on a Chip has eight 5 nm cores divided into large, medium and small cores regarding the technical characteristics. The central cores of ARM Cortex-X1 type run at 2.8 GHz, approaching its most significant competitor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 that integrates the Samsung Galaxy S21.
The SoC also features two Cortex A76 cores running at 2.25 GHz and another four 1.8 GHz A55 cores (the small bits of the processor). In terms of graphics, the Google Tensor features a Mali-G78 graphics core, a graphics chip that will also be available in other flagship Android phones.
According to Google engineers, the Google Tensor chip will make the Pixel 6 run 80% faster than its predecessor, the Google Pixel 5. In terms of security, the processor has an additional layer that works with the Titan M2 chip in the phone to protect against malware and ransomware.
Today, Google is betting on a new processor model to compete with other brands such as Apple or Samsung with its flagship phone. These companies have invested time and money to develop their processors and stop depending on other companies.
