The Google Tensor G2 soc of the Pixel 7 phones is a 5nm community, not a 4nm one. This is what Google itself says. This means that soc does not use one of the latest production processes available for soc smartphones.
Google says to Android The Tensor G2 architecture contains “5 nm technology”. The search giant doesn’t want to specify which node soc will produce. So far, Google hasn’t said anything about the process used, but it was clear that Google would like to get the Tensor G2 using Samsung’s 4nm process.
Last year, Google said it chose ARM Cortex A76 cores instead of A78 cores, as they would perform better at 5nm. This year, the G2 has A78 cores, which, according to Google itself, will run less at 5nm than the A76 cores. Anandtech already said last year That the argument seemed wrong and that Cortex A78 cores in other socs at 5nm seem to perform much better with lower power consumption.
Like its predecessor, the Tensor G2 has two Cortex X1 cores, running at a slightly higher clock speed. There are also A78 cores at 2.35 GHz and four economical Cortex A55 cores at 1.8 GHz. The GPU is ARM Mali G710. There is soc in Pixel 7 phones. Tweaker was published last week Pixel 7 hardware preview A review of phones will be published soon. It also discusses the performance of the new soc.
