Since the launch of the Pixel 6 series, which included Google’s own Tensor chipset, the tech giant has been working to enhance the capabilities of the Pixel smartphones’ newest CPU in preparation for the next generation of Pixel products. It is anticipated that the tech giant will reveal the Tensor 2 silicon in conjunction with the Pixel 7 series, which is scheduled to debut in the month of October.
According to a story published by 9to5Google, Samsung is reportedly also working on the creation of the third generation of Tensor chipsets. The tech company located in South Korea is now working closely with Google on the development and early testing of the third generation of Tensor processors.
According to the article, Google is putting the “Ripcurrent” development board, which is the third generation of Tensor, through its paces for testing. Earlier, it was rumoured that the Tensor 2 processor was being created under the codename “Cloudripper.”
According to the report, the Tensor chip of the third generation has the model number S5P9865, which is also consistent with the design of the Tensor chips of earlier generations. According to the article, the model number of the first Tensor chip was S5P9845, and the model number of the Tensor 2 chip is anticipated to be S5P9855. According to yet another allegation by GizmoChina, Samsung is working concurrently on the development of its own Exynos 1380 processors as well as those being developed by Google.
According to reports, Samsung is working on the Exynos 1380 chipset.
It is anticipated that the rumoured Exynos 1380 chipset will take the place of the Exynos 1280 CPU, which was first released in April of 2021. According to the source, the chipset known as Exynos 1380 is now undergoing development and testing under the codename product S5E8835.
Since the Exynos 1280 mobile platform is included in the Samsung Galaxy A53 smartphone, its anticipated successor, the Exynos 1280 mobile platform, will likely power the Samsung Galaxy A54. Despite this, Samsung has not disclosed any specifics on the creation of the new chipsets.
The cooperation between Google and Samsung is still active.
According to the source, Samsung’s 5nm node technique, which is used to manufacture its Exynos processors, served as the inspiration for the first Tensor chip. According to the research, the parallels may be seen by taking a more in-depth look at the Google chip. According to the source, it is expected that Google will launch the third generation of Google Tensor with the Pixel 8 series in the year 2023.
The report suggests that Samsung is one of the few possibilities that Google has at this time for the production of its Tensor processors. According to the study, however, if the business has partnerships with other chipmakers such as MediaTek and Qualcomm, it would be able to determine the maximum capabilities of its CPUs.
The initial Tensor chip’s connection performance was unable to compete with that of Qualcomm’s most recent chipset, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 mobile platform. In addition, the Google chip had several problems with overheating and was inefficient overall.
According to the article, the third generation of the Tensor chip will hopefully be able to narrow the gaps, and it is anticipated that it will deliver an experience that is comparable to that of the Snapdragon platforms.
