Google pixel 6 and 6 pro: latest update (need to know)

 Google Pixel 6 and 6 pro: latest update

The google pixel 6 and 6 pro are the most hyped pixel phones in recent years as they signal a return to true flagship devices it will be redesigned from the ground up to use a custom processor and feature a new camera.

one of the most intriguing questions for pixel 6 is, How this new tensor chip is gonna stack up against the competition?

 well, we have information about that but first, let's take a look at the live pictures of the pixel 6 and 6 pro google store in Chelsea now has both pixel 6 handsets on display you can't actually use them because google is yet to keep a formal launch event and the devices have yet to receive fcc certifications.

 But anyway the handset looked really good especially the pixel 6 pro in the beach color that said we finally have the configuration and benchmark of the tensor chip courtesy of XDA developers and it has some weird cluster of course than what everyone expected.

 Google is using 2x cortex x1 prime cores which is awesome these are the real high-performance cores that are capable of handling any intensive tasks interestingly both Qualcomm and Samsung have only used 1x cortex x1 core in their flagship chipsets so Google has an upper hand here.

 Now for the efficiency course google is using 4x cortex-a55 which is what both Qualcomm and Samsung are using as well where it gets weird is for the performance course google is using 2x cortex-a76 cores these cores were announced back in 2018. the competition uses the latest cortex a78 and there is a huge gap in performance between these cores it's hard to say why google may have chosen to go with 2x cortex a76 instead of 2x cortex a78 cores when there's very little apparent benefit in doing so a possible reason could be the two x1 prime cores that could offset less powerful a76 cores but we can't say that for sure but we have a benchmark to gorge how this chip fares with snapdragon 888.

 keep in mind that this is not a full-fledged benchmark test it's actually performed on a browser so it may not give the full potential capabilities of the chipset but should give us a basic idea the two browser tests our speedometer and jet stream too in the speedometer test which simulates adding and removing items from a simple to-do list app the pixel 6 pro managed to score 76.2 which is more than twice that of the pixel 5 but a little less than the snapdragon 888 variant of the galaxy s21 ultra and even the snapdragon 88 zenfone 8 which scored 86 and 80 respectively.

in the jet stream two tests which run many suites of smaller javascript and web assembly benchmarks the pixel 6 pro once again comes in not far behind the s21 ultra with a score of 95.4 this is again almost twice as fast as the pixel 5. these tests imply that the tensor chip will not be the fastest android chip of 2021 and that shouldn't be surprising because it's google's first attempt at custom silicon besides Google is focusing more on machine learning than raw power with tensor plus these tests are performed on a pre-release device which means google has plenty of time to optimize the chips.

 in any case, we're not too far away from the launch event as rumors predict October 19th as the day google finally let the cat out.
