The Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro chip, the Google Tensor G3would not be nothing exciting when compared to the next top of the line Qualcomm, lo Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. Of course, these are rumors, since neither of them is official. The “voice” is that of the insider Revegnus, who posted on Twitter compare the (alleged) performances detected by Geekbench for both.

The Tensor G3 of Pixel 8 and 8 Pro would barely exceed 3,800 points on Geekbench 5 in multi core, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 would go almost double with 6,600 points, but even in single core the comparison would be you learn:

  • Geekbench 5
    • single core:
      • Tensor G3: 1,186 points
      • Snapdragon 8 Gen 3: 1,700 points
    • multi-core:
      • Tensor G3: 3,809 points
      • Snapdragon 8 Gen 3: 6,600 points.

The peculiar 9-core architecture of Tensor G3 of the rumors, one for “pure” power and the remaining 8 for medium or low-demanding loads, it would not compare, according to the insider, with Qualcomm’s best proposal. Google has made it clear since the presentation of the first generation Tensor that it has approached the adventure of home-designed chips by trying to maximize advanced computing capabilities – machine learning and artificial intelligence – without chasing performance.

A theory that didn’t convince everyone there are those who wonder what prevents you from having a very powerful SoC and at the same time supported by a specific unit for advanced processing that Google obviously cares about a lot. Revegnus himself commented on the screenshot on the Tensor G3 with somewhat colorful tones at the address of Samsung and its foundries used by Google to produce its SoCs, according to him inadequate.

The first two generations of Tensor did not shine in terms of power (we wrote about it in the Pixel 7 reviews) and, assuming that Tensor G3 really did a spin on Geekbench 5, it seems that with the third generation there will be no change of pace .
