Leaked benchmarks for Google’s upcoming Tensor G4 chip have surfaced, providing an early look at the performance of the Pixel 9 series smartphones. The Tensor G4 is expected to power the Pixel 9, Pixel 9 Pro, and Pixel 9 Pro XL models.

According to the leaked from Russian blog Rozetked, the Tensor G4 will feature a 1+3+4 core configuration, with a powerful Cortex-X4 prime core clocked at 3.1GHz, three Cortex-A720 middle cores running at 2.6GHz, and four Cortex-A520 little cores operating at 1.95GHz. This represents a departure from the previous Tensor chips, which had a 2+2+4 core layout for the original Tensor and Tensor G2, and a 1+4+4 configuration for the Tensor G3.

The benchmarks indicate that the Tensor G4 will deliver improved performance compared to its predecessors, with the Pixel 9 series scoring higher on AnTuTu benchmarks. The Pixel 9 (codenamed Tokay) reportedly scored 1,016,167 points, while the Pixel 9 Pro (Caiman) achieved 1,148,452 points, and the Pixel 9 Pro XL (Komodo) reached 1,176,410 points. In comparison, the Pixel 8 scored around 877,443 points.


However, it’s important to note that these benchmarks are from pre-release hardware and software, and performance may still improve with further optimizations before the official launch. Additionally, the Tensor G4 is expected to be manufactured using Samsung’s 4nm process and FOWLP (Fan-out Wafer Level Packaging) technology, which could improve heat management and power efficiency.

While the Tensor G4 benchmarks show promising performance gains, it remains to be seen how the new chip will compare to the competition from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon and Apple’s A-series chips. The Pixel 9 series is expected to be unveiled later this year, and more details about the Tensor G4 and its real-world performance will likely emerge as the launch approaches.
