Pixel 8 might be slower than Nothing Phone 2

The Pixel 8 series’ specifications have recently been leaked online ahead of Google’s anticipated announcement later this year. The Tensor G3 chipset from Google is anticipated to power the smartphones that will succeed the Pixel 7 series. The processor that will power the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro is expected to have 10 GPU cores and 9 Arm cores, though the company hasn’t yet revealed its exact specifications. While this is going on, a benchmark of a device using the Tensor G3 recently appeared online, providing us with a look at its performance.

A Geekbench listing for a device with the description “Google Factory builds on Ripcurrent” was recently posted by tipster Revegnus (Twitter: @Tech_Reve). The listing was published on the benchmarking website on April 11, so it is not current. According to the listing, the device scored 1,186 on the single-core test and 3,809 on the multi-core test using Geekbench 5.5.1. The processor’s specifications also line up with those of the purported Tensor G3, which has 9 cores arranged in a 1+4+4 configuration and was recently leaked.

The Tensor G3 chip, however, may not provide significantly better performance than the Tensor G2 SoC, according to the Geekbench listing. The forthcoming Nothing Phone 2 actually recently received 1,253 and 3,833 points on Geekbench. This suggests that the processor powering Google’s upcoming flagship smartphones will be slower than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, and Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipsets.

The recently released mid-range Poco F5 smartphone has scores of 1,121 and 3,656 in the single-core and multi-core tests on Geekbench, indicating that the Tensor G3 is actually only marginally faster than it.

It is important to note, though, that Pixel smartphones with Tensor chipsets have never provided a performance on par with similarly priced flagship Android phones. Instead, these Tensor chips are built to provide strong AI capabilities, handling many machine learning tasks locally, allowing them to operate without an internet connection.

The Tensor G3 on the Pixel 8 series of smartphones will have nine CPU cores with a 1+4+4 layout, according to a recent leak. Four 2.45GHz Cortex-A715 cores, four 2.15GHz Cortex-A510 cores, and one 3.00GHz Cortex-X3 core will all be included in the chipset. It is currently unknown, however, how much of a performance improvement the new chipset will bring over the Tensor G2 SoC that powers the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro from last year.
