The Leaked Benchmarks of Google’s Pixel 9 Series Reveal Tensor G4 Details

Earlier this month, the Russian source Rozetked provided the first live images of the upcoming Google Pixel 9 smartphones. Now, the same source has shared core architecture details and preliminary benchmarks of the Tensor G4 chips that will power these devices.

The leak indicates that the Tensor G4 employs a 1+3+4 core configuration, with the powerful Cortex-X4 as the primary core, three mid-range Cortex-A720 cores, and four energy-efficient Cortex-A520 cores.

This architectural layout is a departure from the original Tensor and G2’s 2+2+4 setup and the Tensor G3’s 1+4+4 configuration. Notably, Google seems to be returning to an octa-core CPU layout from the nine-core design used in the Tensor G3.

Tensor Tensor G2 Tensor G3 Tensor G4
2x Cortex-X1 (2.8 GHz) 2x Cortex-X1 (2.85 GHz) 1x Cortex-X3 (2.91 GHz) 1x Cortex-X4 (3.1 GHz)
2x Cortex-A76 (2.25 GHz) 2x Cortex-A78 (2.35 GHz) 4x Cortex-A715 (2.37 GHz) 3x Cortex-A720 (2.6 GHz)
4x Cortex-A55 (1.8 GHz) 4x Cortex-A55 (1.8 GHz) 4x Cortex-A510 (1.7 GHz) 4x Cortex-A520 (1.95 GHz)

In terms of benchmarks, all Pixel 9 devices surpassed the 1 million point mark on AnTuTu. Specifically, the base Pixel 9 scored 1,016,167 points, the Pixel 9 Pro scored 1,148,452 points, and the Pixel 9 Pro XL scored 1,176,410 points.

Compared to the vanilla Pixel 8’s AnTuTu score of approximately 900,000 points, the performance gain on the Pixel 9 is not substantial. However, it’s important to note that these are early benchmarks on devices running pre-release software, and further software optimization and tuning are expected to enhance the phone’s overall performance.
