What is Google Tensor?

Do you already know the new Google tensor, if your answer is no, we invite you to stay with us to show you this new exclusive production of the company that has been with us for many years.

Google in recent years has launched itself into many new markets, in some it has been very successful and in others not so much, but now the technology giant is betting on the chip market with the creation of Google Tensor.

What is Google Tensor?


Google tensor is the official launch in the processor market by this great company, giving an unexpected leap, promising an improvement in intelligence and being the best optimized processor that has a Google Pixel.

The Google Tensor processor incorporates 3 types of cores, 4 Cortex-A55 at 1.8 GHz for light activities, 2 Cortex-A76 at 2.25 GHz for processing medium activities of our day to day and 2 Cortex-X1 at 2.8 GHz for heavy activities.

The cores of this processor can work at the same time and each one in its assigned activities, thus giving a better performance when performing any activity or performing several activities at the same time.

These processors are incorporated into the new generation of Google cell phones, being these the Google Pixel 6 and Google Pixel 6 Pro, most likely they will also be incorporated in the new generations to come.

The incorporation of their own processors to their devices will allow them to get the best performance in all necessary aspects, as they will be made specifically for the needs of the cell phones they will produce in the future.

As we know, Google is not the first company to implement its own processors in its devices, but what characterizes this one is the optimization of processes as none has done before.

Better performance does not always imply more power, if we go to the specifications of the Google Tensor we will realize that it is not the eighth wonder of the world, what this processor does have is greater performance in processes thanks to the distribution of these.

Why did Google decide to create its own processor?

The idea of creating Google tensor was born as a result of the need of the company to have a processor to which you can get all the benefits without affecting the performance of the same and couple it to the needs of the software.

In this way, the baking processes for the creation of a processor with these features began, this was not a short or simple process, but in the end it gave results, and some much better than expected.

It is well known that the photographic section is something very important in today’s devices, because of this in the design process this section was not left behind, also obtaining an improvement in the photography section.

All this thanks to the inclusion of artificial intelligence within the Google Tensor, we will have the opportunity to capture photographs with a higher quality than average, with the ability to delete objects without external programs.

Also within this section it allows us to capture photos while recording, all this without presenting any problem of slowing down the device or generating inconveniences of closing applications.

Creating their own hardware allows Google to adapt it to what they need according to the device to which it is implemented, this is a great advance since they should not be limited to the capabilities of the processors of the companies that are responsible for creating them.

Having full freedom to develop the innovative ideas they believe necessary for future devices and adapting the Google Tensor to those needs without the limitation of the prefabricated processors.

What are the advantages of Google Tensor?

From a generalized point of view Google Tensor has infinite possibilities, this is because according to the need Google can adapt the processor, for a lower cost than if you were looking for the same result with prefabricated processors.

It is possible to do it this way not only because they are the manufacturers themselves but also because, although they use cores of the same power as the other processors, they are fully adapted to the needs of the software.

Thus obtaining better performance in exchange for the same power, and not only that, but also having the cores dedicated to specific activities making Google Tensor performance even better.

Knowing that this is the first appearance in a commercial device of Google tensor, we could say that this is just the first step for a great success in the creation of devices with proprietary processors.

Thus giving a very wide margin of advantage over other device creators, still having the possibility of continuing to implement new tools in the software without having any limitation by the hardware.

Tools like the instant voice and text translator already implemented in the Google Pixel 6 and Google Pixel 6 Pro devices are just a sample of what can be done when you have this opportunity to create your own processor.

Even incorporating text translator captured with the camera instantly, are just a sample of the capabilities of this great processor that Google has launched showing that it always advances with its own technologies.

Conclusions about Google Tensor

The Google Tensor Processor is created by the need to have the ability to incorporate new technologies to the software without having to worry about the limitations assigned to the hardware.

It has the property that for the same power as other commercial processors, it obtains great performance thanks to the built-in artificial intelligence, which allows it to use the cores in specific activities at the same time.

With this processor opens the doors for the endless possibilities that Google has to continue developing new implements and tools such as those demonstrated in the last launch of its Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 pro devices.
