Google Tensor technically not as powerful as new Exynos and Snapdragon chips: report21
Although Google has yet to share technical specifications, the company has made it clear that its focus is on using artificial intelligence and machine learning to offer personalized experiences rather than prioritizing computing resources.
Various reports have indicated that the Google Tensor will be manufactured by Samsung using its 5nm manufacturing process. The South Korean company was also involved in the development process.
Galaxy Club reports that the Tensor is internally referred to as the Exynos 9855. The outlet backs this up by asserting that Exynos 9855's codename is Whitechapel.
This chip first popped up last year and it will allegedly slot between the Exynos 2100, which is known by the part number Exynos 9840, and the forthcoming AMD-based Exynos 2200 that's is being developed under the name Exynos 9925. The Exynos 2200 will underpin next year's Galaxy S22 range.
Google Tensor chip vs Snapdragon
That might only be true initially since Google is more into AI and ML than hardware specs. Thus, it's likely that Tensor's performance will improve over time. The company has specifically promised improvements to camera and speech recognition.
