Google preps smartphone processor called Tensor
Google has announced the development of a custom system-on-chip designed to drive Pixel 6 smartphones to be released in the autumn.

Google has been providing smartphones called Pixel since 2016 but has used Qualcomm application processors. Google has experience of designing processors having developed several generations of Tensor Processing Unit (TPU) to accelerate inference and training tasks in datacenters and Video Coding Unit to handle YouTube traffic.

Now it is entering the consumer space with what is reported to be a 5nm octacore ARM-architecture chip with a strong focus on artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Google did not reveal the Tensor processor's specifications.
