For the first time, the search engine giant said earlier this week that its newest Pixel series would be powered by a processor created in-house. ‚ÄúTensor builds on our two decades of computing experience, and it’s our largest breakthrough in Pixel to date,‚ÄĚ says Sundar Pichai, the company’s CEO.

‚ÄĚ He went on to say that these cores will have “whole new functionality, as well as enhancements to current ones,” as well as the “most cutting-edge AI and machine learning” technology.

According to a NikkeiAsia article, while Google has not specified who would manufacture its new Tensor chips, sources close to the subject have indicated that Samsung will be its manufacturing partner, and the new chips will be fabricated using a 5nm fabrication technique. In other words, the chip will be built using the same sophisticated process as Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 SoC.

We’ve known for a long that Google is developing on its own chipset, codenamed “Whitechapel.” However, the Tensor cores have now been revealed, and the announcement of a 5nm processor suggests that it will be more power-efficient and perform better than the previous Pixel 5 series. The Tensor chip, in particular, has been in development for four years and is ‚Äúspecifically for Pixels.‚ÄĚ
