Google Pixel 6 Pro Tensor SoC Flexes Performance Muscle In New Benchmark Leak
Theory doesn't necessarily align with reality, unfortunately. The latest Google Pixel 6 Pro result on Geekbench has the chip trailing both the Samsung Exynos 2100 5G and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G in single- and multi-core performance. NotebookCheck compiled the user-submitted benchmarks and did the math, finding an average single-core score of 1070 for the Exynos and 1121 for the Snapdragon, while the submitted Pixel 6 Pro result scored 1034. That makes it 3% shy of the Samsung part and 8% under the Qualcomm chip.
Of course, these are anonymous results submitted to the Geekbench database, and while the listed hardware in the Geekbench result lines up with what we've read about the Tensor SoC's supposed hardware, it is possible to spoof that information. Even if the result is legitimate, we're surely looking at a device with early software and perhaps even detuned clock speeds. The Pixel 6 Pro is rumored to launch on October 27th, so we probably don't have long to wait to find out for ourselves how Tensor performs.
