Google Tensor G4 benchmarks are super disappointing


The Google Pixel 9 is expected to launch later this year. The new handset will most likely be powered by the Google Tensor G4 chipset. Usually newer models indicate an upgrade in performance, but if recent benchmarks of the Tensor G4 on Geekbench are accurate, we could be in for some disappointment.

The listing on Geekbench is for the Pixel 9, which is presumably running the Tensor G4. According to the scores, it managed 1,653 points on single-core performance and 3,313 points on multi-core. For context, the Google Pixel 8, which runs on the Tensor G3, scored higher.

The Tensor G3 scored 1,549 on single-core, which is lower, but on the multi-core front, it managed 3,874 points which is more than the Tensor G4. Interestingly, this is not the first time we’ve seen benchmarks that suggests that the Tensor G4 could actually be slower than its predecessor.

We’re not sure why that is the case. It could be due to a lack of optimization on Google’s part, so we’ll have to wait for the actual phone to be released to get a better idea. That being said, we are more excited for the Tensor G5 which is due in 2025. The new chipset is said to be the first true custom chipset from Google as it will use custom cores. The current Tensor chipsets are said to be based on Samsung’s Exynos designs, which haven’t exactly been well-received over the years.
