GOOGLE TENSOR G3: THE PIXEL 9 CHIP WILL HAVE A SECRET WEAPON FOR CREATORS

If the first rumors about the performance of Google ‘s Tensor G3 chip have disappointed fans who are more attentive to raw power, however the new Mountain View smartphones will arrive first in a crucial aspect of the user experience.

According to what was discovered by Mishaal Rahman, in fact, last year’s leaks have finally been confirmed: the next generation Google Tensor G3 chip will be the first SoC for smartphones to support AV1 hardware encoding and will be able to do so up to maximum resolution 4K for 60 frames per second.

Not a bad record if we consider that currently on the market the most that has been offered so far has been decoding, especially on the top of the range of the bitten apple, while on the Android market the main chips to offer it are the most famous current-gen SoCs, among including the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, the Dimensity 9300 and the Exynos 2400 .

This first step towards accelerated encoding on the Google Tensor G3 could offer interesting ideas for content creators and industry professionals, although at a software level the support is still immature and not even the Pixel Camera app supports this potential.

In addition to this, we remember that the company focuses heavily on AI for the Tensor G3 , an aspect that did not fail to surprise already in the predecessors of the next chip from the big G.
