Google’s Tensor chip – Made by Samsung?


TL:DR Google’s Tensor chip will be mass-produced by Samsung, with some orders likely moving to TSMC.

Google did not disclose detailed information at its announcement yesterday, other than briefly mentioning the benefits of Tensor when running in Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. However, it was rumored last year that Samsung and Google were working on a unique 8-core ARM processor. The Korean conglomerate is likely to mass-produce this silicon chip, according to the newest development. We didn’t realize that the same article suggests that TSMC may handle some of the orders.

Given the continued scarcity, TSMC may end up mass-producing chips only for Apple. According to Daily, Samsung has partnered with Google to mass-produce the bespoke Tensor processor for Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. An earlier rumor said that the chip would employ Samsung’s 5nm technology, so we should put to rest any conjecture that it will use the next-generation 4nm node for the time being.

According to other reports, TSMC placed equipment at a 3nm plant as a flood-affected site. Sleepy Kuma, a tipster, has supplied some fascinating information below, even though it was not mentioned in the initial story. “Some shipments may go to TSMC, but now that Apple AP mass manufacturing has begun, the emphasis will be on Samsung Electronics.”

Given the persistent chip shortage, it was previously claimed that TSMC had prioritised Apple for order fulfilment. The business is planned to sell approximately 100 million A15 Bionic units. It does not appear that the Taiwanese semiconductor powerhouse will collaborate with Google this time. Samsung may not only mass-produce Google’s Tensor, but it may also integrate inflexible OLED screens in the Pixel 6, which is less expensive.

Rigid OLED displays are less expensive than flexible OLED displays; thus, Google may be seeking to make the Pixel 6 more affordable. However, it’s unclear whether the Se will utilize the same display or flexible panels as the larger, more expensive Pixel 6 Pro.

It is an ARM-based chip (as are all contemporary SoCs from Qualcomm, MediaTek, Samsung, and even Apple) manufactured using Samsung’s 5 nm technology. It will most likely have slightly lesser performance than, say, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. Still, in reality, Google’s engineers have concentrated their attention on a few key areas so that a comparison would be pointless.

Tensor should shine in any application that uses artificial intelligence or machine learning techniques. For example, “computational photography,” which refers to all of the computation smartphones perform on a shot right after it is taken to improve its appearance.

Google’s new technology, then, will be able to apply real-time HDR to every frame of a 4K video at 30 frames per second.

Regardless, we’re confident that additional information will be released in the following weeks. If you want to stay up to date, we’ve included a complete summary of what to expect from Google’s Tensor processor, dubbed Whitechapel by some, so give your thoughts in the comments if you believe Samsung will do an excellent job for the advertising behemoth.
