According to recent rumors, the design team immediately loaded two Cortex-X1 cores into Whitechapel’s codenamed “Google Tensor SoC.” The move is interesting in light of the fact that it is currently the strongest core ARM offers to the mobile market. (The X2 only appeared on paper.) With the X1, the design company set out to maximize performance, subordinating everything to it.

All of this explains why only a single X1 core has been built into the various smartphone chips released in recent months. It looks like Google has vomited on the potential downsides, at least that’s what the dual Cortex-X1, whose clock speed isn’t low at 2.8 GHz, suggests.
Another interesting feature of the Tensor chip is that the X1s were “under” relatively old, A76 cores built by engineers. For now, one can only guess why Google just chose the units 2-3 years ago. It is conceivable that the engineers thus compensated for the heavy consumption and space requirements of the two X1 cores.
At the lowest level, Google can be said for sure, because the well-proven Cortex-A55 quadruped has been placed here. In addition to the CPU cores, the ARM Mali G78 GPU and the Samsung Exynos 5123 5G modem are listed in cooperation with the South Korean manufacturer.
How warm will it be?
It will be interesting to see what the configuration, which has been unique so far, will be good for in the market, for example with the Snapdragon 888. It is also interesting, and no less important, how well you will be able to control the consumption of Tensor with two X1 cores. Qualcomm (formerly Pixel’s processor supplier) once burned ugly with a similar development. Released in 2014, the Snapdragon 810 had an extremely high appetite. The unusually high dissipation was hard to keep in check with the relatively cramped casings, which is why Samsung ended up preferring not to build a phone on the processor.
According to an earlier announcement, Google is not expecting any problems. The company envisions that, thanks to its self-designed system chip, it may finally be competitive in the king of smartphones, an area that has entered exclusively competitors since its first Pixel smartphone in 2016, primarily Apple and Samsung (formerly Huawei).
