It’s a long way from Gen 2

The Tensor G3 single-chip system, which underlies the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro smartphones, has passed 3DMark Wild Life tests, which demonstrates not only the performance of the SoC but also the level of throttling.

In the test, the older and younger models scored 8572 and 8216 points, respectively. After 20 testing cycles, performance dropped by almost half. The stability indicator was in the same order of 58.7% and 52.5%.

The new SoC is reportedly produced using a 4 nm process technology, but not the most modern one. This is a Samsung 4LPP, although it could have been 4LPP+, which would have made the platform more energy-efficient. However, the stability indicator is also very low due to the lack of any efficient cooling system in Google smartphones. 

As for GPU performance itself, we can recall that last year’s Pixel scored about 6500 points in the same test, about the same as the Exynos 2200 and Dimensity 8200 show. The same Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 already scores 7500–8000 points and higher, depending on the smartphone, and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 shows a result of at least about 10,000 points.  

That is, the new Google platform is noticeably faster than last year’s, but overall this is the level of Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 in good performance.
