First Fully Custom Google Tensor Chip Not Until 2025

First Fully Custom Google Tensor Chip Not Until 2025

  • by Ozhan Ozkan

According to a recent report, Google is set to shift from Samsung to TSMC for the production of its Pixel smartphone chipsets. The codenamed "Laguna," expected to be marketed as the Tensor G5, will power Google's Pixel smartphones in 2025.

The Tensor G5 chip will be built on TSMC's 3-nanometer platform, utilizing InFO (Integrated Fan-Out) packaging to reduce thickness. This chipset will mark Google's first fully customized chip. In the initial stages of the Tensor line, Samsung provided various components such as graphical and image processors, as well as communication pieces. However, as the Tensor line has evolved, Google has gradually transitioned to using more of its in-house designed components. The Tensor G5, set for 2025, will be entirely Google's own design, which is a first for the company.

Limited information is available at the moment regarding the Tensor G5. However, fans of Google Pixel devices may view this transition positively, as it enhances the phones' "Googley" essence. Critics may raise concerns about the performance issues experienced by Tensor-powered Pixel devices following updates. However, it's worth noting that most phones encounter software or hardware component issues at some point, and Google may be addressing these early on to ensure smoother performance in the future.

As more information becomes available about Google's plans for the Tensor G5 and upcoming Pixel devices, further updates will be provided.
