Last year, Samsung manufactured Google’s first Tensor chip on its 5nm node process. The chipset was used in the Pixel 6 series and offered some decent performance. Now a new report suggests the South Korean company is working on Google’s next generation Tensor as well as its own Exynos 1380 SoC.
As per a report by GalaxyClub, Samsung is testing a next-gen Tensor chipset. The chipset with model number S5P9865 is said to be the third-generation Google Tensor chipset that will power the Pixel 8 series. The development board of the chipset has the code name ‘Ripcurrent’ and the chip itself is codenamed ‘Zuma’. The first-generation Tensor SoC also had a similar model number (S5P9845), so it is assumed that the mentioned chipset is a Samsung-manufactured Tensor Soc.
Reports have suggested that Tensor 2 would be developed on a developer board called “Cloudripper,” which means the newly discovered model number (S5P9865) would likely be the third generation of Tensor SoC.
The rumored Exynos 1380 SoC, on the contrary, is expected to be the successor to Exynos 1280 SoC which was launched in April this year. As per the report, the Exynos 1280 Soc is being developed and tested under the product code S5E8835. The Exynos 1280 is found on the Galaxy A53, so we can expect its successor to power Samsung Galaxy A54.
Samsung is yet to confirm any details about the development of new SoCs. The information above is based on speculations, so we suggest you take it with a pinch of salt. We hope to learn more details in the coming days. Gizmochina
