Pixel 9 Pro XL with Tensor G4 Benchmarked: 10% Faster than Pixel 8 Pro

Geekbench results reveal the Google Pixel 9 Pro XL and its Tensor G4 chip deliver a 10% performance boost compared to the Pixel 8 Pro and Tensor G3.

Google Pixel 9 Pro XL Benchmark Leaks: 16GB RAM and Beating Out its Predecessor, But...

Remember those Pixel 9 benchmark leaks yesterday? Well, hold onto your hats because the Pixel 9 Pro XL just showed up on Geekbench too, and it seems Google's going all out on RAM for the pricier model. We're talking a whopping 16GB, twice that of the standard Pixel 9.

The benchmarks themselves tell an interesting story. While the Pixel 9 seemed to lag behind the Pixel 8 in early tests, the Pixel 9 Pro XL actually manages to edge out the Pixel 8 Pro in both single and multi-core performance. It's not a massive difference, mind you, but a win's a win, right?

Here's the breakdown:

  • Pixel 9 Pro XL: Scored 1950 (single-core) and 4655 (multi-core).
  • Pixel 8 Pro: For comparison, the Tensor G3 in our database averages 1711 (single-core) and 4382 (multi-core).

That translates to roughly a 10% boost in CPU performance for the new Tensor G4 – better than nothing, but...

Here's the catch: Even with these improvements, the Tensor G4 still seems to be trailing behind Qualcomm's Snapdragon chips. For context, last year's Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is still posting slightly better numbers than what we're seeing from the Pixel 9 Pro XL.

This isn't exactly a surprise. Google's Tensor chips have always prioritized real-world performance and AI smarts over raw benchmark muscle. Die-hard Pixel fans will likely argue that these benchmarks don't tell the whole story, and they might have a point. We'll have to wait for the official release to see how the Pixel 9 Pro XL truly stacks up in everyday use.

One thing's for sure, though: with 16GB of RAM, Google's clearly aiming for a seriously smooth and powerful user experience. Whether that's enough to compete with the Snapdragons of the world remains to be seen.
