The maximum peak performance of a CPU is a critical metric to consider when comparing different CPU designs. However, it’s not the only number that matters. Other important metrics include sustained performance and performance per watt. In this article, I delve into the performance per watt of the Google Tensor G3 system on a chip (SoC) that’s currently used in Pixel 8 phones and will likely be used in future Google phones as well.

What is the Google Tensor G3?
