The TPU has eight CPU cores, 20 GPU cores and is able to process Google's most intricate AI and machine learning (ML) models by having additional dedicated cores to perform ML, security and image processing tasks as well as to better manage the phone's power consumption. Google claims that the CPU performance will be 80% faster and GPU performance will be 370% faster compared to its predecessor — the Pixel 5. This will translate into improved mobile camera capabilities, better speech recognition capability and a better user experience.
