The Google Pixel 9 Pro XL is benchmarked with monstrous RAM but poor performance

This year, Google could have something new planned, as leaks suggest a Pixel 9 Pro XL will top out above the standard Google Pixel 9 and Pixel 9 Pro, and while you’d expect such a phone to be seriously powerful, an early benchmark outlines a mixed picture. image.

Spotted by X user @QaM_Section31 (through NotebookCheck), the Pixel 9 Pro XL is listed with 16GB of RAM on Geekbenchwhich is 4GB more than the 12GB in the Pixel 8 Pro, and double what you get in the Pixel 8.

That’s a promising amount and could help with on-device AI tasks. But unfortunately, the phone’s Tensor G4 chipset doesn’t look that promising as the device returned a single-core score of 1,950 and a multi-core result of 4,655.

For reference, NotebookCheck claims that the Tensor G3 in current Pixel models returns an average single-core score of 1,711 and an average multi-core result of 4,382, in a database of tests conducted by the site.
