Huawei is in the center of attention at the moment, and not only because of the conflicts between the company and the United States, but also because of their incredible Kirin processors.
Even though there are only a few smartphone manufacturers that produce their own chipsets, for instance, Apple and Samsung, Huawei is among them. The Chinese company can be a fierce competition to all the other smartphone creators and also chip manufacturers such as Qualcomm. Huawei is already tanked the world’s second-biggest smartphone producer, right above Apple and below Samsung.
The Chinese giant was the first to unveil a 7nm process based SoC, the Kirin 980, which is completely at the same level with the industry’s best Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and Apple’s A12 Bionic chipset. It now appears that Huawei is going to release a new 7nm Kirin processor on the market.
The new 7nm chip might be not other than the highly expected HiSilicon Kirin 810.
As stated in other earlier news, the HiSilicon Kirin 810 will feature a 2 x Cortex A76 cores and 6 x Cortex A55 cores based CPU architecture. The processor will also sport a new Cortex A76 custom large core coupled with MaliG-52 GPU.
The new Cortex A76 cores will boost the performance when needed, and the rest of the A55 cores will manage regular daily usage with less power consumption. According to a statement by He Gang, Huawei’s product line president, this could be based on the 7nm process node.
It will be an enormous criterion for chip manufacturers to release a 7nm mid-range processor to race with the upcoming HiSilicon Kirin 810, for all the flagship processors have incorporated the 7nm architecture.
As the reports say, the Nova 5 will be the first smartphone to have the new Kirin 810. The device has also been seen on many benchmark listings, announcing great specs on paper. Kirin 810 SOC on Huawei Nova 5 clock speed has also been confirmed. According to the reveal, the processor has reached the highest AI benchmark, even higher than the company’s flagship SOC Kirin 980. The SOC will sport 2 × 2.27 GHz Cortex-A76 and 6 x 1.88 GHz A55 cores with a specific NPU.
