Huawei announced the Kirin 980, the world’s most powerful cell phone processor

Huawei formally introduced its new high-end chipset, which we will find in its top phones in the next few months. This is called Kirin 980, as we already know and is the first smartphone chipset made using the 7nm manufacturing process. The new Kirin 980 processor is the first in the market that uses it, ART's Cortex-A76 technology. It has four such cores, two at 2.6 GHz and two at 1.92 GHz, while the other four Cortex-A55 cores will run at 1.8 GHz . The Chipset will also integrate a Mali-G76 MP10 graphics chip at 720 Mhz which promises a high performance in 3D applications

Kirin 970 was the first Huawei chip to benefit from a NPU (Neural Processing Unit) running Al algorithms, and Kirin 980 is the first to benefit from two NPU units . Compared to competition, the Kirin 980 delivers more than double the AI ​​performance by processing image capture algorithms at a rate of 4,500 images per minute, while Snapdragon 845 can process only 2,371 and Apple A11 only 1,458 With a LTE Cat 21 modem capable of speeds of up to 1.4 Gbps download and 200 Mbps upload and a WiFi module that can reach speeds of 1,732 Mbps, it is quite clear that Huawei is targeting users who need top performance with their new processor

Kirin 980 - Performance and Power Consumption

According to Huawei, 7nm manufacturing can deliver better performance by up to 75% in applications that use the CPU with a reduced power consumption of 58% over the previous generation . Also, the new Mali-G76 GPU could improve performance in 3D applications by 46% with a reduced power consumption of 178% compared to the Mali-G72 MP12 last year. Last but not least, this is the first mobile chip with support for LPDDR4X RAM at 2,133 MHz.

Huawei wanted to compare this chipset with the Snapdragon 845 launched in the spring of this year, which is found in most of the top on market. This seems to provide a performance benefit of between 20 and 22% in addition to the Qualcomm chip, with a 32% lower power consumption

Kirin 980 - ISP

Of course, photography is an important aspect of phones Huawei, and the new Kirin 980 features two image processors (ISPs). They are 46% faster than the Kirin 970 and provide lower energy consumption by 23%. Kirin 980 (7nm) Kirin 970 (10nm) Kirin 980 (7nm)

Kirin 980 - release date

The Kirin 980 presentation came with a surprise. The company announced the date on which the "20" series of phones Mate 20 will be released, the first to benefit from the performance guaranteed by this chipset. It seems that the new Huawei top phones will be unveiled on Oct. 16, and we will find more details before the end of the year about Honor Magic 2, the second model based on Kirin 980.
