“Huawei is now the world’s first brand to have two 7nm-based mobile SoCs in its portfolio”
As announced earlier, Huawei has unveiled its latest chipset called the Kirin 810 at an event in China. The new SoC from the brand is its second processor to be manufactured using a 7nm fabrication processor, just like the Kirin 980 and Snapdragon 855. Notably, Huawei has become the world’s first company to have two 7nm-based mobile chipsets in its inventory. Launched today, Nova 5 is the first phone to utilise the brand’s new processor.
Talking about the specs, the Kirin 810 features two high-performance ARM Cortex-A76 cores with a clock speed of 2.27GHz and six ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.88GHz. The GPU onboard is the Mali-G52 MP5, which the brand says delivers 162 percent higher performance than the one present on the Kirin 710. Notably, the Mali-G52 MP6 is said to deliver up to 44 percent higher frame rates than the Adreno 618 found on the Snapdragon 730. The SoC is said to offer improved gaming experience with AI FM scheduling tech, GPU underlying driver updates, GPU load optimisation, and HD game effects optimisation.
Moving on to the other specs, the Kirin 810 comes with the brand’s newly developed DaVinci NPU (Neural Processing Unit), which is based on the Rubik’s Cube Quantitative Stereo Arithmetic Unit. This is capable of outperforming the Snapdragon 855 as well as the MediaTek Helio P90 when it comes to performing Ai-related tasks. Notably, the new NPU’s AI system is capable of predicting GPU overload and adjust the frequency as required. This can also help the device track frame rates, touch inputs changes and more in real time. Thanks to the NPU, the GPU, CPU, and memory are capable of running more efficiently for a longer period of time.
The Kirin 810 has a flagship-grade IVP + ISP, which has an upgraded pixel processing unit, better white balance algorithm, and is capable of reducing noise while processing RAW images. The company says that the new tech should deliver more details while capturing low-light photos. The brand has also loaded the new chipset with a powerful night vision algorithm for higher brightness and greater tolerance. As for the other features, the Kirin 810 has the brand’s HiAI 2.0 technology, AI video, AI gaming, AI US audio, and so on. There’s also support for dual card dual standby (dual VoLTE) and Kirin Gaming + Technology.
