Huawei’s latest mid-range Octa-Core Kirin 810 SoC based on the 7nm process with Mali-G52 GPU & DaVinci NPU outperforms Snapdragon 730
Huawei recently announced their latest mid-range SoC the Kirin 810 based on the trending 7nm architecture which is often found in high-end mobile SoCs.
Speaking about the architecture of this modern SoC, it has two ARM Cortex-A76 bigger cores clocked at 2.27GHz and six ARM Cortex-A55 cores are clocked at 1.88GHz.
This type of architecture ensures the maximum usage of the cores like, the smaller cores handles normal apps and the stronger ones ensures smooth gaming.
The CPU cores are backed up by a stronger ARM Mali-G52 MP6 GPU that is said to be having 162% performance improvement over the previous gen. The GPU also supports Kirin Gaming+ technology.
In the Geekbench scores, the Kirin 810 outperforms the new mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 8nm SoC by 11% in single-core scores and 13% better in multi-core scores.
In other GPU related benchmarks like the GFXBench 1080p Mahattan test, the Kirin 810’s ARM Mali-G52 MP6 GPU offers 44% improved frame rates over its rival Snapdragon 730 with Adreno 618 GPU and almost 15% better frame rates in GFXBench 1080p T-Rex test.
The Kirin 810’s NPU uses the HUAWEI’s self-made Da Vinci Architecture based on Rubik’s Cube Quantitative Stereo Arithmetic Unit. This powerful DaVinci NPU outperforms the high-end SoCs like Snapdragon 855 and MediaTek Helio P90, scoring 32,280 points in AI benchmarks.
This new GPU along with Huawei’s own AI optimizations will give you improved gaming experience due to:
- system-level AI FM scheduling technology,
- GPU underlying driver upgrades,
- GPU load optimization, and
- HD game effects optimization.
It seems Huawei has taken the gaming experience quite seriously by implementing powerful GPU optimizations to resist the likes of Snapdragon SoCs.
The series of GPU optimizations offered by this new chipset helps to reduce repeated instructions and GPU overload. Also it helps to speed up the data transfer speed between CPU, GPU and the memory.
The Gaming+ HD game special effects optimization also helps to improve the game quality, light effects and contrast, providing you a more real-world gaming experience.
For photo addicts this new SoC has brought a lot of new features like the IVP + ISP offer flagship image processing capability. Huawei has also upgraded the pixel processing unit, enhanced the white balance algorithm, implemented noise reduction in RAW image processing.
When the pictures captured using this SoC is compared against the Snapdragon 730’s Spectra 350 ISP, the Kirin 810 provides better low-light image processing.
Huawei Nova 5 is the first smartphone to feature this new chipset. It is great to see that Huawei has stood positive and is back in business after the US trade ban, the best part they are trying to be much more independent unit than before as we see them implementing their self-made technologies on their SoCs.
