Huawei is making into the headlines for quite a long time now due to the U.S ban controversy. However, the company has refused to slow down and neither they are planning to stop their innovations. Therefore, Huawei just announced its brand new Kirin 810 SoC which is a 7nm processor similar to the flagship Kirin 980 SoC. However, the 810 is the first 7nm based mid-range SoC from the company. It is a direct successor to the Kirin 710 which we have seen in many Huawei and Honor devices.
HiSilicon Kirin 810
It has two ARM Cortex-A76 bigger cores clocked at 2.27GHz and the other six smaller ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.88GHz. Compared to its competitor, Qualcomm Snapdragon 730(8nm), the Kirin 810 promises 11% better single-core and 13% better multi-core performance.
Mali-G52 MP6 GPU
It also features ARM Mali-G52 MP6 GPU, which has a 162% performance improvement over the previous generation and supports Kirin Gaming+ technology. Notably, in the GFXBench 1080p Manhattan test, Mali-G52 MP6 should outperform the Adreno 618 in the SD730 with up to 44% higher frame rates. In addition, it has a 15% better frame rate in the GFXBench 1080p T-Rex test.
Kirin 810 also packs a powerful new NPU that uses HUAWEI Da Vinci Architecture. It is based on Rubik’s Cube Quantitative Stereo Arithmetic Unit. In the AI benchmark, the new NPU outperformed the Snapdragon 855 and MediaTek Helio P90 by scoring 32,280 points. The NPU is supposed to help the GPU, CPU, and memory to communicate faster and efficiently to ensure stable performance for longer periods of time.
The NPU can also improve gaming experience with system-level AI FM scheduling technology, GPU underlying driver upgrades, GPU load optimization, and HD game effects optimization. AI frequency modulation scheduling technology can learn frame rate, fluency and touch screen input changes in real time. In addition, it can predict task load, dynamically sense performance bottlenecks. Therefore it can perform frequency modulation scheduling to improve prediction accuracy.
IVP + ISP
Huawei is also touting its new IVP + ISP. It offers flagship image processing capability with an upgraded pixel processing unit. It supposes to offer enhanced white balance algorithm, noise reduction in RAW image processing and more. Huawei also compared low-light image processing with the Snapdragon 730’s Spectra 350 ISP. According to Huawei, their IVP and ISP offer better details even in low lighting.
