Snapdragon 710 vs Kirin 710: Which performs better in Geekbench test?

24 July 2018 3

This year both Qualcomm and Huawei stepped up their mid-range game by introducing new 700 series chipsets. Fortunately both the companies adopted the same sequence number for the first SoC of 700 series. The Qualcomm's Snapdragon 710 and Huawei's Kirin 710 chipset both are powering smartphones now. Huawei recently introduced Nova 3i as their first smartphone with the Kirin 710 SoC whereas the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE is out for quite some time with the Snapdragon 710. Today we have a Geekbench test of both the latest chipsets which certainly reveals which chipset is better in single-core and multi-core tests.

As expected the Snapdragon 710 takes lead not only in single-core but also in multi-core test as well. One of the advantages of Snapdragon 710 is being built on a 10nm FinFet process whereas the Kirin 710 SoC is produced on a 12nm process. Both are Octa-core chipsets, the Snapdragon 710 comes with dual Kryo 360 gold cores clocking at 2.2Ghz whereas the other six-cores of Kryo 360 silver clocking at 1.7Ghz.

On the other hand, the Kirin 710 has quad performance cores of Cortex-A73 clocking at 2.2Ghz and the power efficient quad of Cortex-A53 clocking at 1.7Ghz. The Snapdragon 710 outpaces the Kirin 710 with significant margin on both single and multi-core tests. Just for the sake of reminder, the P20 Lite comes with Kirin 659 SoC (Predecessor of Kirin 710). The device ended the battle with the fourth position and significantly lower performance in both single-core multi tests.

In terms of performance what is not mentioned above is the fact that kirin processors are getting GPU turbo update which is already officially release and it boost the phone performance by 60% and reduced battery consumption by 30%. Its really awesome how Huawei has managed to do this. Its a software and hard ware integratied software. I even got GPU turbo upgrade on my honor 8lite and I can really see the difference.
