Huawei has announced its new Kirin 810 SoC, a mid-range chip based on the same 7nm manufacturing process using which the Kirin 980 SoC has also been developed. The chip has been introduced for the mid-range phone but it has some decent set of innards that can churn out the best performance. It includes an NPU, has an improved image processing unit for better camera processing, and better GPU support for your gaming.
According to Huawei, the all-new Kirin 810 offers 162% better performance over the last generation found in the 12nm-based Kirin 710. The chip promises to offer 11% better single-core and 13% better multi-core performance. GPU-wise, the Mali-G52 MP6 should perform better than the Adreno 618 present in the SD710 with up to 44% higher frame rates.
Compared to the Kirin 710, the new Kirin 810 is based on the 7nm process. This means the SoC offers improvements to power efficiency and brings longer battery life as well.
The HiSilicon Kirin 810 SoC by Huawei includes an octa-core CPU and a Mali-G52 MP6 GPU. It consists of two high-performance ARM Cortex-A76 cores clocked at 2.27GHz and six smaller ARM Cortex-A55 cores ticking at 1.88GHz.
The Kirin 810 SoC includes DaVinci NPU based on the Rubik’s Cube Quantitative Stereo Arithmetic Unit capable of outperforming the Snapdragon 855 and MediaTek Helio P90 in AI-related tasks.
Huawei explains the AI system can predict GPU overload and adjust the frequency accordingly. It also tracks frame rates, fluency, and touch screen input changes in real time. Basically, this system is going to help the users during their intense gaming sessions. The NPU will further help the CPU and GPU to communicate faster and run more efficiently.
The Kirin 810 SoC includes flagship ISP image processor which includes improved white balance algorithm and noise reduction in RAW image processing. It should help the camera deliver better low-light images. The chip also supports dual-SIM dual VoLTE for better connectivity.
In related news, Huawei is reportedly also looking to launch its flagship Kirin 985 chipset based on 7nm process somewhere in H2 2019.
