Huawei announced Kirin 810 – new 7nm chipset

Huawei has announced a brand new Kirin chipset – the Kirin 810 – a mid-range chip based on the same 7nm manufacturing process as the flagship Kirin 980. It’s also the only mid-range SoC with 7nm manufacturing process. Qualcomm’s mid-range chips are set at 8nm, though.

The SoC houses an octa-core CPU and a Mali-G52 MP6 GPU. The CPU consists of two high-performance ARM Cortex-A76 cores clocked at 2.27GHz and six smaller ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.88GHz.

When it comes to the GPU, Huawei promises around 162% better performance over the last generation found in the Kirin 710.

Compared to its main competitor, Qualcomm Snapdragon 730, the Kirin 810 promises 11% better single-core and 13% better multi-core performance. GPU-wise, the Mali-G52 MP6 should outperform the Adreno 618 in the SD730 with up to 44% higher frame rates.

The Kirin 810’s hidden weapon is the 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.

The NPU is quite useful in other areas as well. It’s helping the GPU, CPU, and memory communicate faster and run more efficiently. This ensures stable performance for longer periods of time. The AI system tracks frame rates, fluency and touch screen input changes in real time.

The SoC will be powering the newly announced Huawei Nova 5 and it will eventually make it to other mid-tier Huawei and Honor smartphones.
