Kirin 810 Smokes Snapdragon 730 In Antutu Results
Earlier this week, Huawei unveiled a variety of new products at a Chinese event which includes the Nova 5 lineup and MediaPad M6 tablet duo. One significant offering that the company unveiled at the event is the Kirin 810 SoC which is featured in the Nova 5. The newly released chipset is intended towards devices that fall in the mid range and premium segment.
In terms of competition, the chipset that contends against Huawei’s offering is the Snapdragon 730 which is developed by Qualcomm. Antutu, a popular benchmarking platform has shared a comparison table that details the difference between the Kirin 810 and Snapdragon 730 across various aspects including CPU and GPU.
Noteworthy, in the GPU department, the Kirin 810 races far ahead of the Snapdragon 730. The former records a score of 73380 points while the latter only manages 58149. In no regards is the Qualcomm chipset underpowered, but the Kirin 810 trumps it in all departments.
To recap, the Kirin 810 SoC is fabricated using 7 nm process and is manufactured by TSMC (Taiwan Semi-Conductor Manufacturing Company). It consists of an Octa Core CPU along with the Mali G52 GPU. The eight core CPU setup is comprised of two different clusters which include 2x Cortex-A76 cores which are clocked at 2.27 GHz and 6x Cortex A55 cores which are clocked at 1.88 GHz. This combination of two different CPU architecture and clock speed clusters allow devices employing the chipset to provide the optimised equilibrium of performance and battery life.
To sum it all, Huawei has done a fantastic job with its latest chipset which will definitely give Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 730 a run for its money. As of now, the Nova 5 is the only device equipped with the SoC but Huawei is expected to unveil a whole array of handsets with this chipset in the coming future.
