The Chinese smartphone testing application Master Lu has published the test results of two smartphones based on Huawei's Kirin 810. The Hisilicon Kirin 810 chipset was released aboard the Huawei Nova 5 a few weeks ago. It is also expected that he will be on board the upcoming Honor 9X.
Published data show that the Honor 9X scored 270,037 points, while the Huawei Nova 5 seems to have a higher clock speed, gaining 278,181 points. This is more than 20,000 points higher than in the Master Lu test on the Snapdragon 730 with Redmi K20.
Master Lu admitted that since the two Huawei phones are not yet on sale, there is a possibility that the results of the test and commercial units may differ. However, the difference cannot be too significant.
Master Lu emphasized that since both models have not yet been sold, the current number of test models is small, and it is impossible to exclude the possibility that estimates will fluctuate later. However, thanks to the performance of Huawei nova 5 and glory 9X, the performance of the Kirin 810 is second only to the Samsung Exynos 9810 in the middle category, and this is pretty impressive.
Recall that the HiSilicon Kirin 810 is an eight-core processor built on the 7-nm TSMC node. It is equipped with two high-performance large Cortex-A76 cores with a clock frequency of 2.27 GHz and six energy-efficient small Cortex-A55 cores with a clock frequency of 1.88 GHz. Combined with the Mali-G52 GPU for graphics processing.
It also comes with Huawei's new DaVinci architecture NPU, which consumes less power and features 32,280 artificial intelligence (AI) technology. As already mentioned, the AI performance of the Kirin 810 even surpasses the flagship Snapdragon 855.
