Huawei Unveils Kirin 980 Chipset

Huawei Kirin 980 is the World’s First Commercial 7nm Chipset, To Power Mate 20 Series and Honor Magic 2

Also, the Kirin 980 is the first ever chipset to support LPDDR4X at 2133MHz and a dual NPU chip which Huawei calls as Dual-brain Power which is double the capacity compared to the previously used single NPU chip in Kirin 970 and it is 120 percent faster too.

"Last year, we showed the world the potential of On-Device AI with the Kirin 970, and this year, we've designed an all-round powerhouse that not only features outstanding AI capabilities, but also brings cutting-edge raw performance to consumers", said Mr. Yu.

In terms of connectivity, the Kirin 980 is the world's first modem to support LTE Cat 21 with a peak download speed of 1.4Gbps. Out of these eight cores, two are "super cores", two are "large cores", and, the remaining four are efficiency cores. Huawei's example was image recognition.

The Kirin 980 also comes with improvements on the connectivity front. The Kirin 980 was able to identify 4,500 images per minute, while the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 managed to identify 2,371 during the same stretch of time.

Compared to the SoC based on 10nm manufacturing process (Snapdragon 845, Kirin 970 SoC, etc.) the Kirin 980 (based on 7nm manufacturing process) can offer up to 20% improved performance and 40% improved efficiency.

Coming to the graphics, Huawei has made a decision to pair the new Kirin 980 chipset with the Mali-G76 GPU. Moreover, the Kirin chip's enhanced AI helps power efficiency with its accurate and intelligent prediction of load requirements, making it more responsive to the power needs of the user - both when the chip needs to power up and when it needs to slow down to save energy.

The Huawei Mate 20 series smartphones will be announced at an event to be held in London on October 16th.
