Huawei unveils world's first commercial 7nm chipset Kirin 980

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

For the benchmark scores, you'll have to wait till October 16 when Huawei will officially launch the Mate 20 series smartphones in London.

We've done a piece about why chipset matters and how it works.

Huawei is yet to disclose the clock speed of the new Kirin 980 processor. The company made the announcement while introducing its new Kirin 980 processor which stands as the world's first 7nm chipset.

Compared to the previous generation 10nm process, the 7nm process delivers 20 per cent improved SoC performance and 40 per cent more efficiency, said Huawei which surpassed Apple to become the second-largest global smartphone seller behind Samsung in the second quarter of this year. Since it uses an ARM Cortex-A76 based CPU, the Kirin 980 claims to deliver a whopping 75% higher performance and 58% higher power efficiency compared to its predecessor, the Kirin 970.

Juror talked about Paul Manafort defense during trial
Information for this article was contributed by Matthew Haag and Sharon LaFraniere of The New York Times; and by Carol D. For his part, Ellis said he was inclined to question jurors one-by-one about their ability to decide the case fairly.

Huawei has also developed a Kirin CPU subsystem with Flex-Scheduling technology that flexibly allocates the right cores to the right tasks. Compared with the traditional big.LITTLE design, this solution designates the large high-performance cores to handle immediate, intensive workloads; the large, high-efficiency cores to provide sustained performance; and ultra-efficiency cores to tackle everyday, light activities with extreme power efficiency.

The Huawei Mate 20 will be the first smartphone to come with the Kirin 980 SoC. The GPU comes with clock boosting technology that will adjust the resource allocation depending on the requirement of an app or a game. The image recognition has improved tremendously as the dual NPUs help in achieving 4500 images per minute & hence, the recognition speed increases up to 120%. The Huawei P20 starts at 649 EUR (Rs.53,600 approx.) for the 4GB RAM + 128GB storage variant, while the P20 Pro starts at 899 EUR (Rs.74,200 approx.) for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant.

Debuting with the Kirin 980 chip, Mali-G76 offers 46 per cent greater graphics processing power at 178 per cent improved power efficiency over the previous generation, according to Huawei.

The Kirin 980 is the first 7nm chip to hit the market. That's why Huawei's new Camera ISP, for which Huawei is claiming a 46% improvement in performance, is important. Kirin 980 adopts a new pipeline dedicated to processing video captures, allowing the camera module to shoot videos with 33 percent shorter delay, Huawei informed. Other world's firsts include the first to feature a MALI-G76 graphics processing unit, CAT 21 5G Modem for up to 1.4Gbps downloads, a dual NPU (neural network processing unit), Cortex-A76 processors and more. Additionally, the Kirin 980 supports carrier aggregation, even across frequency bands.
