Kirin 810: the last in the family, the first among competitors

Huawei has introduced a new chipset - Kirin 810. The name obviously indicates that it belongs to the middle class - this is Kirin 810's heir. But steeper.

The chipset has two high-performanceARM Cortex-A76 cores up to 2.27 GHz and six energy-efficient ARM Cortex-A55 1.88 GHz. The graphics processor is presented Mali-G52 MP6. Apparently, this is the latest Huawei chipset, created on the basis of ARM licenses. Its release was possible due to the fact that it was developed before the introduction of sanctions and the refusal of a license by the ARM.

If he is destined to be the last of his kind, thiswill be a worthy conclusion. The chipset is built using a 7-nanometer process, just like the top Kirin 980. None of the chipmakers have such a non-top line, so there are no direct competitors to the new system on the chip. Comparing the system with the previous Kirin 710, Huawei speaks of a 162% increase in productivity. The newest Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 Kirin 810 furnishes 11% in single-core tests and 13% in multi-core mode. The Mali-G52 MP6 against Adreno 618 also performs well, beating up 44%.

Pride Kirin 810 - DaVinci NPU. It is alleged that the new neural unit performs AI tasks faster than even the Snapdragon 855. DaVinci NPU will monitor the smartphone during the game, adding power if necessary and preventing the system from overheating if it deems it likely. It is entrusted with the task of ensuring energy efficiency. Well, of course, the photo is also his diocese.

New IVP + ISP development as part of Kirin 810promises a flagship image processing level with an improved white balance algorithm, noise reduction when processing RAW images and many other parameters important for photo quality. The “middle class” on the Kirin 810 will be capable of night shooting of unprecedented detail.

The first of the Huawei smartphones was the Kirin 810 that was just announced by the Huawei Nova 5.
