Kirin 980 posts Geekbench scores on par with A12 Bionic! Trounces all other Android smartphones in the market!
The HUAWEI Mate 20 is going to feature the Kirin 980, a chipset that’s based on the latest 7nm FinFET manufacturing process, and features the latest Cortex A76 CPU cores and Mali G76 GPU. We have expected performance to be amazing, but not this amazing!
The HUAWEI Mate 20 was just spotted on Geekbench’s database, with a high single-core score of 3390, and an equally mind-blowing multi-core score of 10318. For comparison’s sake, our sample of the Galaxy Note9 scored a higher 3495 points for the single-core run, but only manages 8948 in the multi-core run. Meanwhile a POCOPHONE F1 with a Snapdragon 845 does just 2485 in single-core runs, and gets a multi-core score of 9154.
The king of the hill in smartphone chipset-land, the A12 Bionic, scores 4081 for its single-core score, while the multi-core score hit a lofty 11130. Single-core performance has always been Apple’s forte, so no surprises there. But given the very close multi-core scores, and what’s probably yet-to-be-finalized software on the HUAWEI Mate 20, there’s a high chance it might actually surpass the latest iPhones in terms of multi-core CPU performance.
The HUAWEI Mate 20 is probably going to be more powerful than of any Android smartphone currently in the market. Which is definitely necessary considering that it will be fighting off next-gen smartphones very soon. The good news is, the wait isn’t much longer. The launch event is 16th October, so stay tuned for live updates!
Pokdepinion: I can’t wait to check out the Kirin 980! I hope the GPU is fast enough to keep up with the beefy CPU though.
