Since last yearHuawei hasshowngreat potentialin producing their ownchipsetstorun on theirdevices. The Huawei P8 and P8 Lite are good examples both running the Kirin 935. Despite the satisfactory performance, this still isn’t the best that Huawei has to offer, coming in both Kirin 940 and 950.
Sincethe first reportsabout the newKirin950, weall createdgood expectationsthat thiswould bethe firstchipsetfrom Huawei to compete, if not surpassthebest that we havein the market today. Thechipthat would givepower totheHuaweiAscendMate8 and thepossibleHonor7 Plusdoes not havea dateto reach the marketand in a optimistic view, until the endof this year. The Kirin 940 is expected to come in the next month in the Huawei Ascend Mate 7s and while the 950 don’t show up we can now check some details about it.
The Kirin 950 is an octa-core CPU made in the 16nm FinFET process that counts with a cluster of 4x Cortex-A72 up to 2.4GHz and another cluster of 4x Cortex-A53, besides the Mali-T860 GPU for graphic processing and the support the fast LPDDR4 RAM technology.The Kirin 950 gets a punctuation of 6.000 points in the Multi-Core Geekbench 3 Test, 20% more than the current unbeatable Exynos 7420. The 950 also did well in the single-core test reaching 1.900 points which is 30% better than performed by Exynos 7420.
We expect the Kirin 950 to debut inside the Huawei Ascend Mate 8, previously expected for September but due to the chipset delay, it would be launched early in the next year. However, talking about the Kirin 940 we expect the upcoming Mate 7S to do impressively well with it.
More details about the Kirin 940 and 950 should come with the time, and with the IFA date in the corner that shouldn’t take a long time, only by then we can confirm if the info is totally accurate or a bit of overstatement. More details we will cover, for now leave your thoughts about the Huawei’s newest SoCs, can they do well with the competition?
