Huawei Mate 20 Pro and Kirin 980 have been spotted at the well-known benchmark Geekbench, giving us a first taste of the performance of the new CPU on the HiSilicon high-end SoC. Before going into the analysis of the scores, we point out that the bench seems to confirm the presence of Android 9 Pie as standard on Mate 20 Pro – identified by the acronym LYA-L29 and a cut of 6GB RAM. This probably will not be the only one available, since we also expect an 8GB variant.
Turning instead to the results obtained, we note that the single-core score amounts to 3390 points, while the multi-core score stands at 10318. Overall it is a good balance between the two components and the first SoC on Android devices to overcome the barrier of 10000 points.
However, despite the adoption of the new Cortex-A76 cores, Huawei’s proposal achieves a lower single-core score than that achieved by Samsung’s Exynos 9810 – which achieves about 3700 points and that totaled by the last two Apple SoCs, or A11 Bionic and A12 Bionic, respectively able to reach 4200 and 4800 points in single core . As for the multi-core segment, on the other hand, only A11 and A12 manage to position themselves on higher levels, the former with around 10700 points and the second with 11500 points.
Recall that Kirin 980 is the first SoC in the Android to be produced with the production process at 7nm and that Huawei had recently claimed to have packaged a better product than proposed by Apple with its A12 Bionic. The first data seem to deny what was declared, but we will have to wait to try it with our hands to be able to establish it with certainty.
