The Kirin 970 is only slightly behind the Snapdragon 845, ranking second, and now the Kirin 980 is officially confirmed by Huawei and will be released in September. Or it may become the next generation of the strongest Android processor, at least in terms of AI intelligence should be the world’s strongest, because Huawei has two big moves.
Prior to the news on the Internet, TSMC’s 7nm FinFET process was supported by orders from Chinese AI chip companies, such as Huawei’s Kirin and Cambrian Technology, which further deepened relations and expanded scale. The next generation processor of Huawei Kirin 980, and will continue to be handed over to TSMC.
This processor is built with the same 7nm process technology as the Apple A12. It is equipped with the artificial intelligence NPU that Cambrian just released, and will integrate ARM’s new A77 core architecture, still, eight cores, four A77+4 A55, clocked at up to 2.8GHz, can be described as a natural fit.
What do you think is the performance of the Kirin 980? This year, Apple’s A12 processor and Snapdragon 855 processor also use the 7nm process, so after the release of the three, the performance between the duel will be very exciting, we will wait and see.
