Since last year Huawei has shown great potential in producing their own chipsets to run on their devices. We are still waiting for the more info about Kirin 940 chip but we can now shed some light on the flagship Kirin 950.
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.
- Single-core test: 1,909 points
- Multi-core test: 6,096 points
- Single-core test: 1,486 points
- Multi-core test: 4,970 points
The Kirin 950 will most probably premiere on the Huawei Mate 8, which has been reportedly delayed for early next year. Still, we expect the upcoming Mate 7S to do impressively well with its Kirin 940 – an octa-core CPU with 4x Cortex-A72 at 2.2GHz and 4x Cortex-A53, Mali-T860 GPU and LPDDR4 RAM.
