Huawei unveiled their latest Kirin 970 chipset which will power their upcoming Mate 10 flagship device and comes equipped to handle future AI techs and also has a neural processing unit for native AI processing.
Huawei CEO Richard Yu has made claims that their latest SoC that has been built using 10nm fabrication process with a 12-core GPU is better than the processors powering Apple and Samsung devices.
“Compared with Samsung and Apple, we have advantages. Users are in for much faster performance, longer battery life and more compact design,” Richard Yu told Reuters.
Camera: Dual-camera with face and motion detection
Video Capture and Playback: Up to 4K Ultra HD @ 30 fps
Storage: UFS 2.1
Security: Security Engine InSE and TEE
The Kirin 970 packs more power than its predecessor, Kirin 960, and hence, provides 20 percent better performance and 50 percent increased efficiency. The 12-core GPU that comes with the Kirin 970 is sure going to be a delight for gamers.
While only two things are confirmed yet that the Apple A11 chipset will be built using the 10nm tech and manufactured by TMSC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company), numerous rumors have been afloat including its Geekbench listing.
Manufacturing Process: 10 nanometre
CPU: 6 x Cores (hexa-core) up to 2.74 GHz
GPU: Apple-designed (3-core)
Apple’s A11 Bionic chip uses two high-performance cores and four energy efficient cores on its A11 chipset, fitted with a second-gen performance controller which enables all six cores to function smoothly in-sync.
The Apple-designed 3-core GPU ensure 30 percent better graphics rendering than the A10. Huawei’s Neural Processing Unit (NPU) has been matched by the A11 Bionic chip with its neural engine.
