HiSilicon Kirin 980 based on 7nm processing announced: 5G ready SoC

Huawei Kirin 980 is the World’s First Commercial 7nm Chipset, To Power Mate 20 Series and Honor Magic 2

According to the company, the Kirin 980 has 6.9 billion transistors running on it. The other four cores are among low-power Cortex-A55 cores that will work in collaboration with Huawei's Flex-scheduling technology that the smartphone maker recently developed. The best news is that fans won't have long to wait to get their grubby mitts on one.

In addition, Kirin 980 utilizes the multi-pass noise reduction solution that removes artifacts without losing image details. As the world's first commercial SoC manufactured with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturer Company's (TSMC) 7nm process, Huawei boasts that the Kirin 980 can deliver best-in-class performance, efficiency, connectivity features, and Dual NPU AI processing power. According to Huawei, the 7nm process ensures 20% better performance & 58% better power efficiency than the last generation, i.e., the Kirin 970. That's impressive on paper considering the Snapdragon 845 is the current market leader for speed. It is also reportedly the first SoC to support LPDDR4X RAM with speeds of 2,133MHz.

Huawei had plenty to talk about at this year's IFA, including unveiling its newest processor for smartphones and teasing the launch date for its newest flagship handset. This is the first SoC that will make 7-nanometer process technology and the first platform with a new processor cores Cortex-A76. It is 120% faster than the previous NPU found in the Kirin 970. Normally, this is done by assigning different types of task to different types of CPU core.

Since this is a 7nm chipset, it is more power efficient and powerful than the 10nm processors like the Snapdragon 845. The idea is to save battery life.

With so many credentials besides its name, Kirin 980 chipset will surely be Huawei's first choice for its future flagships. Another new feature of the ISP is improved motion tracking.

Having recovered from his illness , Ozil has been back in full training ahead of Arsenal's trip to Cardiff City on Sunday. Arsenal would need to consistently play through all areas of the pitch for Aubameyang to start firing on all cylinders.

Another interesting thing about the camera ISP chip is that it has 23% better video recording power efficiency, which (I'm speculating here) should enable 60fps 4K video recording, or allow Huawei phones to use stabilisation in 4K footage.

Huawei says it has integrated the Mali-G76 GPU into the Kirin 980 to deliver an enhanced gaming experience. The new Mate 20 series will be the first smartphone series to be powered by the new HiSilicon Kirin 980 processor.

Another area where Huawei is leading the way, at least when it comes to making its capabilities available in production silicon, is the speed of its 4G modems and built-in Wi-Fi.

Huawei has doubled down on its AI processing aspirations, adding a dual NPU (neural processor unit) to the Kirin 980, which performs AI-assisted image recognition tasks at a rate of 4,500 images per minute this number though sound blanks but it is more than twice the Snapdragon 845 can pull and more than 3X what Apple's A11 can perform.
