Huawei shows off 7nm Kirin 980 SoC

Huawei shows off 7nm Kirin 980 SoC

Huawei officially launched their latest Kirin 980 chipset today at IFA 2018 as the world's first 7nm chipset. This solution designates the large high-performance cores to handle immediate, intensive workloads; the large, high-efficiency cores to provide sustained performance; and ultra-efficiency cores to tackle every day, light activities with extreme power efficiency.

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei has confirmed to launch the Mate 20 series at a special event in London on October 16.

The Kirin 980 is not only the first 7nm processor in the world, it is also the first chipset with the new Cortex-A76 CPU cores; the first chipset with a dual-NPU; the first with the Mali-G76 GPU, the first with a Cat.

The news comes from Huawei, which unveiled the world's first 7nm chip at IFA 2018 in Berlin, Germany, adding that the first Kirin 980-powered Mate Series device is scheduled to arrive in October. Around front, the new handset has a 24MP "Fusion Pixel" camera with an aperture of f/2.0 that's also coupled with a 2MP camera. The problem of scheduling that will result from three separate core clusters on the Kirin 980 will be managed by a new flexible scheduler. That last one is in addition to Huawei's GPU Turbo, which can boost graphical power while also reducing battery life. The Kirin 980 can apparently recognise up to 4,600 images per minute, which is up 120 per cent compared to Kirin 970.

The Kirin 980 will be seen shortly on the upcoming Huawei flagships later this year.

Kirin 980 adopts a new pipeline dedicated to processing video captures, allowing the camera module to shoot videos with 33 percent shorter delay, Huawei informed. Another new feature of the ISP is improved motion tracking. The photos shot by the Kirin 980-powered device captured sharper detail than the ones photographed by the Snapdragon 845: you were still able to make out the words on signs even in the dark. The idea is, like many less popular smartphone companies, that the Mate 20 Lite offers a premium smartphone experience without any of the annoyingly high pricetags associated with them.

There's also dual neural processors which, says Huawei, will enable much faster on-device image recognition as well as a fast 1.4Gbps 4G LTE modem.
