Huawei unveils world's first commercial 7nm chipset Kirin 980

Huawei unveils world's first commercial 7nm chipset Kirin 980

It will provide more processing power when dealing with high-end graphics. "Equipped with all-new CPU, GPU and Dual NPU, the Kirin 980 is the ultimate engine to power the next-generation productivity and entertainment applications". The cover prevents one from getting a better view at the device.

Huawei has confirmed that the Huawei Mate 20 and Huawei Mate 20 Pro Smartphones will be launching on 16th October.

In addition, Kirin 980 utilizes the multi-pass noise reduction solution that removes artifacts without losing image details. I've put together a quick list of the chip's six most exciting features to get your pulse flowing.

Huawei is at the IFA 2018 and besides letting go of its plans in regards to Android 9 Pie update, the Chinese company has also released its new smartphone flagship processor, the Kirin 980. Huawei says this equals around 30 percent better efficiency, especially when playing intensive games on mobile devices. Also Huawei Kirin 980 compared with competing Snapdragon SoC 845, claiming the superiority of their own decisions on gaming performance by 22% reduced by 32% energy consumption. That's impressive on paper considering the Snapdragon 845 is the current market leader for speed. It is also the first chip to support 2,133MHz LPDDR4X RAM.

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.

There are other advantages to the smaller manufacturing process aside from pure performance, however.

International Space Station Repaired After Pressure Leak
The Russian Mission Control recommended the astronauts to let the sealant dry for a night and conduct more leak checks on Friday. Mission controllers in Houston, Texas, and Russia's capital, Moscow, say the six-strong crew are in no danger .

The Kirin 980 SoC comes with many firsts.

And, the Honor Magic 2, which was teased recently on Twitter with the sliding camera feature, is also expected to be powered by the Kirin 980 SoC.

Moreover, concerning photography performance, the Kirin 980 uses a new dual ISP (image signal processor) thus being 46 percent faster at camera processing than its predecessor, with a comparative 23 percent improvement in power efficiency while recording, and 33 percent improvement in latency. The idea is to save battery life.

At the event, Huawei stated that the System-on-chip (SoC) uses the newly release Mali-G76 GPU instead of previously used Mali-G72 paired with Kirin 970 and the figures are the create indicator of its sheer power.

It's important to remember that the SoC isn't the only power hungry component in a smartphone; the screen also sucks up a lot of juice, so don't expect revelatory benefits. Image processing performed by the CPU has at least as big a part to play in modern smartphone image quality as the sensor and the optics. Another new feature of the ISP is improved motion tracking.
