Earlier this week, Huawei’s much-anticipated Kirin 950 system on chip was finally made official after its unveiling in Beijing China.
Previously we gave details on the leaked benchmark tests of the Kirin 950 against the competing application processors and now, what looks to be a real world test, showed up in an image that was released by an anonymous account on Weibo.
The leakster claimed that the score as seen on Antutu v5.6.2 app is that of the Huawei’s most anticipated AP (Kirin 950). The image above suggests that the new Kirin flagship SoC blows every other chipset out of the water with a whopping score of 82,945.
It is however unknown how the SD820 and Mongoose 8890 CPUs will perform, so we wouldn’t tag the Kirin 950 the best as of yet. On paper the Kirin 950 packs impressive horsepower that leaves the current competition in the dust.
We have an Octa-core chip with four A72 core and four other consecutive core based off ARM’s A53 cores. The architectures have respective core clocks at 2.2Ghz and 1.5Ghz coupled with a refreshing ARM T880 graphic processing unit that has a maximum throughput of 1700Mtri/s, 13.6Gpix/s at 850MHz with the most efficient design ever and it’s currently the highest GPU in the MALI family.
Just like the Kirin 950, the Mali-T880 is manufactured using TSMC’s 16nm node FinFET process and the GPU has support for the newest APIs out there, including OpenGL® ES 1.1, 1.2, 2.0, 3.0, 3.1, OpenCL™ 1.1, 1.2, DirectX® 11 FL11_2, RenderScript™ and you can read more details on the T880 on ARM’s website.
As seen in the image the next device in line is the Meizu MX4 followed closely by the Note 5 with the Exynos 7420 CPU which doesn’t even come close to the whopping 80,000+ score of the newly announced AP from Huawei.
Like we said earlier, we would like a real world comparison with other new flagship SoCs out there before deciding where the Kirin 950 sits.
We will update you subsequently as more details surfaces on the Application processor; so in the meantime scroll below and share your thoughts on the Kirin 950 with us.
