Huawei unveils its new Kirin 980 mobile processor

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

Huawei now expects P20 series shipments to reach around 16 million by the end of the year. While the company did not announce new smartphone, it did confirm the launch date of the Mate 20 series and introduced a few new color options for its existing flagship smartphones - P20 and P20 Pro.

We've done a piece about why chipset matters and how it works.

Huawei has just launched its new Kirin 980 processor at IFA Berlin.

Simona Halep suffers shock first-round defeat at the US Open
She pulled out of last week's Connecticut Open with an Achilles injury. "She played quarter-finals past year ", she said. Halep recovered and it appeared a comeback was on when she broke Kanepi to love to level the second set at 4-4.

"Last year, we showed the world the potential of On-Device AI with the Kirin 970, and this year, we've designed an all-round powerhouse that features outstanding AI capabilities, and brings cutting-edge raw performance to consumers", said Mr. Yu. Equipped with all-new CPU, GPU and Dual NPU, the Kirin 980 is the ultimate engine to power next-generation productivity and entertainment applications. It is the world's first chipset to be based upon TSMC's 7nm manufacturing process. It also has 20 percent better bandwidth and 22 percent lower latency than Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 845 which Huawei says will, essentially, be crushed by the 980 in real-world usage. Also, the Kirin 980 is the first ever chipset to support LPDDR4X at 2133MHz and a dual NPU chip which Huawei calls as Dual-brain Power which is double the capacity compared to the previously used single NPU chip in Kirin 970 and it is 120 percent faster too.

Huawei has also developed a Kirin CPU subsystem with Flex-Scheduling technology that flexibly allocates the right cores to the right tasks. Out of these eight cores, two are "super cores", two are "large cores", and, the remaining four are efficiency cores.

In yet another "world first", the Huawei Kirin 980 will employ the next generation Mali-G76 GPU in a bid to match Qualcomm's gaming performance. Mali-G76 also features an innovative clock boosting technology that utilizes AI to intelligently identify gaming workloads and adjust resource allocation for optimal gaming performance. The Kirin 980 has features of improved performance, efficiency, connectivit and Dual NPU AI processing power. With dual NPU, Huawei says AI-based image recognition on the Kirin 980 happens at a rate of 4500 images per minute. The P20 Pro and its three cameras, coupled with the Kirin 970, are already an wonderful combination, so anything that improves image quality could make future Huawei phones unassailable on the picture front in future. The HiSilicon Kirin 980 is the latest chipset from the company, which is the successor to the HiSilicon Kirin 970 SoC. Huawei claims 46% increase in data throughput compared to its predecessor.

Jurgen Klopp criticises two Liverpool stars after Crystal Palace victory
The first half was fairly even with close chances from Mohamed Salah and Andros Townsend of Palace , until right before halftime. Referee Michael Oliver's decision to award the penalty seemed generous and Hodgson was strong in his condemnation.

The Kirin 980 is the first 7nm chip to hit the market.

In addition, the Kirin 980 has a new way of implementing what's known in smartphone processor circles as "big little" processing.

Moving ahead, the Kirin 980 SoC has 1st Cat 21 modem that can take the maximum download speed of 1.4gbps of peak performance and wifi speeds of up to 1.7gbps. Additionally, the Kirin 980 supports carrier aggregation, even across frequency bands, so users are free to choose their mobile operators and still enjoy the same premium connectivity experience, regardless of where they are.
