Huawei’s new Kirin 980 is the world’s first 7nm processor

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

So far, however, it's lagged behind all-out graphics speed and power efficiency.

Huawei is yet to disclose the clock speed of the new Kirin 980 processor. The cover prevents one from getting a better view at the device.

The first devices based on Kirin 980 will be smartphones Mate Mate 20 and 20 Pro, which will show in October.

The Kirin 980 is the first 7nm chip to hit the market. I've put together a quick list of the chip's six most exciting features to get your pulse flowing. In addition, Kirin 980 utilizes the Multi-pass noise reduction solution that accurately removes artifacts without scrubbing away image details, resulting in better quality on images taken in low-light scenarios. 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.

This is the first mobile chip to support LPDDR4X 2.133 MHz RAM technology.

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.

The Kirin 980 is also the first SoC to embed ARM Cortex-A76 cores, which are 75% more powerful and 58% more efficient compared to their previous generation. It is 120% faster than the previous NPU found in the Kirin 970. 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. Normally, this is done by assigning different types of task to different types of CPU core. The idea is to save battery life.

Debuting with the Kirin 980 chip, Mali-G76 offers 46 per cent greater graphics processing power at 178 per cent improved power efficiency over the previous generation, according to Huawei.

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. Another new feature of the ISP is improved motion tracking, claiming 97.4% accuracy while tracking a moving person. It is worth mentioning that the current best chipset for Android phones, the Snapdragon 845, features the Cortex-A75 cores. Huawei's example was image recognition. Although this might sound stupidly fast, any improvement in performance when it comes to cellular connectivity usually means improvements across the board, not just in peak download speeds. While the Mate 20 Lite will be powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 710, the same processor which was used on the recently launched Huawei Nova 3i. I'm yet to be convinced of the true benefit of having discrete CPUs for handling these sorts of operations. The chip is comparatively efficient and powerful than its rivals and is being manufactured by China-based TSMC which also works for Qualcomm and other major chip makers.
