The Chinese manufacturer has just unveiled its first 5G-integrated 5nm SoCs chipsets, along with the Huawei Mate 40 series ensuring better performance and stronger networking traits than earlier generations.
The Hisilicon Kirin 9000 5G SoC and the Kirin 9000E are both chipsets manufactured on TSMC’s 5nm architecture.
We can easily say that the new Kirin 9000 is the most full-featured 5G SoC at the moment, integrating more than 15.3 billion transistors, the powerful processor surpasses the 15 billion transistors mark.
With a base frequency a little bit higher than that of the Snapdragon 865 Plus, its CPU integrates eight cores, a 3.13GHz Cortex-A77 large core, three Cortex-A77 medium cores each clocked at 2.54GHz and four Cortex-A55 small cores clocked at 2.04GHz. Therefore, is safe to say that the Kirin 9000 has highest frequency mobile phone processor at the moment.
The processor also a 24-core Mali-G78 GPU and a three cores NPU.
Being the most powerful GPU ever integrated on a Huawei device, it offers great AI capacities, advanced graphics performance and impeccable audiovisual experience for immersive gaming.
In terms of speed, Huawei puts its money on the chip’s Balong 5000 modem carrying up to 6.5Gbps downloads with 5G carrier aggregation. The manufacturer even highlighted that the modem is 5x faster than Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X55 modem.
In terms of connectivity, the chipsets combine Wi-Fi 2.4GHz, Wi-Fi 5Ghz, a 5G main card, and secondary card 4G.
