Official: Huawei Unveils New HiSilicon Kirin 950 with Core Cortex-A72 to 16nm

Just days away from his first appearance on GeekBench 3, Huawei has finally officially presented the new Kirin 950, his next SoC top range which will debut on the long-awaited Mate 8 towards the end of the month.
As we have seen in recent weeks, if not months, Kirin 950 will be the first SoC for smartphones to use powerful ARM core Cortex-A72 , made with Finfets 16nm fabrication process and capable of achieving frequencies up to 2.53 GHz. The high-powered cluster is therefore consists of 4 core Cortex-A72, which goes to support a second cluster with greater efficiency, always quad core, consisting of core Cortex-A53 to 1.8 GHz, obviously all in big configuration. LITTLE.
All this regarding the CPU component of SoC, which also integrates a new co-i5 processor always active (not i7 as speculated earlier) can handle alone in the management of various sensors on the device so you don’t have to activate the core more energy-consuming. As for the GPU is the latest version of the series the evils created by ARM, or the new Mali-T880MP4can offer superior graphics performance of 80% and 40% lower power consumptioncompared to the current Mali-T760.
Complete the SoC a modem LTE ch. 6 can reach speeds of up to 300 Mbps and support to technology Times. There is also a considerable improvement of voice quality during calls, thanks to the support of frequencies between 50 Hz and the 7KHz and reduced latency that passes from a range of between 5 and 6 seconds to one between 0.5 and 1.5 seconds.Improvements regarding the voice quality are also applied during music playback.
Kirin 950, thanks to a new production process to 16nm Finfets and use of new core Cortex-A72, allows you to reduce power consumption by 60% and 40% performance increase over the previous generation of SoC Kirin 930, with improvements up to show increments of 100%regarding the graphics performance. Also the co-i5 shows significant improvements as regards consumption. Compared to its predecessor i3, consumption rose from 90 mA at 6.5 but. This means, according to Huawei, in an increase of up to 10 hours of use “normal” out of a terminal with battery 3500 mAh.
In short, Kirin 950 appears to be the right SoC to tackle this imminent 2016: computing power, graphics power and energy savings seem to be the main strengths of the new Huawei proposal that we can’t wait to put under our glass with the arrival of Hauwei Mate 8.
