AnTuTu news: Huawei's Kirin 810 beats the Snapdragon 730 as expected
Unveiled last weekend, Huawei's HiSilicon Kirin 810 is a 7 nm mid-range mobile processor that takes full advantage of its architecture, thus being able to deliver a 50 percent transistor density increase and a 20 percent energy efficiency improvement over its 8 nm-built predecessors. Now, an AnTuTu listing comes to confirm that this chip is faster than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730.
The Huawei SEA-AL00 device that has just been spotted on AnTuTu is apparently the upcoming Nova 5. This handset runs Android 9.0 Pie-based software, has a display of an unspecified size with a resolution of 2,340 x 1,080 pixels, and the aforementioned Kirin 810 processor inside. In its proximity there are also 8 GB of memory and 256 GB of internal storage space. This mobile processor comes with Mali-G52 graphics and its AnTuTu benchmark score is 237,437.
The Xiaomi Mi 9T/Redmi K20 with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor inside barely managed to go above the 210,000 AnTuTu points milestone. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 is much slower, only reaching 140,000 points. We also need to mention that the Kirin 810 seems to be faster than the Kirin 980 that can be found inside the Huawei Mate 20 family.
These being said, remains to see what will happen with the ongoing war against Huawei. HiSilicon Kirin products seem to be dangerous competitors for the Snapdragon processors, but Huawei might have to come up with new chips that avoid using any ARM-owned technologies and this could prove to be a nearly impossible task. Would you still bet on Huawei if the ongoing bans stay in place? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
