Huawei MatePad Pro 12.6 Tablet review: High-end tablet without Google
HiSilicon Kirin 9000E | ARM Mali-G78 MP22 | 12.60" | 609 g
The HiSilicon Kirin 9000E is an ARM based high-end octa-core SoC for smartphones and tablet, which was introduced with the Huawei MatePad Pro. It integrates eight CPU cores in three clusters. A single high performance ARM Cortex-A77 cores with up to 3.13 GHz for fast single core performance. Three more performance cores (same Cortex-A77 architecture) with up to 2.54 GHz and four efficiency cores based on the ARM Cortex-A55 architecture with up to 2.05 GHz. All 8 cores can be used at once (big.LITTLE).
The difference to the similar Kirin 9000 is the integrated graphics card, which features only 22 of the 24 clusters (ARM Mali-G78 MP22).
For AI acceleration (NPU), the Kirin 9000 integrates the Da Vinci Architecture 2.0 (2 * Ascend Lite and 1 * Ascend Tiny). Huawei specifies 8 MB of system cache (most likely shared for CPU, GPU and AI) and can access LPDDR4X and LPDDR5 main memory. The integrated 5G modem supports SA&NSA, Sub-6G and mmWave. WiFi 6 including VHT160 and Bluetooth 5.2 are also integrated in the chip.
The Kirin 9000 is produced at TSMC in the modern 5nm process.
