Huawei unveils octa-core Kirin 620 SoC
Huawei unveiled a new chip yesterday, namely the eight-core Kirin 620. This 64-bit processor uses eight Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.2 GHz, so one of its future competitors will be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410.
Huawei Kirin 620 offers the following specs and features:
The Kirin 620 should provide about the same amount of processing power as the Qualcomm Dragon 410 which is already on the market. They both use the same Cortex-A53 core running at the same frequency although Huawei's chip has four extra cores. On the other hand, Qualcomm's SoC features Adreno 306 graphics, a better choice than the Mali-450 MP4.
There are no benchmark results available yet and Huawei did not mention anything about the first devices that will use the new octa-core Kirin 620 SoC.
