HiSilicon Kirin 710A vs Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 4G

HiSilicon Kirin 710A

► remove from comparison HiSilicon Kirin 710A

The HiSilicon Kirin 710A is a ARM-based mid-range Octa-Core-SoC for Android based smartphones and tablets. It is based on the Kirin 710, but manufactured in 14nm FinFET at SMIC (China) versus the TSMC in 12nm. It was announced mid 2020 and contains 8 processor cores (4x Cortex-A73 at up to 2 GHz, 4x Cortex-A53 at up to 1.7 GHz, BigLITTLE), an ARM Mali G51 MP4, a dual-channel LPDDR4 memory controller and a LTE radio (600 Mbps down, 150 Mbps up). Therefore, the CPU part is similar to the Kirin 960 and 970 (both higher clocked), but the graphics card is a lot slower. 

Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 4G

► remove from comparison Qualcomm SD 680

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 is a mid-range ARM-based SoC largely found on Android tablets and smartphones. It features 8 Kryo 265 cores (custom design, 64-Bit capable) that are divided in two clusters. A fast cluster of four cores with up to 2.4 GHz (Kryo 265 Gold - Cortex-A73 derivate) and a power saving efficiency cluster with up to 1.8 GHz (Kryo 265 Silver - Cortex A53 derivate). Both clusters can also be used together. Compared to the older Snapdragon 665, the clock speeds are higher.

In addition to the 8 CPU cores, the SoC integrates a mid range Adreno 610 GPU with a LPDDR4 memory controller (dual-channel)  and supports Wi-Fi (802.11ac + MIMO, max. 867 Mbps), Bluetooth 5, and LTE (X11 LTE modem with up to 390 Mbps download).

The SoC is produced in 6nm (compared to the older 11nm LPP process of the similar Snapdragon 665).
