HiSilicon Kirin 910 vs Broadcom BCM21664T vs Marvell PXA986

HiSilicon Kirin 910

► remove

The HiSilicon Kirin 910 is an ARM based quad core SoC for Android smartphones and tablets. As HiSilicon is fully owned by Huawei, the chip is mostly used in Huawei models like the MediaPad X1, P6 S, MediaPad M1 and Honor 3C 4G). The SoC integrates four Cortex-A9 cores (at 1.6 GHz max.), a ARM Mali-450 MP4 GPU (at 533 MHz), a 32-bit single-channel LPDDR3-1600 memory controller (533 MHz) and a LTE Cat. 4 radio. The similar named HiSilicon Kirin 910T is a 200 MHz higher clocked (CPU) version.

At the time of announcement in mid 2014, the CPU performance is in the mid-range of smartphone and tablet SoCs. The power consumption is a bit higher than usual, as the CPU cores are rather high clocked.

Broadcom BCM21664T

► remove Broadcom BCM21664T

The Broadcom BCM21664T is an ARM based entry-level SoC for smartphones that integrates two Cortex-A9 CPU cores clocked at up to 1.2 GHz and a HSPA+ modem with support for 21 Mbps HSDPA and 5.8 Mbps HSUPA. Furthermore, a VideoCore-IV GPU and a video decoder (H.264 1080p capable) and encoder (720p) are built into the SoC.

Marvell PXA986

► remove Marvell Technology Group PXA986

The Marvell PXA986 is an ARM based dual-core SoC for smartphones and tablets (mostly Android based). It contains two Cortex-A9 CPU cores usually clocked around 1.2 GHz and a Vivante GC1000 graphics card. The integrated video processor is able to handle 720p30 content in H.263, H.264 BP and MPEG4 SP encoding. Furthermore, a GSM/EDGE/WCDMA/HSDPA radio is included in the chip.
