Huawei finally made its next big chip known as the Kirin 970 official. Which was announced at the IFA event in Berlin and is targeted towards deep learning and AI as well. That should provide its users with a more improved user experience on their smartphones. While the first smartphone that will be equipped with this new Kirin 970 chip is going to be the upcoming Mate 10 Pro from Huawei.
Being a new chip the Huawei Kirin 970 is also made on a new 10nm manufacturing process. Which ensures up to 20 % better performance over its predecessor the Huawei Kirin 960. Though that is not the only thing that Huawei is marketing on their new chip. As the chip now also comes paired with an NPU, also known as (Neural Processing Unit). Which is basically responsible for handling different AI tasks. While for graphical processing power the Huawei Kirin 970 also comes paired with a new 12 core GPU. Huawei also thinks that AI should be a must feature on every upcoming smartphone now.
So what does the new Huawei Kirin 970 chip bring in terms of specs? Well inside the Huawei Kirin 970 there are a total of 8 cores. Where the first four cores are based on the Cortex A73 architecture. While the other four cores are designed on Cortex A53. Aside from that the Huawei Kirin 970 also runs on a top frequency of 2.8 GHz, with support for LPDDR4 RAM running at 1866 MHz.
The Huawei Kirin 970 will launch in October with Huawei’s upcoming two new smartphones. Which would include the Huawei Mate 10 and Huawei Mate 10 Pro. Both of which would offer the best that Huawei have to offer, including their new AI based Kirin 970 chip. Which should perform exceptionally well considering, Huawei smartphones have never seen any slowdowns in the past. Because it’s easy to optimize Android OS on one chip, rather than on multiple combinations.
