A great chipset from Huawei.
Nova 3i is already in my wishlist!
And how it stacks against MediaTek's highest offerings, the Helio P60?
Great upgrade Huawei
Thanks for all the replies, unfortunately i am not so satisfied with what Nova 3i can afford, its notch is too big and it doesnt have type c port, i wanted to eliminate it from my choice in the part where i said i want it to look like P20 Lite, and it also has worse cams than P20. Also i am very satisfied with what my P9 Lite offered me and i will just keep up with Huawei, premium qulaity phones. And i also dont like the design of the Mi8 SE. I hope for the Mate 20 Lite to be the right choice for me this year. It dont have to have notch, i will be satisfied if it could just bring better cameras than P20 Lite and Kirin 710.
Jord.jr, 23 Jul 2018Kirin 710 is comparable to SDM 660, not SDM 710. Still, SD660 isn't a bad chip.
According to the results the difference isn't huge (not small either).
We'll have to wait and see the gpu performance and power consumption to get the whole picture.
Still for huawei fans the 710 is a well deserved upgrade over the, now zombie, 659
Jord.jr, 23 Jul 2018Kirin 710 is comparable to SDM 660, not SDM 710. It's is very similar in real life performance
Jord.jr, 23 Jul 2018Kirin 710 is comparable to SDM 660, not SDM 710. why not? having the new kirin named 710, it's just make sense that it's compared to sd 710 which even came first
Kirin 710 is comparable to SDM 660, not SDM 710.
I bet the GPU difference is much bigger and in Snapdragon's favor.
And how far behind is kirin in gpu
I think Kirin 710 is a starter only.Huawei will giving 720,730 and more on future.No need wait for many years.
And the most important test?
The GPU one?
expect Kirin 659 to enter the US$150 price range....
Now benchmark the GPU, that's where the real difference is.
I litteraly just want a phone with look like P20 Lite (exactly, same notch size and type c), cameras like P20 and Kirin 710.
At 300$ if possible :)
"if, say, a game needs more than two threads then some will have to run on the slower Silver cores"
OGL - EGLS isn't capable using more than a SMP 2, Vulkan can & do it true FP instructions. While FP scales good enough the integer SMP scaling is horrible bad. A55 is capable of delivering 75% FP (VFP or NEON) performance using 5x less power compared to similar clocked A75. Same goes for everything else regarding SMP scaling. So 98% of the times you don't need more than two big cores and you never will.
