rip they didn't use the latest tech probably because of the US ban. ie a77 and g77
What's it with chinese brands and over hyping everything? I use Huawei phones and the kirin 980 gpu matches sd 835 at best...just wait for mate 30 series to lunch and watch how Antutu will start the score at 1000 before they drop it back to around 300..
Huaweiz, 06 Sep 2019This should have been the Kirin 985 lolYep. A bit improved process, AI NPU and integrated 5G NSA (half 5G) are the only changes made. That's not really a next-gen SoC at this point. Just a buzzword overload
Asphalt-nation, 06 Sep 2019You don't understand
This CPU is great, and it's a perfect equivalent to the S855. BUT the S8... moreSD855 "life cycle is over", are you serious ? ? ? ... what more do you need from smartphone , to levitate around you in hands free mode ? , even SD865 won't support that ... power efficiency is key here and let's hope K990 delivers.
Kirin 990 will be at the top for about 4 months maybe 5.
And then snapdragon will be at the top for 7-8 months.
I do commend Huawei they release it at the end of the year so all their fanboys can say its the best chip of 2018 or 2018 and it seems to work :D
Huawei tries to up their game but just after 4-5 months it becomes almost outdated because Samsung and Snapdragon release their next gen chips. For now, it seems pretty great.
MadMel, 06 Sep 2019did you find something here that is not "proper" ? , give credit where credit is due.You don't understand
This CPU is great, and it's a perfect equivalent to the S855. BUT the S855 lifecycle is over.
Next year, all Huawei phones will have that K990. And all others phones will have the S865. Which means, huawei still one year late in the CPU game.
yogivansh, 06 Sep 2019benchmarks don't reflects real world performance. Yes it does, especially stress test benchmark really like real world usage
optimization is what we needed rather that these resource hungry chip sets.
companies should release chip sets in a gap of 3 years so that the manufacturers can squeeze out everything from the existing chip sets.
Asphalt-nation, 06 Sep 2019Then in 2 months Qualcomm unveil the S865 that smash the 990, and all the 2020 Huawei phones a... moredid you find something here that is not "proper" ? , give credit where credit is due.
So to say per least, this one is as powerful as the SD855+, since the advantages of this Kirin 990 to the SD855 in terms of power is pretty much identical to the SD855+.
In conclusion, Huawei basically made a Kirin version of the SD855+, and added some new things, some of which are going to be done 6 months later by Qualcomm, but with far better engineering instead.
But im concert about the video stabilisation.
Then in 2 months Qualcomm unveil the S865 that smash the 990, and all the 2020 Huawei phones are officially down, performance wise
Kevin T, 06 Sep 2019WHY NO A77 & MALI G77? Looks like no one is trying to push the performances forward lack... moreWait what? If this 5G integrated chip isn't competition, then I dunno what is. Maybe there was a shortage of A77 chips? Maybe they'll improve it later with 5nm, and add the A77 chips? There are many possibilities. I'll wait for the new Snapdragon 865 to be unveiled later this year. Hopefully they will have A77 chips and 7nm+ process.
