Huawei Kirin 920 benchmarked, beats Snapdragon 801
Huawei’s clearly not one to be trifled with when it comes to mobile processors. The company’s upcoming homebrewed 8-core chipset, dubbed as the Kirin 920, has been spotted on AnTuTu Benchmark Test and has given its rivals a good run for their money.
The yet-to-released processor notched a 37,363 score on the aforementioned benchmark tool, only a couple of hundreds below the formidable Snapdragon 805 and only spots below the two variants of the NVidia Tegra K1.
As for the specifics, the Huawei Kirin 920 utilizes ARM big.LITTLE architecture and it comprises of two quad-core processors namely Cortex-A53 and Cortex-A58. It’s backed by a Mali-628MP4 GPU and supports dual-channel 800MHz DDR3 RAM.
It’s still uncertain though if the company will implement HMP (Heterogeneous Multi-Processing) or similar technology in order for their chipset to run on all eights.
Other features of the Kirin 920 include support for WQXGA (2560×1600) display, 32-megapixel camera sensor and 4G/LTE connectivity.
