Amidst the US ban and several big US-based tech companies cutting ties with the company and knowing future smartphones shipments sales would drop eventually — China-based multinational electronics maker Huawei isn’t stopping its new smartphone launches. The company had launched the trio of Nova 5 series smartphones in China, this week. Along with the new Nova 5 series the company had also unveiled its new Kirin 810 SoC, which is built on a 7nm architecture similar to its flagship Kirn 980 SoC, and also the first chipset to adapt to this process in the mid-range chipset segment.
Since the new Kirn 810 SoC is the latest mid-range chipset from Huawei, it comes directly in competition with the other powerful mid-range chipset from Qualcomm, i.e. — the Snapdragon 730 SoC. Antutu has compared both the in-house chipsets and the results came as a surprise since the new Kirin chipset has completely outperformed the Snapdragon chipset.
According to the new comparison from Antutu, the new Kirin 810 SoC powered Nova 5 has scored 237437 points on the whole, which appears to be 13% more than that of the Snapdragon 730 SoC. The Antutu report also suggests the new Kirin 810 SoC comes with an improvement of over 70% when compared to the predecessor Kirin 710 SoC. The GPU scores of the new K810 SoC also has proven that it’s 25% higher than the SD 710 SoC as well.
Going by the new Antutu scores, it is pretty evident that the new mid-range SoC from Huawei, which is the Kirin 810 SoC indeed outperforms the other powerful mid-range competition — the Snapdragon 730 SoC made by Qualcomm. As stated earlier, the Kirin 810 SoC is featured in the newly launched Huawei Nova smartphone, while the Pro version of it is powered by Huawei’s flagship HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC, which is also built on a 7nm process as well.
