Huawei Kirin 950 tops GeekBench score chart, specs confirmed
Huawei Kirin 935 turned out quite capable powering the latest P8 and P8lite smartphones. But this is not the best Huawei has to offer. Earlier this year we reported that Kirin 940 and Kirin 950 chips are already in the making and we should see them embedded in devices later this year.
And while we are still waiting for the Kirin 940 chip to premiere on the Huawei's next big thing - probably the Huawei Mate 7S, we can now shed some light on the flagship Kirin 950.
The company's best chipset to date will utilize an octa-core processor with 4x Cortex-A72 at 2.4GHz and 4x Cortex-A57. The GPU in charge of graphics will be a Mali-T880 unit and the SoC will support LPDDR4 RAM.
Thanks to the CPU upgrade the Kirin 950 scores about 6,000 points at the multi-core Geekbench 3 test, which is about 20% more than the Exynos 7420 inside the top-tier Galaxy lineup. The single-core performance is about 1,900 points, which is 30% better than the single-core result of the Exynos 7420.
The Kirin 950 will most probably premiere on the Huawei Mate 8, which has been reportedly delayed for early next year. Still, we expect the upcoming Mate 7S to do impressively well with its Kirin 940 - an octa-core CPU with 4x Cortex-A72 at 2.2GHz and 4x Cortex-A53, Mali-T860 GPU and LPDDR4 RAM.
Note that the source of the screenshot brought us false information once a few days ago, so we'd take the whole score topping thing with a healthy pinch of salt.
You have no idea what you're talking about.
