The best in 5G chips! Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 + Huawei Kirin 990, see who is the strongest?

Qualcomm Snapdragon 865

In terms of performance and power consumption, the Snapdragon 865 adopts Samsung’s 7nm EUV process and adopts the latest semi-custom version of the A77 architecture. In terms of CPU frequency: the design of large, medium and small cores is still adopted, in which the main frequency of the large core is 2.84GHz, the main frequency of the medium core is 2.42GHz, the small core is 1.8GHz, and the GPU is upgraded to Adreno650.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 mobile platform also supports the latest LPDDR5 memory, and the highest frequency supports 2750MHz, so the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 configuration is very good. The most important feature of the 5G mobile platform is that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 is the first user to upgrade through the app store. GPU powered mobile platform. Bands up to 6GHz and mmWave are supported. Qualcomm’s new-generation 5G mobile platform can also support the effect of dynamic spectrum sharing and allow operators to deploy 5G networks directly on the 4G spectrum, greatly reducing network deployment costs. Supports non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA) networking modes, dynamic spectrum sharing (DSS), global 5G roaming, and supports multiple SIM cards. Beyond 5G connectivity, the Snapdragon 865 is redefining Wi-Fi 6 performance and the Bluetooth audio experience with the Qualcomm FastConnect 6800 mobile connectivity subsystem.Numerous Wi-Fi 6 feature innovations help users take full advantage of high speed (nearly 1.8Gbps) and low latency

Snapdragon 865’s ISP processing speed is as high as 2 billion pixels per second, and it supports new shooting features and functions. Users can shoot 4K HDR video with 1 billion colors, 8K video, or capture photos with up to 200 million pixels. With unlimited high-definition slow-motion video capture at 960 fps, users can also take full advantage of gigapixel processing speed to shoot slow-motion video, capturing every millisecond of detail.

The Snapdragon 865 is the most advanced 5G mobile platform so far, and the world’s first commercial baseband-to-antenna complete 5G solution, which can provide a peak downlink rate of up to 7.5 Gbps, and supports 5G PowerSave technology, Smart Transmit intelligent transmission technology, Wideband envelope tracking technology, Signal Boost signal enhancement technology, etc.

Huawei Kirin 990

Kirin 990 5G adopts 7nm+ EUV process, and integrates 5G Modem into SoC for the first time. The board-level area is 36% smaller than other solutions in the industry. It integrates 10.3 billion transistors on a chip the size of a fingernail, which is currently the largest number of transistors. The most complete and complex 5G SoC. Huawei has integrated the 5G baseband with the chip, and integrated 2G/3G/4G and 5G into one chip for the first time, achieving a true full Netcom; in terms of architecture, the Kirin 990 5G chip has a total of 8 cores, that is, 8 cores. 2 high-performance cores, 2 medium-performance cores, 4 low-performance cores, intelligent scheduling, and power consumption is greatly reduced by 58%. Compared with Qualcomm’s top Snapdragon 855 chip, the single-core performance is 10% higher and the multi-core performance is 9% higher.

The best way to reflect the strength of the Kirin 990 5G benchmark is of course in the use of 5G. Kirin 990 5G is the first to support 5G NSA/SA dual-mode, and it has been leading the industry at the time of its launch. However, when 5G dual-mode support has become the industry consensus, but it is still debated whether to support n79, Kirin 990 5G uses advanced 5G frequency bands. Support continues to lead the forefront: Kirin 990 5G has achieved full coverage of all frequency bands of domestic 5G operators, and continues to serve as the “benchmark” for the industry to catch up.

As the second half of the first year of 5G, major mobile phone manufacturers will definitely launch their 5G smartphones in the second half of this year. However, the key point lies in two parts. First, who can take the lead in launching products based on integrated 5G SoC chips with excellent user experience. Smartphone products; 2. How to sink the 5G experience to the mid-end or even low-end market. The release of the Kirin 990 5G chip undoubtedly shows us Huawei’s determination to do the first thing. At the same time, through the understanding of the Kirin 990 5G chip process, the author can also see the possibility of sinking this technology.
