Honor, the mobile phone manufacturer at Huawei, shared the AI Benchmark test results of the Kirin 985 chipset, which is expected to be introduced on April 15. Kirin 985 took third place in the ranking shared in Weibo.
Chinese technology giant Huawei has introduced the Kirin 820 chipset that will take place in mid-range devices with the flagship processor Kirin 990 used in the Mate 30 and P40 series over the past year. Continuing its efforts in chip production, the company has now confirmed claims made about Kirin 985 recently.
Kirin 985, written and drawn about for a while, first appeared in December 2018, according to rumors. In the rumors of last year, it was said that the chipset will be released with the Huawei P30. However, Kirin also stated that 985 will be put into mass production by TSMC in the second half of 2019. After all these claims, rumors began to erupt that mass production was taken in the third quarter of 2019.
Kirin 985 has passed many flagship processors in the AI Benchmark test:
To summarize, Kirin 985 has been busy with the industry agenda for a long time, but we couldn’t see it, but the sharing by a Honor manager today confirmed the presence of the chipset. In the sharing made in Weibo, the popular social media site of China, the list of Kirin 985 ranked 3rd in the chipset artificial intelligence comparison ranking was shown.
In the shared benchmarking, the Snapdragon 865 chipset ranked 8th, while the Snapdragon 855 Plus ranked 9th, and the Unisoc Tiger 710 ranked 10th. On the other hand, there is the Exynos 990 chipset in Samsung’s Galaxy S20 family at the 11th place in the list. When we come to the top three in artificial intelligence comparisons, the chipsets in the list are Kirin 990, MediaTek Dimensity 100 and Kirin 985 respectively.
The shared screenshot shows that the eight-core Kirin 985 is far below Kirin 990, but better than other chipsets like the Kirin 820. The chipset, which has a single Cortex A76 core at 2.58 GHz, also has 3 Cortex A76 cores each at 2.4 GHz and 4 Cortex A55 cores each at 1.84 GHz.
