Benchmark shows Huawei's octa-core Kirin 920 CPU breathing down Snapdragon 805's neck

A benchmark of Huawei's latest SoC, theKirin 920, reveals its performance is comparable to that of Qualcomm'sSnapdragon 805. The octa-core chipset has four Cortex-A7 and fourCortex-A15 CPU cores operating in a big.LITTLEarrangement. We can't be sure whether they work in pairs, or Huawei opted for heterogeneous ("true" octa-core) processing.


It also has an integrated ARM Mali-T628 GPU, dual-channel DDR3800MHz RAM memory, LTE, support for 2560x1600 (WQXGA) resolutiondisplays and up to 32MP camera sensors.



Overall, this is a very impressiveconfiguration. It scored 37,363 in AnTuTu, ranking slightly below theyet unreleased Snapdragon 805, which scored 37,780. Benchmarking wascarried out with a Huawei H300 device that has a 1.3GHz Kirin 920CPU, 1080p display, 2GB RAM, and runs Android 4.4.2.



The supercharged chip could be featuredin the Huawei Ascend D3, which is the Chinese giant's alleged 2014flagship smartphone.
