Benchmark tests reveal huge improvement for the Kirin 950 chipset's GPU
Based on a series of benchmark tests, it would appear that the Huawei Mate 8 is going to be a darn good gaming device. Huawei's new high-end phone is expected to be unveiled on November 26th, and will be powered by the recently introduced Kirin 950 chipset. Which means that the device will be counting on the Mali-T880MP4 GPU to crunch the graphics.

So how does the Mali T-880 compare to the Mali-T628? That is the graphics processor found on the Kirin 935 chipset found under the hood of the Huawei Mate S, the most recently released Mate model. For the benchmark tests, the newer GPU was able to double the frames rate and the GFlops compared to its predecessor. So when it comes to graphics, the Mate 8 should be able to seriously outperform the Mate S.

Besides the Mali-T880 GPU, the Kirin 950 SoC  comes with four 2.53GHz Cortex-A72 cores to handle tasks that require power and strength. The remaining four 1.8GHz Cortex-A53 cores handle light housekeeping in the big.LITTLE architecture used for the chip. The Kirin 950, which is designed by Huawei, is actually produced by TSMC using its 16nm FinFET process. The chip includes a modem offering Cat.6 LTE speeds.

Thanks for the tip!
