Kirin 820 5G Introduction
Honor Mobile officially released the new Honor 30S, which will be equipped with Kirin 820 5G SoC for the first time with the same 5G Modem as the Kirin 990. Honor always emphasized that Kirin 820 has a flagship 5G experience, leading both in uploading / downloading and searching for multi-dimensional experiences. The performance is also very strong, and the gaming experience with Mali-G57 GPU is very smooth.
As the latest product of the Kirin family, the Kirin 820 5G SoC uses the industry’s most advanced 7-nanometer process. The transistor density per unit area is higher. Compared with the 8-nanometer process, Kirin 820 improves energy efficiency by 20% and transistor density by 50%.
The part of the Kirin 820 CPU powered by the Honor 30S consists of a 2.36GHz A76 large core + 3 × 2.2GHz A76 medium cores + 4 × 1.8GHz A55 small cores, which improves performance (comparing with Kirin 810) by 27%; using Mali-G57 6-core GPU, graphics Ability increased by 38%, supporting GPU Turbo and Kirin Gaming + 2.0; newly upgraded Huawei self-developed NPU, AI performance increased by 73%; Kirin ISP 5.0, the same Kirin 990, supports BM3D SLR image noise reduction and video dual-domain noise reduction.
The Kirin 820 chip also upgrades Kirin Gaming + technology, supports AI frequency modulation scheduling technology during large mobile games, can reasonably allocate CPU and memory resources to work with GPU, and adds game-related process optimization technology to improve the experience during the game. In addition, Kirin Gaming + 2.0 technology of Kirin 820 chip also supports frame rate calculation, HDR10 special effects, etc. These technologies can make the experience during the game more realistic and smooth.
Honor 30S has the same 5G capability as Kirin 990, supports 5G SA / NSA dual-mode five-frequency full Netcom + smart dual card, and has a good performance in network search, uplink / downlink speed, and dual card experience. Here is difference between Kirin 820 and 810.
