After AnTuTu, Master Lu also announced the performance rankings of new Android phones released in October. The list shows that the performance of the Huawei Mate 40 Pro+ is the best. Then, it is followed by the Mate 40 Pro. By the way, another Chinese phone, the Redmi K30S Ultra ranked third.
Master Lu said that the performance of the Kirin 9000 based on the 5nm process has improved significantly. The Huawei Mate 40 Pro+ with this chip won the October new machine performance list with a score of more than 900,000 points.
9 out of 13 new phones released last month are flagship models. Except for the Kirin 9000 series, most of them are Snapdragon 865 models. Since the improvement of the Snapdragon 865 Plus is not large in comparison, most of the flagships launched in the second half of the year still chose the Snapdragon 865.
Anyways, the Kirin 9000 series includes two models, the Kirin 9000 and the Kirin 9000E. The Huawei Mate 40 with the Kirin 9000E has not yet collected data, and the performance is unknown.
Kirin 9000 Parameters
The Kirin 9000 adopts an octa-core design and uses a 5nm manufacturing process. It has a 3.13GHz A77 super core, three 2.54GHz A77 large cores, and four 2.05GHz A55 energy efficiency cores. The GPU is a 24-core Mali-G78. NPU is designed with dual large cores and one small core.
For comparison, the highest frequency of the Snapdragon 865 Plus is 3.1GHz. The frequency of 8 cores is lower than that of the Kirin 9000.
In terms of the total performance score of Master Lu, Huawei Mate 40 Pro+ has reached a new height of 900K, which has beaten other players. Taking the third-ranked Redmi K30S Ultra as an example, the total score is close to 830,000, which is nearly 70,000 points lower than the Kirin 9000.
Interestingly, as soon as the Kirin 9000 achieved Android performance, the next-generation Qualcomm flagship processor, the Snapdragon 875, emerged. The data center of Master Lu included a Snapdragon 875 engineering test machine. The overall performance of this test machine was 899,401 points, and the total score of CPU+GPU reached 675494 points.
The Kirin 9000 CPU+GPU scored around 620,000 points, while the CPU+GPU performance of the previous generation Snapdragon 865 and 865 Plus is generally only around 570,000 points.
