Kirin-980-2

Best of AI Gaming with GPU Turbo Technology

Mobile Gaming is taking the Gaming industry by storm and the manufacturers are introducing innovative features everyday to cater the accelerating needs and demands of the gaming industry. HUAWEI has always been introducing devices with the latest technology for gamers to reach their battle royale potential, by surviving the ever accelerating mobile gaming technology.

Last year Huawei proved to the world that On-Device AI is the future of AI in smartphones with its Neural Processing Unit (NPU). This year Huawei takes this a step further. With the help of Dual NPU and the latest GPU Mali-G76 MP10the mobile gaming experience has elevated to the next level.

In 2018 HUAWEI introduced the Kirin 980, a high performance mobile AI chipset fabricated on a 7nm process. This chipset is the world’s first dual NPU design, and the world’s first chip to support LTE Cat.21, provides users with impressive mobile performance.

As the world’s first commercial SoC manufactured with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturer Company’s (TSMC), Kirin 980 elevates the On-Device AI experience with greater processing power and intelligence. It makes the performance 22% better, and 32% less power consuming compared to many other chipsets in the market.

The Kirin 980 integrates 6.9 billion transistors in an area of less than 1 square centimeter which is a 1.6x fold increase in density to empower better performance. This chipset is the first Cortex-A76 based in the world and has a 75% improvement in single core performance. The Kirin 980 also includes the world’s first commercial use GPUMali-G76 MP10performance is improved by 46%. The LPDDR4X memory operates at speeds up to 2133 MHz The fourth-generation ISP utilizes a multi-pass noise reduction to capture quality images and preserve important details. This ISP also has a dedicated video pipeline to effectively improve video clarity and reduce shooting delays by 33%.

Kirin 980’s efficient performance will be driven by these faster switching transistors and the power efficiency will be driven by the lower resistance and therefore lower current requirement for switching the transistors. To add to the many benefits of a denser chip, due to the less power the chip generates, less heat will be generated from the device, so that the gamers can play for a longer period, without the device getting heated.

The new and improved GPU Turbo 2.0 software mused with Kirin 980 is well equipped to handle multitasking and relatively heavy usage too. The games are loaded quickly and all the stunts, takedowns, and shockwaves can be pulled off without the device stuttering for even a moment.

The all new GPUMali-G76 accelerating update greatly improves the GPU performance and efficiency of the device.It lets the performance feel quite smooth, with apps taking minimal amounts of time to load up and remaining in memory even when a number of demanding games are opened right after.The technology has the capability to handle any challenge you present at it with relative ease.

“This latest technology will allow users to enjoy heavy mobile gaming experience to the best with the help of AI, ensuring real-time image and sound recognition, and intelligent game vibrations. It will boost performance by 46 percent while increasing the power efficiency by around 178 percent,” said Mr. Peter Liuyi Country Manager Huawei Device.

Connectivity and Battery efficiency is an important factor in a gamers’ life, especially someone who is always on the road. Speaking about the battery efficiency with Kirin 980, not all GPU and CPU cores are needed to render the next frame of the graphical details, meaning that fewer system resources will be used up all the time, allowing better efficiency. The Kirin 980 is the first to support LTE Cat.21 which supports the fastest downlink at 1.4 Gbps and offers a stable connection in congested areas like subways or high-speed rails. With the Hi1103, it supports a theoretical peak download speed of 1.7 Gbps and 160 MHz bandwidth, which is 1.7x the industry level. The GPS is supported by industry leading L1 + L5 dual frequency ultra-precise positioning to give you a more accurate target location when using map navigation, even in complex terrains.

The GPU Mali-G76 MP10dramatically increases the graphics processing efficiency of smartphones, thereby allowing devices to run graphically intensive games without significantly affecting battery life.

In Sri Lanka, HUAWEI has succeeded in securing the number one position in Smartphone sales according to recent GfK reports. Poised as the most preferred Smartphone brand among Sri Lankan consumers, HUAWEI aims to enhance the lifestyle of all consumers by offering the best quality state of the art smart phones at an attractive price.
