The Nova 3i (Huawei INE-X2) has been put through a test on Geekbench. Thos gives the Frist glimpse of the performance numbers of the Kirin 710 and which is compared with the Snapdragon 710.
The Kirin 710 is a 12nm chip with a cluster design consisting of four Cortex-A73 cores clocked @ 2.2GHz and four A53 Cores in the bottom which is clocked @ 1.7GHz. While on the other hand the Snapdragon 710 is a 10nm chip with 2x Kryo 360 Gold clocked at 2.2GHz and 6x Kryo 360 Silver cores clocked at 1.7GHz, which are based on Cortex A-75 and Cortex A-55 respectively.
As expected Snapdragon takes over the single core performance over the Cortex A73 with a 20% boost. This was anyways promised by Snapdragon. But in the multi-core test, the difference is about 7% where it was expected that it should be more. Since A55 should be 18% faster than the A53, this percentage is without counting any improvements that Qualcomm may have made over ARM’s base design.
And as per the core composition of the Kirin 710, it includes a massive four cores in it whereas the Snapdragon 710 has only two. The usage of the number of cores depending DS upon the workload completely.
In this is the Snapdragon 710 has completely destroyed the Kirin 710 in the single core performance. But the poi t which is to be noted that Kirin 710 is a huge update over the Kirin 659 that Huawei used before for their mid-range phones
