Huawei recently launched another powerful handset with the title – Nova 3i. The new Nova 3i features Huawei’s new Hisilicon Kirin 710 chipset. The GeekBench featured the phone under the model number – Huawei INE-X2, for the regular benchmark testing. Let’s have a look.

The new Hisilicon Kirin 710 is an octa-core chipset built on a 12nm wafer, and it features 4x Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.2GHz and 4x Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.7GHz.

SINGLE-CORE TEST:

The Kirin 710 polled 1601 points in GeekBench’s single-core tests.

MULTI-CORE TEST:

Whereas, on the multi-core test it garnered a whopping 5457 points. Comparing this to other chipsets in the same categories, like the Snapdragon 660, and Snapdragon 710, we notice some considerable differences.

KIRIN 710 VS OTHERS

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710 chipset is a 10nm chipset with 2x Kryo 360 Gold (2.2GHz) and 6x Kryo 360 Silver cores (1.7GHz). The company’s express chipsets are based on Cortex-A75 and A55, respectively. With a single-core test score of 1875 and a multi-core test score of 5886 points, the SDM710 performs better than Kirin 710. But then, GeekBench result doesn’t reflect the actual real-life performance 100 per cent.

The Kirin 710 GeekBench score is slightly higher than that of Qualcomm’s premium mid-range Snapdragon 660 chipset on the single core test (1599 points) while on the multi-core test, Snapdragon 660’s score of 5639 surpasses that of Huawei’s mid-range Kirin 710 chip.

The comparison of the Kirin 710 chip to its predecessor 659, showed some satisfactory results. The 710 is a massive upgrade over its predecessor 659 which scored 909 points on the single-core test and in multi-core test, it recorded a score of 3159 points. The new GeekBench core for the 710 almost doubles that of its predecessor both on the single-core and multi-core tests. Thus, performance is expected to be spot-on.
