It even has a higher score than the Kirin 970
Huawei is serious with its claims that its new 7nm Kirin 810 processor is a significant upgrade over last year’s Kirin 710: AnTuTu revealed its findings on the new processor, and it is quite powerful.
Using the higher-tier variant of the Nova 5, the Kirin 810 scored over 237k in AnTuTu. That is roughly 100k higher than the scores obtained with any Kirin 710-based phone. With such score, the Kirin 810 is better than Huawei’s 2017 flagship Kirin 970—the processor found on the Mate 20 and P20 series phones scored around 212k in AnTuTu.
Compared to its closest rival—Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 730—the Kirin 810 scored better than Qualcomm’s offering, especially in the GPU sub-category. This is noteworthy, as it gives is a rough idea of the Mali-G52 MP6 GPU’s capabilities paired with Huawei’s in-house DaVinci NPU.
For the CPU part, the Kirin 810 comes with two Cortex-A76 cores and six Cortex-A55 cores.
