Huawei Mate 20 Geekbench score impresses
Cortex-A76 doing the magic
Huawei is the first company after Apple to mass produce the 7nm smartphone chip and this will be miles apart from the previous Kirin 970. The combination of Cortex-A76 and Cortex-A55 cores will do the magic.
Let's focus on two record-breaking scores, the Geekbench 4 and Antutu. In Antutu, the Huawei Mate 20 phone managed to score more than 310,000, which beats the best Snapdragon 845 phones today. According to another leak, another variant can score close to 350,000, which is about the same as Apple’s flagship smartphones.
Apple is still the leader in this and many other benchmarks, due to its space commitment on the silicon side. In layman's terms, one can say that Apple has 1/4th, if not even 1/3rd, of a silicon space dedicated to CPU and GPU, compared to the Kirin or Snapdragon. The reason is rather simple, Apple still uses two chips, one is the application processor while the other is the modem.
Huawei Mate 10 from a year ago was designed around Cortex-A73 cores and ended significantly slower than the competition with Cortex-A75 cores in early 2018. It was all about the time to market you could imply, but the fact that Huawei got to the latest generation cores and managed to finish the chip and mass ship it late October/early-November is quite impressive.
This is where the speed is coming from as the Cortex-A76, according to ARM, can even compare with the Core i5-7000 generation from Intel, of course at the right TDP. The Geekbench score shows one important trend. The single-thread performance has increased tremendously. Let's not forget the Cortex-A55 is some 50 percent better compared to the Cortex-A53 cores that were widely used as little cores in big performance SoCs.
