Kirin 970 reaches 1.2Gbps Cat.18 Download speed – World’s Fastest

Kirin 970, the world’s first Artificial intelligence chip is ready to launch in Huawei Mate 10 on October 16. The SoC is expected to feature to 4 x A73 (2.4GHz) and 4 x A53 (1.80GHz) architecture. Moreover, it also undergoes the latest TMSC 10nm process. In addition to the

Coming to the point based on baseband, Kirin 970 is the first to reach 1.2 Gbps Cat.18 download speed and Cat.13 upstream.

According to Huawei official, recently, the company joined the German Rohde & Schwarz. They did a test to successfully achieve the highest 1.2Gbps download rate on the Kirin 970 platform.

HiSilicon vice president ‘Ai Wei’ said that the Huawei chip once again stood at the top in the LTE-A-Pro networking. The specs sheet mentioned below shows that the Kirin 970 peak also depends on the 4×4 MIMO (multi-user input and output) and 256QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) modulation.

Moreover, there’s no denying that the SoC supports 4.5G and Pre 5G.

At present, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 has the strongest baseband with Cat.16 1 Gbps but soon will be beaten by Kirin 970 Cat.18. Australia Telecom measured the best results till date which is 979Mbps download and 129Mbps upload.

On October 16 we will be able to experience the first Cat.18 level baseband. For now, we only have to do is anticipate.
