2019 was a great year for technology, not only because we saw the birth of large smart phones and devices, but also because Qualcomm surprised us with the launch of Snapdragon 765 and Snapdragon 765G processors. Although it proved to have incredible specifications, many users compared it with the processor launched by Huawei, Kirin 810 and, because of that, today we are going to compare these two high-power processors, to see who is the winner in this duel of Snapdragon 765G vs Kirin 810.
Snapdragon 765G vs Kirin 810 – Specs Sheet Comparison
1x Kryo 475 Prime (Cortex-A76) a 2.4 GHz 1x Kryo 475 Gold (Cortex-A76) a 2.2 GHz 6x Kryo 475 Silver (Cortex-A55) a 1.8 GHz
2x Cortex-A76 a 2.27 GHz 6x Cortex-A55 a 1.88 GHz
LPDDR4X a 2133 MHz
LPDDR4X a 2133 MHz
Snapdragon 765G vs Kirin 810 – CPU
First, we will make a comparison of the CPUs of these two processors. The Snapdragon 765G uses a Kryo 475 CPU based on a seemingly odd tri-cluster design (1+1+6) which is new in this 7 series. It hasn’t moved to Cortex A77 but consists of the one high-performance processor which is the new Kryo Prime Cortex A76 running at a speed of 2.4GHz, another Cortex A76 but based on Kryo Gold running at a speed of 2.2GHz and six energy-efficient Cortex A55 cores running at a speed of 1.8GHz.
That being said, Kirin 810, the just-released SoC from Huawei product which was released months ago is based on the latest TSMC’s 7nm process. Furthermore, speaking about its core configuration, this processor has an octa-core configuration with four Cortex A76 cores clocked at a speed of 2.27GHz and another set of Cortex A55 cores clocked at a speed of 1.88GHz.
Winner: Snapdragon 765G
Snapdragon 765G vs Kirin 810 – GPU
Now let’s talk about their GPUs, and in relation to this, the Snapdragon 765G has upgraded its GPU from Adreno 618 to 620. Moreover, it’s overclocked as well compared to the standard Snapdragon 765 (18% better graphics). The 765G’s Adreno 620 GPU has 38% better performance than the Adreno 618 in the 730. And don’t forget about the gaming optimizations done for this SoC.
On the other hand, speaking about the Kirin 810, the processor comes along with a dedicated NPU and also has a custom Mali-G52 MP6 GPU based on a 16nm process and 850MHz frequency. Moreover, Mali-G52 MP6 outperforms the Adreno 618 in the SD730 with up to 44% higher frame rates. The credit here also goes to the new Huawei HiAI 2.0 technology which has much better game optimizations at both software and hardware level in comparison to their TurboBoost 2.0.
Winner: Kirin 810
Snapdragon 765G vs Kirin 810 – Other Features
Having talked about the CPU and GPU that is inside these powerful processors, we will talk about other features that these two great ones give us. In the connectivity department, the Snapdragon 765G supports 5G networking and is the first upper-mid SoC to provide this networking. This processor integrates the X52 modem (internal) wich gives 5G download up to 3.7 Gbit/s and upload up to 1.6 Gbit/s. Moreover, it also supports Global 5G networking consisting of sub-6 GHz in Europe and Asia and mmWave 5G in the US. Also, it has photographic support for sensors up to 192 megapixels.
With that said, the Kirin 810 has compatibility with dual VoLTE, which at least ensures the power to use up to two 4G networks. It is also noteworthy to highlight the IVP + ISP technology for the capture of photos, which defines much better the colors and reduces the environmental noise, besides that this whole process is relatively faster, although it will be necessary to see it in action in the future Nova 5. Another amazing feature of the Kirin 810 is the artificial intelligence featured inside the new SoCs which after release became a major trend because of the performance increase and intelligence it offered.
Concluding this Snapdragon 765G vs Kirin 810 comparison, it depends on the user to select the processor that best suits its needs. Having said that, and guided by this comparison, it can be seen that the Snapdragon 765G works slightly in a better way compared to the Kirin 810, but as we always say, it all depends on the tastes and needs of the user. Moreover, it also depends on the option of selecting 5G networking or 4G networking.
