Huawei launches Kirin 980, world's first commercial 7nm processor

Huawei Kirin 980 is the World’s First Commercial 7nm Chipset, To Power Mate 20 Series and Honor Magic 2

The Kirin 980 is not only the first 7nm processor in the world, it is also the first chipset with the new Cortex-A76 CPU cores; the first chipset with a dual-NPU; the first with the Mali-G76 GPU, the first with a Cat. Another new feature of the ISP is improved motion tracking. Now we officially know that the Mate Series will be unveiled in October - well, the regular Mate 20 and the Pro version, given that the Lite model already launched a few days ago.

Based on Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturer Company's (TSMC) 7nm process, Kirin 980 delivers 20 per cent improved SoC performance and 40 per cent more efficiency, said Huawei which surpassed Apple to become the second-largest global smartphone seller behind Samsung in the second quarter of this year. Yu says the Kirin 980 will outperform the Snapdragon 845 and use less power while doing it. As a result, the chip can be up to 40-percent more energy-efficient or deliver 20-percent better computational performance than the previous solution and should be significantly better than the now used Snapdragon 845 and Exynos 9810, though it remains to be seen how it fares against their upcoming successors. As seen with Huawei in recent times, the Kirin 980 boasts of numerous Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities.

Indians Acquire Josh Donaldson From Blue Jays
Given his injury history, it makes sense that they don't want to risk him accepting that offer and sticking around. After spending parts of four big-league seasons in Oakland, Donaldson had a monster first year with the Blue Jays.

In layman's terms - the technology used in the Kirin 980 SoC makes everything more efficient and faster. There is Huawei's Kirin 710 processor inside, paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of built-in storage.

For developers, the 980 supports common AI frameworks such as Caffee, Tensorflow and Tensorflow Lite. The idea is, like many less popular smartphone companies, that the Mate 20 Lite offers a premium smartphone experience without any of the annoyingly high pricetags associated with them. It wouldn't be announcing a new SoC this powerful for nothing. We're looking forward to getting our hands on the first Kirin 980-powered device when it arrives this October.

Nick Kyrgios receives on-court pep talk from US Open umpire
It was not just about How are you feeling? And a second-set pep talk from an umpire may have had something to do with it. Nick Kyrgios was struggling against Pierre-Hugues Herbert before a dramatic turnaround following a chat with the umpire.

This being 2018, Huawei is really leaning on AI as a selling point for the Mate 20 Lite: AI scene detection to automatically adjust camera settings, AI noise cancellation in phone calls, an AI shopping assistant that "eradicates the time-consuming task of online shopping", et cetera.

It's been a pretty big day for Huawei.
