The OpenCL score of the Kirin 9000 is 6430 points. It is worth noting that the GPU of the Kirin 9000 is Mali-G78. The latter comes with 24 sets of computing units.
In May of this year, ARM launched the Mali G78 GPU, which has a performance increase of 25% compared with the previous generation G77. According to the manufacturer, 15% of the 25% performance improvement of the Mali G78 GPU comes from the 5nm process. And the rest comes from internal optimization. The addition of the 5nm process also reduces the size of the chip. The company also say that the Mali G78 GPU brings a 10% energy efficiency improvement and a 15% machine learning performance improvement.
The Mali G78 GPU uses a Valhall architecture and supports up to 24 cores. There is also an 18-core variant. However, this is a big move in comparison to the previous generation G77 with 16 cores. In terms of game performance, the 24-core asynchronous performance exceeds 28% of the 18-core performance.
As for the phone itself, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro uses a 6.76-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2772×1344 and a pixel density of 456 PPI. In terms of configuration, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro sports a 5nm process Kirin 9000 SoC. The CPU has 8 cores, including 4 Cortex-A55 (2.04 GHz), three A77 (2.54 GHz) and a high-frequency A77 (3.13 GHz).
The Huawei Mate 40 series global conference is scheduled for October 22. At this event, we will see not only the Mate 40 but many other products as well.
