Recently, Huawei announced its Mate 30 smartphone series with multiple 4G and 5G variants. Some of you might be curious to know the benchmark scores of Kirin 990 5G based smartphones because any of the 5G variants isn’t yet available in the market. Finally, a device with model number “HUAWEI LIO-AN00” has been surfaced on the Geekbench platform, which is considered one of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G variants.
Kirin 990 5G vs Snapdragon 855+
The device scores 3,851 points in single-core and 12,636 points in multi-core results on Geekbench. If we compare it with close competitor Snapdragon 855+, it outperforms with a measurable margin. The average scores of Snapdragon 855+ vary from 3,600 points in single-core and 11,000-11,300 points in the multi-core results. However, the gap isn’t big, but Kirin 990 5G appears to hold a slightly batter CPU performance based on the current Geekbench scores.
Kirin 990 vs Kirin 990 5G
Two recall, Huawei divides Kirin 990 chipset into two parts. One comes with only 4G support and lower CPU frequencies, whereas, another one is fully focused on 5G possessing overclocked CPU cores. Other differences between these two chipsets are an additional Big core on Kirin 990 5G of managing the AI task, and a better 7nm+ EUV node. Previously, we have managed to perceive Geekbench scores of standard Kirin 990 SoC. It scores 3,842 points in single-core and 11,644 points in multi-core results. The difference is not big, but still, the Kirin 990 5G concquores over its little sibling.
Considering the CPU, Kirin 990 packs tri-cluster octa-core Control Processing Uniti with two Cortex-A76 cores @2.86GHz, the other two Cortex-A76 cores @2.09GHz and four Cortex-A55 cores @1.86GHz. Kirin 990 5G has the same concept, but a slightly faster speed. The tri-cluster CPU on 990 5G incorporates 2 x Cortex-A76 cores @2.86GHz, 2x Cortex-A76 cores @2.36GHz and 4x Cortex-A55 cores @1.95GHz.
