HiSilicon Kirin 9000:

Over the last few years, HiSilicon Kirin is leading in the mobiles chip market, but in 2020 the company has gone so far with record-breaking new chipsets. We’ve seen some amazing chipsets like HiSilicon Kirin 990, HiSilicon Kirin 9000E which tops the AnTuTu 9 benchmarks, HiSilicon Kirin 990 was launched in Huawei Mate 40. Now we have the full specs and full complete details of the HiSilicon Kirin 9000.

AnTuTu 9:

CPU 194527
GPU 280796
Memory 146761
UX 140303
Total score 759450

HiSilicon Kirin 9000 shows the best AnTuTu 9 scores. We can see the big jump in the GPU performance. The total performance of the GPU is 280796, which is slower than the Snapdragon 888 Plus. The CPU also shows one of the best scores. It is 194527 which is a bit slower than the Snapdragon 888 Plus. The memory scores also show a significant boost. Kirin 9000 memory is faster than Snapdragon 888, Snapdragon 888 Plus. The memory scores are 146761. The Ux is also showing one of the best performances. It is 140303, which is faster than Snapdragon 888, Snapdragon 888 Plus. Total scores are above 759450. It will depend on which smartphones manufacturers using this chipset with which type of ram. Kirin 9000 is considerably gaining a performance boost and beating every processor in the Flagship category. It is one of the fastest processors from the HiSilicon Kirin. It’s fast, efficient, and powerful.

Geekbench 5:

Single-Core Score 1044
Multi-Core Score 3689

The single-core scores show the best performance in this smartphone mid-range category lineup. The single-core scores are 1044. And the multi-core scores are 3689 which is also good at this point.


Architecture 1x 3.13 GHz – Cortex-A77
3x 2.54 GHz – Cortex-A77
4x 2.05 GHz – Cortex-A55
Cores 8
Frequency 3130 MHz
Instruction set ARMv8.2-A
Process 5 nanometers
Transistor count 15.3 billion

HiSilicon Kirin 9000 launched with the Big 1 core of Cortex-A77 which is an ultra-high performance core that is clocked on 3.13 GHz. 3 other cores of Cortex A77 are high-performance cores that are clocked on 2.54GHz. The other 4 cores is based on Cortex-A55 which is a power efficiency core. There is a little disappointment that why they haven’t used the Cortex A78 or X1. But the Cortex-A77 also has the best speeds and good set instruction architecture. There are a total of 8 cores with a boost clock of 3.13 GHz. Kirin 9000 has the latest set of instruction architecture. It is not considered fast but it is strong enough to beat some of the latest and most powerful Chipsets. HiSilicon Kirin 9000 is fabricated on 6Nm. This means HiSilicon Kirin 9000 is power efficient and will consume less battery and will produce less heat. This chipset has 15.3 Billion transistors. There are more transistors than the apple a15 bionic chipset. Which tops the geekbench 5 at this time. Hopefully, with new latest updates on this processor, this may also be at the Apple a15 bionic.


GPU name Mali-G78 MP24
Architecture Valhall 2
Execution units 24
Shading units 384
Vulkan version 1.1
OpenCL version 2.0
DirectX version 12

 HiSilicon Kirin 9000 has new architecture-based GPU. Valhall 2 is the new architecture that they are using in the HiSilicon Kirin 9000. The GPU is also manufactured using the 6Nm technology. Which means it will also be power efficient. The name of the GPU is Mali-G78 MP24. This is the fastest GPU in this lineup. The HiSilicon Kirin 9000 is fast enough to handle games like FREE FIRE, PUBG MOBILE. The GPU score is faster than the HiSilicon Kirin 9000 which means there will be a smooth gaming experience on this chipset. The shading units are 384 which will help in rendering the graphics in gaming. There is also DirectX support of 12 which means this processor will support the latest games without any bugs and delays.


Memory type LPDDR5
Memory frequency 2750 MHz
Bus 4x 16 Bit
Max bandwidth 44 Gbit/s
Max size 16 GB

HiSilicon Kirin 9000 uses the new LPDDR5 ram with the memory frequency of 2750MHz and uses the bus of 4×16. The ram may be changed according to the smartphones. The memory frequency is also going to be changed according to smartphones. The max memory bandwidth is 44Gbit/s which is faster than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888G which was used in Honor P50 Pro. This is one of the fastest ram in this LPDDR5 Ram category. This will boost the performance of this processor in this chipset.
