Rumors attributed to SoC Kirin 970 graphics processor ARM based on the new architecture Heimdallr
Huawei for many years and produces its own system on a chip. Now the producer has as a flagship SoC, and solutions with relatively inexpensive apparatus.
Now the top is Kirin SoC 960, which finally got productive GPU and no questions to his ability causes. It was introduced in October last year, so to upgrade it yet. But the Network has already appeared the first rumors about SoC Kirin 970.
It is expected that the new platform will be manufactured on TSMC facilities using the norms of 10 nm. Also, the source said processor cores Cortex-A73, not to mention more energy-efficient cores. As for the GPU, supposedly it will be a brand new graphics processor ARM based on yet to be announced architecture Heimdallr.
And this is probably the most interesting part of the hearing, since on this architecture we have never heard of. Before the release of Kirin 970 in any case still far away, so the ARM may well be time to release a new GPU. Recall that Kirin uses 960 GPU Mali-G71 MP8.
