Huawei recently launched their latest flagship smartphones, the Mate 60 series, featuring the Kirin 9000S chipset. This release has generated significant excitement among Huawei fans as this marks a significant comeback for Huawei’s Kirin chips, which had been absent for a few years due to the US ban. While the official specifications of the chipset remain unknown, ongoing testing efforts are gradually revealing more information about its capabilities.
According to a very renowned tech expert geekrawan on Chinese platform Bilibili the Kirin 9000S processor has hyper-threading technology. He confirmed that the chipset has 8 cores and 12 threads. This makes the Kirin 9000S industry’s first mobile phone SoC to have hyper-threading.
What is Hyper-threading ?
According to Intel “Hyper-Threading Technology is a hardware innovation that allows more than one thread to run on each core. More threads means more work can be done in parallel “. Hypert-hreading increases total throughput on a system by between 25% and 40%.
This technology was already available on pc but this is the first time we are seeing it on mobile. It’s a great way to boost efficiency and improve performance. While the benchmark performance of the Kirin 9000S lags behind current top mobile processors like the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and A16 Bionic, the actual performance should be similar due to its hyper-threading capabilities.
