Kirin 9000SL adopts a 2+3+4 nine-core CPU architecture. The two ultra-large cores are clocked at 2.35GHz, which is lower than the 2.62GHz clocked by Kirin 9000S, so the performance will be slightly affected.
Huawei’s nova 12 series has been released on December 26. This series of mobile phones is currently on full pre-sale on Huawei Mall, and will be officially launched in early January.
Huawei nova 12 series uses three different processor specifications. Huawei nova 12 active version uses the Snapdragon 778G processor, and Huawei nova 12 and Huawei nova 12 Pro use the Kirin 8000 processor. Huawei nova 12 Ultra uses the Kirin 9000SL processor.
Snapdragon 778G is a processor that we are very familiar with, and we don’t need to say more about the situation. As usual, no specifications have been announced for the two new processors, Kirin 8000 and Kirin 9000SL. According to the news, Kirin 9000SL uses a 2+3+4 nine-core CPU architecture, with two super-large cores clocked at 2.35GHz, which is lower than the 2.62GHz clocked by Kirin 9000S, so its performance will be slightly affected.
As for the performance of the Kirin 8000, it adopts a 1+3+4 CPU architecture. Both the large core and the ultra-large core use the A77 core. The small core is expected to be A55. The overall performance is at the same level as the Snapdragon 778G.
All in all, the mere performance gap between Huawei’s nova 12 series may not reflect their price difference. Huawei nova 12 Ultra, which uses Kirin 9000SL, will definitely have certain performance advantages, but the lead is very limited.
Therefore, if you want to choose the nova 12 series based on performance, there is no need to go to great lengths, because the performance gap between the four models is very small. If you focus on performance experience, don’t touch the Kirin processor for the time being. After all, the current Kirin must first solve the problem of energy production before considering catching up in performance.
