Just when consumers were still immersed in the pleasure brought to us by 5nm chips, news came that 5nm chips collectively became a joke? What is going on here?

5 Nano collectives into a joke

As we all know, several of the recently released mobile phones are equipped with the most advanced 5nm process chips in the world, such as Apple’s A14 and Huawei’s Kirin 9000 some time ago, and later Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 and Samsung EXYNOS 1080. It is said that the power consumption of this 5nm chip is low, and the performance improvement is very obvious, which can bring a better experience for users.

However, the real situation now is indeed that the 5nm process chip launched for the smartphone market in 2021 has not been able to achieve the expected goal, and its performance is very disappointing. After Apple and Huawei listed the A14 and Kirin 9000 respectively, Qualcomm Snapdragon and Samsung Orion chips have been listed one after another , and this also means that the duration of the flagship machine has truly entered the era of 5 nanometers.

But this seemingly very advanced chip has become a joke now, and it is not as powerful as imagined. And the first batch of the first batch of the chip giants mentioned above has many problems.

Samsung Qualcomm can't escape

we all know. At present, only TSMC and Samsung can mass produce 5nm chips in the world. Among them, A14, Kirin 9000, and Kirin 9000e are all produced by TSMC, while Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chips and Samsung’s Exynos 1080 are produced by Samsung. of.

To be fair, this kind of 5-nanometer chip, compared with the 7-nanometer process, can bring a better experience in terms of performance, craftsmanship, and power consumption. Of course, all of this must establish a foundation for mature technology. on. But the current situation is that these chips have not reached the standard for full application.

As the first mass-produced 5nm chip, the HiSilicon Kirin 9000 chip equipped with Huawei Mate 40 is very powerful. In the press conference earlier, Yu Chengdong also said that it is much better than the previous chip. However, after the real machine went on sale, users found that when Kirin 9000 was running some large-scale games, it could not guarantee the long-lasting high frame mode, and frequency reduction would soon occur. The reason was that the power consumption was difficult to control, and it was also officially. For this reason, Kirin 9000 has been turned into a fire unicorn by netizens.

The release of Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 later rekindled hope for many users. Legend has it that this Snapdragon 888 is much stronger than Huawei’s Kirin 9000, but what is unexpected is that the performance of this Snapdragon 888 on Xiaomi Mi 11 is not much different from the Kirin 9000 in terms of power consumption control performance.

A related boss has also tested the supply, and the temperature is very high, but the boss said that there should be room for optimization in the later stage. Just after the release of Mi 11, VIVO X60 came with Samsung's Exynos 1080 the next day. As the world's fourth 5nm process chip, the official said that the performance of this chip is very strong.

After testing by well-known digital bloggers, the results show that the performance of this chip is indeed quite good, but in terms of power consumption, it is even better than Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888. We all know that Samsung's process design has always been inferior to TSMC, so it is expected that this will happen.

Kirin 9000e becomes the biggest winner

In this way, it seems that the Kirin 9000e has become the biggest winner. Although Kirin 9000 is compared with Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 and Samsung Exynos 1080, the performance of Huawei Mate 40 equipped with Kirin 9000e is still very good, basically retaining the performance that 5nm should have.

In this large-scale chip rollover scene, it seems that all the 5nm chips that are touted for high performance and low power consumption have become a joke. Even Samsung and Qualcomm have not escaped, but Huawei’s Kirin 9000 has been called by netizens to be Fire Kylin is also among these chips, performing best in all aspects.
