The upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 that will power smartphones in 2019 will handle AI and machine learning tasks differently.
A super-early Huawei Mate 20 prototype may have already been benchmarked at AnTuTu, racking up an earth-shattering 356,000+ points with a 7nm-based Kirin 980 SoC inside.
It's a development board meant more for established tech firms and startups working in emerging fields. And with AI, neural processing and a lot more in this board, it's fitting.
The company uses a proprietary CPU core design to help it reach competition-smashing speeds. It's now catching up with a dedicated AI sub-chip.
