Benchmark tests reveal Huawei Nova 5 is quite faster than most Snapdragon 730 smartphones

The launch schedule of Huawei clearly seems unperturbed from Android ban and other similar events related to the US-China trade war. Recently, they had launched Honor 20 series, and now they’ve launched a new Nova 5 family of smartphones. This new lineup is interesting because it comes with a new chipset, which is Kirin 810. This chipset is the latest invention of the company’s processor-making arm, and therefore everyone was a bit more enthusiastic in testing the muscle of Nova 5 smartphones.

Due to that high interest, it didn’t take too long for Nova 5 to appear on AnTuTu benchmarks. And what we’re learning from the benchmark results is truly amazing.

The comparisons reveal that not only this chipset is ahead of its predecessor Kirin 710 by a huge margin, but also a clear winner over American chipmaker Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 730. Nova 5 scored 237,000 points in the benchmark tests, which is 13% more than the average results of Snapdragon 730 and 70% more than the average of Kirin 710. The GPU of Kirin 810 seems highly powerful, as it has got 25% higher scores than the GPU of Snapdragon 730. And when compared against the GPU of Kirin 710, there’s no match as performance is 3x better.
