General info

1.Supports 64-bit
HiSilicon Kirin 960
A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit apps.
2.semiconductor size

16nm

Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
3.GPU clock speed

900MHz

The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
4.DirectX version

11.2

DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
5.OpenGL ES version

3.1

OpenGL ES is used for games on mobile devices such as smartphones. Newer versions support better graphics.
6.OpenCL version

1.2

Some apps use OpenCL to apply the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) for non-graphical computing. Newer versions introduce more functionality and better performance.

Performance

1.CPU speed

4 x 2.36GHz & 4 x 1.84GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.Uses big.LITTLE technology
HiSilicon Kirin 960
Using big.LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores to maximize performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking email will use the less powerful cores to maximize battery life.

Memory

1.maximum memory bandwidth

25.6GB/s

This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.
2.memory channels

2

More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.

Features

1.Has integrated LTE
HiSilicon Kirin 960
The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.
2.Has dynamic frequency scaling
HiSilicon Kirin 960
Dynamic frequency scaling is a technology that allows the processor to conserve power and reduce noise when it is under a light load.
3.download speed

600MBits/s

The download speed is a measurement of the internet connection bandwidth, representing the maximum data transfer rate at which a device can access online content.
4.Has NX bit
HiSilicon Kirin 960 (ARM Cortex-A53)
NX bit helps protect the computer from malicious attacks.
5.bits executed at a time
NEON provides acceleration for media processing, such as listening to MP3s.
6.Supports hardware-assisted virtualization
HiSilicon Kirin 960 (ARM Cortex-A53)
It is easier to obtain better performance when using virtualization if it is hardware-assisted.
