Huawei announces the HiSilicon Kirin 960: 4xA73 + 4xA53, G71MP8, CDMA

Last year we had the opportunity to attend HiSilicon's launch event of the Kirin 950.

It also marked a significant jump both in performance as well as efficiency compared to previous Kirin chipsets. The CPU part especially made such a good impression in our review of the Mate 8, and at the time we estimated that it would easily trade blows with Qualcomm and Samsung's own custom ARM microarchitecture designs, Kryo and Exynos M1, in their respective SoCs and flagship smartphones.
