Huawei Kirin 990 5G version, as one of Android’s flagship SOCs, said to be powerful in performance. The Kirin 990 5G version uses the second-generation 7nm + EUV process, which has a better process. The power consumption and frequency have been improved compared to the Kirin 990, and an additional NPU has been added. Reflected in the running performance, the single-core performance and multi-core performance of the Kirin 990 5G version is very good; with up to 16-core GPU blessing, the computing power score is not weak.
The Kirin 990 5G performance recently checked in popular games. The game content covers MOBA, FPS, TPS, racing, action and other types, all using the preset maximum picture quality + 60 frames . We use the newly released Honor V30 PRO as a test machine, which is regarded as the most cost-effective product equipped with Kirin 990 5G chip. Use Honor V30 PRO to play these games to see how the frame number performance.

The software that records frame rate changes is Perfdog performance dogs. This software was developed by Tencent and is specially designed for mobile platform performance analysis. The system resource occupation is very small, and it can accurately monitor changes in the number of frames and CPU usage.
After the test results are uploaded to the cloud, it is convenient for us to count and compare the test results.
From the test results, we can see that the Kirin 990 5G chip is quite impressive. In the performance statistics, the highest average frame rate is 59 and the lowest is 55.5. Most games run at full frame without pressure. The actual gaming performance of Kirin 990 5G is as good as its running score, which can fully meet our game needs and achieve a smooth experience with full frames.
