Apple’s iPhone 12 series and Huawei’s mate 40 series all use 5nm technology. A14 and Kirin 9000 are one of TSMC’s two earliest products with 5nm technology. Next, Samsung and MediaTek’s 5nm flagship chips are also fast. Although semiconductor technology is becoming more and more advanced, in chip design, manufacturers are becoming more and more conservative, at least for Android flagship chips. The micro blog digital KOL @ digital chat station mentioned one thing, that is, Qualcomm, Huawei, Samsung and MediaTek will use 1 + 3 + 4 architecture on their flagship chips, instead of using 4 + 4 cores. < / P > < p > the so-called 4 + 4 and 1 + 3 + 4 refer to the CPU design of mobile phone processor. There is no objection to the matching of 8 cores, but how to make 8 cores is still a problem. A few years ago, it was the design of 4 cores + 4 small cores, but now it has become a combination of one big core, three medium cores and four small cores. Of course, the manufacturer’s good publicity will say that one super core, three large cores and four small cores will be added Small nuclei. < / P > < p > the new flagship of MediaTek Tianji, which may be called Tianji 20000 series, will also change from 4 + 4 of Tianji 1000 series to 1 + 3 + 4 core architecture. Don’t forget that the three slave architecture was originally used by MediaTek, and the Helio X20 at that time was eaten by crabs, but it was a pity that it failed. < / P > < p > as for why manufacturers have to switch to the 1 + 3 + 4 architecture and try their best to get a high-frequency big core, it is very simple to say that it is necessary to run a single core, and to use a so-called super large core to improve geekbench and other running points. However, as mentioned above, from 4 + 4 to 1 + 3 + 4 architecture, in fact, manufacturers are becoming more and more conservative in new technologies, and the cost of making four large cores is getting higher and higher. Now apple is the only one who insists on making multiple large cores. A14 is 2 cores + 4 small cores. However, Apple’s 4 small cores are not weak at all, which still makes the Android camp suffer.
