Not called Tianzhu 2000, but Tianzhu 9000: Lianfa’s flagship mobile phone chip, can you turn over this year?

Different from Apple, Qualcomm and Huawei, Liaotai’s mobile phone chip has been considered to have achieved performance of the flagship mobile phone, and the latest product of this company may bring a change.


Today, Beijing time, MEDITEK, just issued the latest flagship processor “Tianzhu 9000”, which is the most powerful chip in history.

Prior to this, the flagship mobile phone chip from the Unicovo is slightly behind the Snapdragon 888 or Samsung EXYNOS 2100, but the launch of Tianzhu 9000 is very likely to reverse the situation. After all, in this year, more and more “Pro version” mobile phones have been replaced with the sky chip.

The advantages of the United Kingdom are first embodied in the process, and the newly released Tianzhu 9000 is the first mobile chip based on TSMC 4nm Process (N4). This can be called the industry first.

We know, the A15 Bionic, currently used in the iPhone 13 series, still stays on TSMC 5nm, but the process is strengthened (N5P), which also uses a 5nm process in the same year than last year, the improvement amplitude is limited.

The N4 of TSMC compared to N5, the density increased by 6%, and the performance has an improvement in the number of digits. TSMEA previously announced that N4’s risk production will begin in the third quarter of 2021, and Tianzhu 9000 plans to launch commercial equipment in the first quarter of 2022, which may be the leading product of new process nodes.

In contrast, Qualcomm will continue to use Samsung Separation in the next generation of flagship chips released on November 30, which is expected to be a Samsung 4nm process.

Tianzhu 9000 also adopted a new V9 architecture of ARM. This is also the first CPU for the first use of ARM’s new kernel. The large and medium-sized core is all new architectures: the octuclear structure contains a Cortex-X2 large core with a three-way 3.05GHz, and the three clocked Cortex-A710 in the CORTEX-A710 And four clocks of the Cortex-A510 small core for 1.8GHz.


The Cortex-X2 core of the United Kingdom is equipped with a complete 1MB level 2 cache with a clock frequency of up to 3.05GHz. This frequency is higher than that we are 2.86 and 2.9GHz, which are 2.86 and 2.9GHz, respectively, in X1 kernel – Snapdragon 888 or Exynos 2100, but the competitors of the United Kingdom use Samsung 5LPE process nodes. We still don’t know the specific configuration of the next generation, but it should be less likely to exceed 3GHz. This means that the day 9000 may have a single-threaded performance.


Lian Zaike said in the release, Tianzhu 9000 performance is 35% higher than the current Android flagship, and the energy efficiency has increased by 37%, which means that the X2 core peak power level of the UNAMICA is from the Snapdragon 888. Similar to the X1 kernel, this is a nice level, and these numbers meet our expectations of IPC and process nodes.

The Nakatsu 9000 is the core of 3 Cortex-A710, equipped with 512KB L2 cache, the main frequency up to 2.45GHz, and the high-pass 2.4GHz design is compared. Four new Cortex-A510 small kernel caokes are 256KB, but also settings close to maximum performance.

The GPU of the new chip uses a new architecture 10 core ARM MALI-G710. In terms of each nuclear performance, a new G710 kernel is roughly equivalent to two G78 kernels, so in terms of size and performance, the new chip’s GPU is roughly with Google Tensor. G78MP20 GPU is comparable to it, and it is possible to source the improvement of IP, and the overall performance has increased by 20%.

In the data, UNAVD declares that Tianzhu 9000 graphic performance is 35% higher than the current Android flagship, while power efficiency has increased by 60%. All flagship engines this year are quite disappointing in terms of game efficiency, whether Qualcomm, Samsung or Even Google, the absolute power figures reach 7.5-9W.

Liaotai pointed out that their efficiency advantage is much greater than performance improvement, which also shows that the peak power level of the chip is lower than the limit level when the game test is less than the limit level. This is definitely a welcome change.

UNAVA once again mentioned the mobile port light tracking capabilities, but the current software API implementation without a special hardware section.

Here’s the run, Tianzhu 9000 Ann Rabbit rabbits more than 1 million (Snapdragon 888Plus is 870), and the Union’s own statement is this:


The PPT is displayed on the PPT, and the Apple A15 is compared, running or the mobile game “original God”, Tianzhu 9000 can exceed the iPhone. The iPhone 13 series chip has a power of approximately 3-3.5W. According to reports, the performance of Apple phones may be restricted due to poor heat dissipation under cellular network conditions. Liaotai pointed out that these comparisons were carried out in a similar thermal budget, so I hope that it is effective here (after all, IOS and Android’s original gods, the resolution is not the same).

Due to the use of new TSMEN N4 nodes and intelligent power management in SOC and platform design, Tianzhu 9000 can achieve low power consumption:

On AI, the Univalanced Artificial Intelligence Processing Unit APU (equivalent to NPU) has evolved to the fifth generation, which has six total kernels for AI processing, the company’s performance and energy efficiency is four times the previous generation. Tianzhu 9000 is still the first compatible with LPDDR5X SOC.

On image processing, the new 18-bit IMAGIQ GEN 7 ISP is considered to be the world’s first chip that can process 320 million pixels in real time (the mobile phone needs to have this level of photosensitive components), which can transmit 900 million pixels per second. data.

The 5G communication capability of the Tianzhu chip also has a large increase, and Tianzhu 9000 provides an integrated 5G modem supporting 3GPP 160 (5G R16) to achieve up to 7Gbps download speed. It is worth noting that the new chip only provides built-in SUB-6GHz 5g support without compatible millimeter wave standards.


Liaotai pointed out that the modem of the Tianzhu 9000 has a very high energy efficiency compared to the product of the competitors.


Tianzhu 9000 is also known as the first smartphone chip that supports Bluetooth 5.3, and Wi-Fi standard has also increased to Wi-Fi 6E.

Due to the absence of the new generation of Huawei Qilin, the main players in the Android phone chip field only high pass, Lianfa and Samsung. Even if the “Snapdragon 8Gen1” released at the end of the dragon annual technology summit this month is the same as the 9000 performance of Tianzhu 9000, it is also seen as a huge victory.

So far, although the United Kingdom in 5G chip has reached a grade of the global market share, and continuously maintained four quarters, the Tianzhu chip is still considered to be lagging behind Xiaolong 888. But after the launch of Tianzhu 9000, we may see a shocking transformation in the first quarter of next year.
