MediaTek Helio G90 vs HiSilicon Kirin 810: Detailed Comparison, Benchmark, and More…

MediaTek has just announced gaming-centric mid-range chipset to compete against its rivals Qualcomm and HiSilicon. MediaTek Helio G90 chipset is aimed to power the mid-range smartphones from various Chinese manufacturers. While Kirin 810 was announced last month. So you might be wondering how it competes with the latest Kirin’s mid-range processor. So here’s an article on MediaTek Helio G90 vs HiSilicon Kirin 810.

HiSilicon Kirin 810 utilizes the same architecture as the Helio G90 but the cores are clocked at a higher frequency which should benefit Kirin 810 to achieve higher performance.

Antutu Benchmark:

  • Helio G90: 222285 (test device) 
  • Kirin 810: 237337 (Huawei Nova 5 Pro) 

Geekbench Benchmark:

  • Helio G90: 2410 – 7193 (test device)
  • Kirin 810: 2832 – 7859 (Huawei Nova 5 Pro) 


The newly launched MediaTek Helio G90 is indeed very powerful on paper and also outperforms the Snapdragon 730 but it’s not better than Kirin 810 as we can see the benchmark result.

On Antutu, Kirin 810 creates a 13k gap by scoring 237337. While on the Geekbench, Kirin 810 wins in Single-core and Multi-core with contemptible margin.
