Geekbench test for Huawei’s Mate PadPro 11 included a mystery Kirin chipset
The chip running the tablet on Geekbench features an octa-core configuration with one Performance CPU core clocked at 2.49GHz, three more Performance CPU cores running at 2.15GHz, and four Efficiency CPU cores clocked at 1.53GHz. That is the exact configuration used for the Kirin 9000s 5G.The Geekbench scores for single-core and multi-core were 1244 and 3793 respectively which matches the score for the Kirin 9000s 5G used on the Mate 60 series, and also the Snapdragon 865 SoC from 2019. Yes, despite the accolades, the Kirin 9000s chip is theoretically four years behind other flagship chips.
Since 5G isn’t needed for the new tablet (remember, it doesn’t feature cellular connectivity), the Kirin chip that accompanied the MatePad Pro 11″ on Geekbench might have been the Kirin 9000s without the 5G support. We should point out that the Geekbench test showed that the MatePad Pro 11″ tablet will sport 12GB of RAM which dovetails perfectly with the specs we told you that the tablet would sport last night.
