Xiaomi showcases its first ever in-house chipset

Xiaomi logoJust as teased and teased, right on the date, Xiaomi unveiled the Surge S1 - its first in-house chipset.

This is the lower-tier of the two Pinecone CPUs Xiaomi has planned and is built on a 28nm process. In comparison, the higher-end Pinecone V970 we're waiting on will be built around the efficient 10nm process.

The Surge S1 has eight Cortex-A53 processing cores, four clocked at 2.2GHz and the other four - at a more battery-conscious 1.4GHz.

The graphics chip inside the Surge S1 is a quad-core Mali-T860 which makes an appearance in a lot of midrangers out there although in its dual-core variation.

The Surge S1 will compete mostly with the likes of the Huawei Kirin 650 (16nm, 8x A53, Mali-T830), Snapdragon 430 (28nm, 8x A53, Adreno 505), Exynos 7580 (28nm, 4x A53, Mali-T830) and the MediaTek MT6738T (28nm, 8x A53, Mali-T860). You can find all of the specs neatly laid out in our detailed article. And if you really want to go deep into synthetics and silicone you can have a go at our very detailed Mobile Chipset Guide.

The Xiaomi Surge S1 is featured in the brand-new Xiaomi Mi 5c, announced just now and is expected to be featured in other, upcoming Xiaomi smartphones.

We're now more eager to see the higher-end Pinecone chipset Xiaomi has in store.
