Xiaomi company in China has just invented Surge S1, a 64-bit octa-core performance ARM system-on-chip.  

The chip was introduced in early 2017. This chip incorporates 8 Cortex-A53 cores in a big.LITTLE configuration with four cores operating at up to 2.2 GHz with the other four set of cores operating at 1.4 GHz.

But, the chip is still 25 years behind Western chips, since it is based on the obsolete and ancient 28 nm fabrication process.  And since China can't manufacture quality semiconductors, Xiaomi is using Taiwan's TSMC to manufacture the chips.

The West is going to start selling 10nm products in one month.  And next year, 6nm will be used.

China has just barely started making 28nm.  It's like China is still in the Stone Age, while the rest of the world has already reached the moons of Jupiter.  So sad.
