Qualcomm Adreno 612 vs ARM Mali-G52 MP2

Qualcomm Adreno 612

► remove from comparison

The Qualcomm Adreno 612 is a mobile graphics card for mid-range smartphones and tablets (mostly Android based). It is included in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 SoCs and based on the Adreno 600 architecture (like the Adreno 630, which should be fully compatible in software).

The performance is similar to the old Adreno 512 graphics card and therefore only in the lower mid-range of modern smartphone SoCs.

The GPU supports modern standards like Vulkan 1.0 (according to Wikipedia), OpenGL ES 3.2, OpenCL 2.0 and DirectX 11 (FL 11_1).

ARM Mali-G52 MP2

► remove from comparison ARM Mali-G52 MP2

The ARM Mali-G52 MP2 (or G52MC2) is an integrated mid-range graphics card for ARM based SoCs (mostly Android based). It was introduced mid 2020 in the MediaTek Helio G80 with a clock speed of up to 950 MHz.

The G52 is based on the Bifrost architecture and is intended for mainstream phones. ARM claims that the G52 series offers 30% more performance density and 15% better energy efficiency compared to the ARM Mali G51 series.

The performance of the G52MP2 in our benchmarks (in the Helio G80) is comparable to the Adreno 612 and ARM Mali-G72 MP3 (thanks to the high clock speed of the G52MP2).

The GPU supports all modern graphics APIs like OpenGL ES 3.2, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0 and Renderscript.
