Qualcomm Adreno 618 vs ARM Mali-G76 MP4

Qualcomm Adreno 618

► remove from comparison

The Qualcomm Adreno 618 is a mobile graphics card for upper mid-range smartphones and tablets (mostly Android based). It is included in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 and 730G SoCs and based on the Adreno 600 architecture (like the Adreno 630, which should be fully compatible in software).

In our benchmarks, the Adreno 618 in the Snapdragon 730 was 14 to 30% faster than the Adreno 616 in the Snapdragon 710. The performance in the 730G should be additional 15% faster, due to higher clock rates.

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-G76 MP4

► remove from comparison ARM Mali-G76 MP4

The ARM Mali-G76 MP4 is an integrated high-end graphics card for ARM based SoCs (mostly Android based). It was introduced in 2019 in the Mediatek G90 and G90T (e.g. Redmi Note 8 Pro). The G76MP4 integrates 4 of the 20 possible cores and is based on the second generation of the Bifrost architecture. According to ARM it offers improvements in the machine learning efficiency and a bigger tile buffer for 16x anti-aliasing. Compared to the old Mali-G72, the G76 should offer twice the performance per cluster. 

The GPU supports all modern graphics APIs like OpenGL ES 3.2, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0, DirectX 12 FL11_1 and Renderscript.
