Qualcomm Adreno 660 vs ARM Mali-G78 MP24

Qualcomm Adreno 660

► remove from comparison Qualcomm Adreno 660

The Qualcomm Adreno 660 is a smartphone and tablet GPU that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC. The chip will be available from early 2020 and will be used mainly in high-end Android devices.

According to Qualcomm, the Adreno 660 GPU offers a 35% improved performance over the Adreno 650, its predecessor, which is integrated into the Snapdragon 865 SoC. Qualcomm also states that the energy efficiency improved by 20% which might be due to the new 5nm process at Samsung where the chip is produced.

The Adreno 650 supports Vulkan 1.1, DirectX 12, OpenGL ES 3.2, and OpenCL 2.0 FP. Furthermore, games and videos can use HDR10+ and Dolby Vision (with a supported display).

ARM Mali-G78 MP24

► remove from comparison ARM Mali-G78 MP24

The ARM Mali-G78MP24 is an integrated high-end graphics card for ARM based SoCs (mostly Android based). It was introduced late 2020 in the HiSilicon Kirin 9000 (e.g. Huawei Mate 40). It integrates all of the 24 possible cores and is based on the second generation of the Valhal architecture. According to ARM it offers two new features: asynchronous top level and fragment dependency tracking.

The graphics card is one of the fastest in Android devices of 2020 and therefore able to run all games fluently.

The GPU supports all modern graphics APIs like OpenGL ES 3.2, Vulkan 1.1 and OpenCL 2.0.
