Mediatek MT8165 vs Mediatek MT6735P vs Mediatek Helio P20 (LP4) MT6757
Mediatek MT8165► remove
The MediaTek MT8165 is a 64-bit ARM-based SoC for Android devices launched in 2014. The quad-core processor is manufactured in 28 nm and based on the Cortex-A53 architecture. In addition to the CPU core, it integrates an ARM Mali-760 MP2 GPU and a LPDDR3 memory controller (32-bit, 800 MHz, 6.4 GB/s).
The Cortex-A53 is the successor to the popular Cortex-A7 design. In addition to the jump from 32-bit to 64-bit architecture (ARMv8 ISA) to address more than 4 GB of memory, the new design offers better branch prediction and higher performance-to-power ratio that rivals the Cortex-A9. The four cores of the MT8165 are clocked at up to 1.5 GHz and sits roughly in between the Qualcomm Snapdragon 610 (4x Cortex-A53 at 1.7 GHz) and Snapdragon 410 (4x Cortex-A53 at 1.2 to 1.4 GHz). The power-efficient processor is fit for common tasks like browsing and running light applications.
The integrated dual-core Mali-T760 MP2 is a mid-range GPU clocked at up to 500 MHz. Most Android games will run at acceptable frame rates on medium resolutions and quality.
Mediatek MT6735P► remove
The 1.5 GHz MediaTek MT6735P is a 64-bit ARM-based SoC launched in 2014 primarily for small budget to mainstream Android devices. The quad-core processor is manufactured in 28 nm and is based on the Cortex-A53 architecture. It integrates a cat.4 LTE modem with CDMA2000 and an ARM Mali-720 GPU capable of decoding and encoding videos of up to 1080p30. Compared to the MT6732, the MT6735 utilizes a slower graphics unit. Compared to the similar MediaTek MT6735, the "P"-version is significantly lower clocked (only 1 versus 1.5 GHz).
The Cortex-A53 is the successor to the popular Cortex-A7 design. In addition to the jump from 32-bit to 64-bit architecture (ARMv8 ISA) to address more than 4 GB of memory, the new design offers better branch prediction and higher performance-to-power ratio that rivals the Cortex-A9. The four cores of the MT6732 are clocked at up to 1 GHz and therefore the MT6735P is significantly slower than other A53 SoCs that are usually clocked at 1.4 GHz and up.
The power-efficient processor is still suited for low demanding tasks like browsing and running light applications.
The integrated single-core Mali-T720 is an entry-level GPU clocked at up to 600 MHz (450 MHz likely). Most Android games will play at acceptable frame rates on medium resolutions and quality.
The MT6732P SoC integrates a memory controller (32-bit LPDDR3, 6.4 GB/s), multiple radios (WLAN, Bluetooth, GPS), and a cellular modem (GSM, UMTS, GPRS, HSPA+, HSUPA, TD-SCDMA, EVDO, and LTE Cat 4). Its integrated video engine allows for 1080p playback at 30 FPS. Cameras are supported up to 13 MP.
Mediatek Helio P20 (LP4) MT6757► remove
The Mediatek Helio P20 MT6757 is an upper mainstream ARM SoC for smartphones (mainly Android based) that was introduced in 2016. It is manufactured in a 16 nm FinFET process and is equipped with 8 ARM Cortex-A53 CPU cores clocked at 2.3 GHz (max.). The chip also includes an LTE modem (Cat. 6).
The integrated ARM Mali T880 MP2 GPU is clocked at up to 900 MHz and has two cluster (from 16) from the Midgard (4th Gen) architecture.
