ARM Mali-G52 MP6 vs ARM Mali-G57 MP6 vs ARM Mali-G52 MP2

ARM Mali-G52 MP6

► remove from comparison ARM Mali-G52 MP6

The ARM Mali-G52 MP6 is an integrated mid-range graphics card for ARM based SoCs (mostly Android based). It was introduced mid 2019 in the HiSilicon Kirin 810 and uses 6 clusters (hence the MP6 name). 

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 G52MP6 in our benchmarks (in the Kirin 810) is comparable to the Adreno 618 in the Snapdragon 730 and G76MP4 in the Helio G90T.

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

ARM Mali-G57 MP6

► remove from comparison ARM Mali-G57 MP6

The ARM Mali-G57 MP6 is an integrated mid-range graphics card for ARM based SoCs (mostly Android based). It was introduced mid 2020 in the HiSilicon Kirin 820 and uses 6 clusters (hence the MP6 name). 

The G57 is based on the new Valhall architecture and is intended for mainstream phones. 

The performance of the G57MP6 in our benchmarks (in the Kirin 820 / Huawei P40 Lite) is comparable to the Adreno 620 (e.g. Oppo Find X2) and ARM Mali-G72 MP18 (Note10 Lite).

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

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.
