ARM Mali-G52 MP6 vs ARM Mali-G71 MP8

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-G71 MP8

► remove from comparison ARM Mali-G71 MP8

The ARM Mali-G71 MP8 is an integrated high-end graphics adapter for ARM SoCs, which was used in combination with the smartphone and tablet chip HiSilicon Kirin 960 in November 2016 for the first time. Based on initial benchmarks, the GPU performance is slightly better compared to the Adreno 530 in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821. It is therefore one of the most powerful graphics units for (Android) devices in the end of 2016.
