ARM Mali-G77 MP9 vs Qualcomm Adreno 740

ARM Mali-G77 MP9

► remove from comparison ARM Mali-G77 MP9

The ARM Mali-G77MP9 is an integrated high-end graphics card for ARM based SoCs (mostly Android based). It was introduced early 2020 in the Mediatek Dimensity 1000 (and 1000+). It integrates 9 of the 16 possible cores and is based on the Valhal architecture. According to ARM it offers improvements in the machine learning efficiency (+60%), a 30% improved performance and a 30% improved efficiency compared to the previous generation (G76).

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.

Qualcomm Adreno 740

► remove from comparison Qualcomm Adreno 740

The Qualcomm Adreno 740 is a smartphone and tablet GPU that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. The chip will be available starting early 2023 and will be used mainly in high-end Android devices. 

According to Qualcomm, the Adreno GPU offers a 25% improved performance compared to the Adreno 730 predecessor in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. First benchmarks show that the Adreno GPU can even beat the Apple A16 GPU (iPhone 14 Pro series) in synthetic benchmarks. Therefore, the Adreno 740 is the fastest graphics chip for smartphones in 2022.

The iGPU supports hardware accelerated ray tracing and a game post processing accelerator (for bloom, depth of field and motion blur). Another first, is the support for Vulkan 1.3.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is produced in the modern 4nm process at TSMC.
