ARM Mali-G78 MP20 vs ARM Mali-G52 MP2

ARM Mali-G78 MP20

► remove from comparison ARM Mali-G78 MP20

The ARM Mali-G78MP20 is an integrated high-end graphics card for ARM based SoCs (mostly Android based). It was introduced late 2021 in the Google Tensor SoC. It integrates 20 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.

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.
