ARM Mali-G78 MP20 vs ARM Mali-G52 MP6 vs ARM Mali-G57 MP4

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 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 MP4

► remove from comparison ARM Mali-G57 MP4

The ARM Mali-G57 MP4 is an integrated mid-range graphics card for ARM based SoCs (mostly Android based). It was introduced late 2020 in the MediaTek Dimensity 800 and uses 4 clusters (hence the MC4/MP4 name). 

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

The performance of the G57MP4 in our benchmarks is comparable to the Adreno 620.

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