ARM Mali-G78 MP20 vs ARM Mali-G57 MP5

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-G57 MP5

► remove from comparison ARM Mali-G57 MP5

The ARM Mali-G57 MP5 is an integrated mid-range graphics card for ARM based SoCs (mostly Android based). It was introduced mid 2020 in the MediaTek Dimensity 820 and uses 5 clusters (hence the MC5/MP5 name). 

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

The performance of the G57MP5 in our benchmarks (in the MediaTek Dimensity 820 / Remi 10x) is comparable to the Adreno 540 and also the ARM Mali-G57 MP6 (most likely due to higher clock rates).

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