ARM Mali-G78 MP20 vs ARM Mali-G77 MP9

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-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.
