The ARM Mali-T830 MP2 is an integrated graphics card for smartphones and tablets. It first appeared in the HiSilicon Kirin 650 in the beginning of 2016. The chip features two clusters and supports OpenGL ES 3.2, OpenCL 1.2 and DirectX 11 (FL 9_3).
The performance should be similar to the old ARM Mali-450 MP4 and therefore non demanding Android games should run fluently.
The ARM Mali-T830 MP2 in the Kirin 650 is manufactured at TSMC at 16nm FF+ and therefore also suited for smaller smartphones.
The Qualcomm Adreno 505 is a mobile graphics card for mid-range smartphones and tablets (mostly Android based). It is included in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 / 435 SoCs and based on the Adreno 500 architecture (like the Adreno 520 in the S820, which should be fully compatible in software).
The GPU supports modern standards like Vulkan 1.0 (according to Wikipedia), OpenGL ES 3.1 + AE (3.2 in other sources), OpenCL 2.0 and DirectX 12 (FL 12.1 according to Wikipedia, 11.1 according to Qualcomm). Furthermore, the GPU supports Universal Bandwidth Compression (UBWC) to save memory bandwidth. Compared to the faster Adreno 506, the 505 is manufactured in the older 28nm process and offers less raw performance.
