Back in May of this year, ARM launched the Mali G78 GPU, which has a performance increase of 25% relative to the previous generation, G77. According to officials, 15% of the 25% performance improvement of the Mali G78 GPU comes from the 5nm process, the rest comes from internal optimization. Furthermore, the use of the 5nm process will reduce the size of the chip. Officials say that Mali G78 GPU also brings a 10% energy efficiency improvement and a 15% machine learning performance improvement.
The Mali G78 GPU uses a Valhall architecture and supports up to 24 cores, and 18 cores are also optional. This is a good improvement considering that the previous generation, G77, comes with 16 cores. In terms of gaming performance, the 24-core asynchronous performance exceeds 28% of the 18-core performance.
