MisterybirdofQin, 29 Sep 2017Huawei's phone is really a good phone indeed but why they always... moreTrue but not.
In this case its the mali g72. And we saw how powerful g71 was like exynos 20 core g71.
The g72 is a good bit more powerful. So it will be almost as powerful as the Note8 in GPU. I know more cores would do even better. But clock rate, price, and efficiency have to be calculated too.

Huawei's phone is really a good phone indeed but why they always use less GPU cores. More cores will definitely help. example to make intensive games more snappier

Since last 2 years Huawei Company is not sleeping. The company is working so hard to keep their name imprinted on the heart of every smart phone user. They want to be seen as the Hardest in the smart phone business. Indeed they are seriously gaining grounds for that.

Vegetaholic, 05 Sep 2017What the hell are you talking???? Get your facts straight dude, ... moreWell all u r doing is bashing it without checking the facts. If u think this can't match the current gen Exynos and Snapdragon then u r in for a surprise. I sure hope to meet u in the Mate 10 benchmarks article in a few weeks time.

Get your facts straight dude, it is coming in one month time with mate 10 and if it can't co.oete with latest chipsets like exynos 8895 and SD 835 of course it is outdated at best, we talking about top chipset from Huawei and it is definitely can't compete, keep your stinky fanboy stuff to yourself

And how is it already outdated when it will still be not until a couple months minimum into next year even that next exynos is out

There it's 40% faster.
And u r blind if u say it's outdated. Cos it's not always about pure power. The tech used in this GPU is next gen for now. And the power it outputs is more than enough for any consumer. Even heavy gamers(although y anyone wld do heavy gaming on phones is beyond me) and VR enthusiasts. Huawei flagships r very well optimised thanks to their in-house chips and can usually sustain their performance better than most other phones in the market.
So the point u r trying to make is rather irrelevant.

AnonD-596087, 04 Sep 2017Have u seen the benchmarks for this GPU? If not u r just being a... moreTell me from there did you get idea that is 50% faster?????? It says 25% more efficient and 20% performance density increase. So definitely g72mp12 is not faster when g71mp20, so it makes this chipset already outdated, cause new exynos coming in half a year to.e aprox and definitely will have g72mp24 or more cores or even faster gpu, so you still call me a blind hater?

If G72 really delivers 50% increase per core over G71 then this GPU shld beat the G71 MP20. But I believe the S9 will still hold a similar advantage to the S8 this year over Kirin.
Even so this GPU is very capable and shld handle anything thrown at it for the nxt 3 years, which ofcse is the kind of life span a smartphone can expect these days.

But this time around the G72 MP12 certainly seem like a big leap forward atleast on paper. We have to wait and see how good the Adreno 550/630 end up being.

Abraham, 03 Sep 2017Exynos always use underclocked GPUs . Exynos uses 20 cores but o... moreDon't talk garbage, more core less frequency, more better power efficient, more powerful gpu with less heating. If you put only few core at high frequency it will consume more power and will heat much more. Samsung done best move for using 20 cores with 576mhz it is most powerful gpu besides a10, it runs laps around this measly g72mp12, Kirin chipsets was all the time rubbish with their underpowered gpus

Exynos is making laps around this outdated peace of garbage, Huawei, when you going to put a proper GPU??? AI nonsense gimmicks, no one cares about it

AnonD-596087, 03 Sep 2017Get ur facts straight man. Even Qualcomm's official site says 25... morethe 540 only has an increase of 20% towards the Adreno 530 but it's still double as fast than the GPU inside the Kirin 960. Snapdragon destroys Kirin processor that's why instead going for the huawei mate 9 i opted for the OnePlus 5
