In May of this year, ARM launched the Mali G78 GPU, which has a performance increase of 25% compared with the previous generation G77. According to the manufacturer, 15% of the 25% performance improvement of the Mali G78 GPU comes from the 5nm process. And the rest comes from internal optimization. The addition of the 5nm process also reduces the size of the chip. The company also say that the Mali G78 GPU 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. There is also an 18-core variant. However, this is a big move in comparison to the previous generation G77 with 16 cores. In terms of game performance, the 24-core asynchronous performance exceeds 28% of the 18-core performance.
