From the chart list above, now we can understand easily what a smartphone GPU model that have most powerful performance today, then like you know Graphic Card Unit or commonly called GPU have very important function for some modern smartphone that exist today, by using good GPU hardware you can running any heavy jobs on your smartphone, especially in term for 3D model rendering process.
Lets take simply, GPU is a crucial hardware if you want playing some game without getting any lags issues, specially for game that have heavy 3D architecture model.
GPU is not like CPU that have crucial jobs for processing anything globally, GPU only have one special job that is only for graphic rendering only, that included for 2D image rendering and also for 3D image rendering that typically in some modern mobile games.
Now, If you are using latest top tier GPU hardware it will can processing any heavy graphic task smoothly, but this is very contrast if your phone still using the old model GPU hardware, we can ensured it will fail to process some heavy graphic rendering jobs and the final result it will bring bad experience for user because the rendering process will be end with lags, stutter and sometime freeze.
Then, are the GPU hardware is needed for gaming purpose only? No, GPU hardware is important hardware that needed not just for gaming purpose only but it will needed for any other multi purpose such as for mobile graphic designer, mobile content creator, mobile photo and video editor and much more.
After understanding main function of the GPU hardware for the smartphone, for getting the best experience when use the modern smartphone that can handle multiple jobs specially for 2D / 3D image rendering, you should choose the right smartphone that must fit for your needed and finally this article can helping you because we have data for help the user for making self decision from the smartphone GPU hardware perspective.
The what we do are collecting benchmark smartphone GPU data from several trusted benchmark provider and creating table rank from the from each benchmark score, so the user can easily understand how the good that GPU hardware in ranking chart.
The first thing, we doesn't generate score data itself, we just collecting them from several benchmark tool provider, the all benchmark tool that we used for making the rank list they all are must be trusted, have a good reputation it can be see by user feedback and the last the all data from the benchmark tool must can be reflected to the real world use.
So, from the all thing above we choose data from the several benchmark tool, they are :
But, you should to know, we are not affiliate to them, we just use their data for helping the user for understanding how the good the GPU that they use on they smartphone.
Very simple, largest benchmark score will have smaller rank in the chart data, in the mean smaller rank will more have good performance than the higher rank number.
But, we are limited the rank data max for the top 100th rank only, because the top 100th typically be have good performance that can be use for the modern user needed.
For deeper understanding how the rank chart data work are if the GPU hardware ranked on top 10th that should be very good mobile GPU hardware because the top 10th typically indicated for the flagship smartphone GPU model.
Then, for the 11th - 30th rank are also good GPU, but it typically for the medium up to high class smartphone GPU level, for the term of modern use the performance from the GPU that ranked from 11th - 30th is good and should can be use for the high rendering activity.
Next, for the 31th - 60th rank that typically for the medium tier smartphone GPU model, the GPU hardware that ranked around 31th until 60th should have good enough performance for handled most rendering activity, but the final result can be compared to the flagship smartphone GPU, because the medium tier mobile GPU model may have limited hardware performance.
The last 61th - 100th rank typically indicated for the entry-level up to medium tier GPU model or the old type smartphone GPU model, the term of performance may similar to the medium GPU tier, but because they old or the entry-level, the hardware performance may be limited for handled heavy image rendering activity.
Generally we are updated the rankings data at every first week of every month periodically, But in some case we can update the rank data couple time in a month, that we are do because we need the latest data from the latest release GPU model as soon as possible if they already available on the source of database.
Thus, today you should be tp know what the mobile smartphone GPU model that have best performance reflecting from the ranking chart data, then ff you have plan to brought new phones in future, so rankings data above can helping you to choosing the best and right phones that suitable for the needs.
But still, if you need get the best user experience from your selected phones, then don't see on the GPU hardware perspective only, but you must see to the other hardware such as CPU and RAM, because they are also have very crucial function for the smartphone and they are it seems related to each other in term for bringing the best user experience result.
