The Cortex-A78 CPU comes with a 20% performance gain over the Cortex-A77 used in Exynos 980 along with greater on-device Machine Learning (ML) performance and the  Mali-G78 GPU offers 25% improvement and a 15% performance density improvement for gaming content compared to Mali-G77 GPU. AnTuTu listing that surfaced recently revealed 693,600 points better than the latest Snapdragon 865+ SoC.
