MTK6577 with PowerVR SGX531 Ultra Screen Resolution 3D Games Test

The GPU on the MTK6577 SoC is now standard on many Chinese phones, clones or originals alike. Here we take a look at how the SGX531 GPU performs at different screen resolutions running 3D games. It has been published that the MTK6577 SoC can drive a maximum of QHD resolution ( 540x960 ) but many manufacturers have paired the MTK6577 / SGX531 Ultra GPU with 720x1280 HD screens. Games tested are N.O.V.A. 3 and NFS (Need For Speed ) Most Wanted. Because these CPU/GPU are now the highest specced chips in the Chinese budget phone market, one needs to know which combination is best for their needs. For me, I seldom play games but I appreciate high resolution screens and productivity / utility software so hires large screens are what I need. This section will help you decide what kind of phone you need without breaking the bank and tearing a hole in your pocket. Watch the video to find out more...

My recommendations for  MTK6577 phones UNDER USD $200:

If you need fastest game performance and screen resolution is secondary, get the
HDC Galaxy S3 Plus ( click link to fastcardtech ), now discounted at $180 with Free Shipping to selected countries.

If you are an occasional game player and need balanced performance with QHD higher resolution, you have several options:
HDC Galaxy Note 2 at $192 with Free Shipping!
Neo NO2-M at $174 with Free Shipping! 1GB RAM!
Star Xperia TX at $170 with Free Shipping!
Newsmy Newman N1 at $185 shipping charges applies.

If you absolutely need highest resolution 720 HD screen and play less games:
HDC Galaxy S3 EX at $195 shipping charges apply. 1GB RAM!
UMI X1 at $199.99 shipping charges apply. 1GB RAM!
