Thanks for this comparison, but I still don't understand because in some gaming reviews on YouTube the Helio G70 can run the NBA2K20 on ultra graphics smoothly at almost 60fps while the Helio G80 can only run NBA2K20 at medium to high graphics to play it smoothly even though the Helio G80 has higher GPU Frequency, is it true that this processor isn't optimized yet? I hope someone will reply to my comment and explain to me the reason of my question. I just feel sad because I'm an NBA fan and I really want to play the game with ultra graphics but my phone who had the Helio G80 processor can't run it smoothly. Anyway, As always, Good job👍🏽

Hi, it can be problem with different android version or different NBA version. G80 and G70 should show similar performance in games.
