Arnesh panda, No, 678 is not far reliable and compatible than g95 Reasons being Better cpu ( g95 has a better cpu as per geekbench, antutu and cpu versus) Better GPU(g95 have better GPU) More cpu accessibility (HMP in g95 makes it better with overall 2ghz) Faster ram(g95 has faster ram) Pricing is almost the same This shows g95 being better and also more reliable and compatible over 678

Both processors are very close to each others except GPU performance in G95 if you are not a gamer then 678 is better option.
