ARM Mali-T880 MP12

The ARM Mali-T880 MP12 is a mobile graphics solution that can be found in ARM SoCs like the Samsung Exynos 8890. The chip is available since Q1/2016 (e.g. in some of the Galaxy S7 variants) and supports OpenGL ES 3.1, OpenCL 1.2 and DirectX 11.2 (FL 11_2). The Mali-T880 can be built with 1 to 16 clusters, where the MP12 version features 12 clusters/cores.

The MP12 version that is used in the Samsung Exynos 8890 is clocked with up to 650 MHz and is a bit slower than the Adreno 530 in the Snapdragon 820 SoC. However, it still belongs to the high-end graphics cards for ARM based SoCs.
