The ARM Mali-T720 is a mobile graphics solution that can be found in ARM SoCs. The chip is available since 2014. Besides OpenGL ES 3.1, the GPU supports OpenCL 1.1 as well as DirectX 11 FL9_3. According to ARM, the Mali-T720 can be scaled from 1 - 8 cores/clusters (MP1, MP2, ... MP) and clocks up to 650 MHz.
Sometimes the SoC does not specifies the number of cores, therefore this generic page / GPU for the single cluster variant is used and the benchmarks may differ. See e.g. the Mali-T720 MP2 and T720 MP4 pages for comparison.
The MP1 variant is only as fast as the older Mali-400 MP4 graphics card and therefore only suited for low demanding 3D games (Android based). However, the power consumption on the other hand is rather low and therefore the GPU is also suited for small smartphones.
