Qualcomm Adreno 618 vs ARM Mali-G72 MP3 vs ARM Mali-G68 MP4

Qualcomm Adreno 618

► remove from comparison

The Qualcomm Adreno 618 is a mobile graphics card for upper mid-range smartphones and tablets (mostly Android based). It is included in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 and 730G SoCs and based on the Adreno 600 architecture (like the Adreno 630, which should be fully compatible in software).

In our benchmarks, the Adreno 618 in the Snapdragon 730 was 14 to 30% faster than the Adreno 616 in the Snapdragon 710. The performance in the 730G should be additional 15% faster, due to higher clock rates.

The GPU supports modern standards like Vulkan 1.0 (according to Wikipedia), OpenGL ES 3.2, OpenCL 2.0 and DirectX 11 (FL 11_1).

ARM Mali-G72 MP3

► remove from comparison ARM Mali-G72 MP3

The ARM Mali-G72 MP3 is an integrated mid-range graphics card for ARM based SoCs (mostly Android based). It was introduced early 2018 in the MediaTek Helio P60 and uses 3 clusters (hence the MP3 name). 

The G72 is based on the second generation of the Bifrost architecture and offers improvements in the machine learning efficiency and a bigger tile buffer for 16x anti-aliasing.

The GPU supports all modern graphics APIs like OpenGL ES 3.2, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0, DirectX 12 FL11_1 and Renderscript.

ARM Mali-G68 MP4

► remove from comparison ARM Mali-G68 MP4

The ARM Mali-G68 MP4 (or G68MC4) is an integrated mid-range graphics card for ARM based SoCs (mostly Android based). The MP4 version uses four of the six possible clusters / cores.

It was introduced mid 2021 in the Mediatek Dimensity 900. It is based on the Valhall architecture and is advertised by ARM as a "sub-premium GPU". It offers all features of the Mali-G78 series including improvements for battery runtime and machine learning.
