ARM Mali-450 MP4 vs ARM Mali-T720 MP4

ARM Mali-450 MP4

► remove ARM Mali-450 MP4

The ARM Mali-450 MP4 is an OpenGL ES 2.0 capable GPU for ARM SoCs (System on a Chip). It is primarily designed for tablets and smartphones with mobile operating systems like Android. MP4 is the version with four cores (so called fragment processors). 

ARM Mali-T720 MP4

► remove ARM Mali-T720 MP4

The ARM Mali-T720 MP4 (or T724) is a mobile graphics solution found in many ARM SoCs. The chip has been available since Q1/2015 in the Mediatek MT6753 and other low-end SoCs. Besides OpenGL ES 3.1, the GPU supports OpenCL 1.1 and DirectX 11 FL9_3. 

The T720 MP4 offers 4 shader clusters at up to 600 MHz (40.8 GFLOPS). Therefore, the GPU should perform slightly worse than an Adreno 405 or PowerVR G6200. Modern Android games should therefore run fluently in 720p.

The GPU is typically built for smartphone SoCs in 28nm.
