ARM Mali-G57 MP2 vs ARM Mali-G72 MP18

ARM Mali-G57 MP2

► remove from comparison ARM Mali-G57 MP2

The ARM Mali-G57 MP2 is an integrated mid-range graphics card for ARM based SoCs (mostly Android based). It was introduced mid 2021 in the MediaTek Dimensity 700 and uses 2 clusters (hence the MC2/MP2 name). 

The G57 is based on the new Valhall architecture and is intended for mainstream phones. 

The performance of the G57MP2 in our benchmarks is comparable to the Adreno 618.

The GPU supports all modern graphics APIs like OpenGL ES 3.2, Vulkan 1.1, OpenCL 2.0 and Renderscript.

ARM Mali-G72 MP18

► remove from comparison ARM Mali-G72 MP18

The ARM Mali-G72 MP18 is an integrated high-end graphics card for ARM based SoCs (mostly Android based). It was introduced in early 2018 in the Exynos 9810 (e.g. Galaxy S9). It integrates 18 of the 32 possible cores and is based on the second generation of the Bifrost architecture. According to ARM it offers improvements in the machine learning efficiency and a bigger tile buffer for 16x anti-aliasing.

In our benchmarks it slightly below a Adreno 540 and is therefore suitable for demanding mobile games.

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