ARM Mali-G57 MP6 vs ARM Mali-G71 MP8 vs ARM Mali-G68 MP2

ARM Mali-G57 MP6

► remove from comparison ARM Mali-G57 MP6

The ARM Mali-G57 MP6 is an integrated mid-range graphics card for ARM based SoCs (mostly Android based). It was introduced mid 2020 in the HiSilicon Kirin 820 and uses 6 clusters (hence the MP6 name). 

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

The performance of the G57MP6 in our benchmarks (in the Kirin 820 / Huawei P40 Lite) is comparable to the Adreno 620 (e.g. Oppo Find X2) and ARM Mali-G72 MP18 (Note10 Lite).

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

ARM Mali-G71 MP8

► remove from comparison ARM Mali-G71 MP8

The ARM Mali-G71 MP8 is an integrated high-end graphics adapter for ARM SoCs, which was used in combination with the smartphone and tablet chip HiSilicon Kirin 960 in November 2016 for the first time. Based on initial benchmarks, the GPU performance is slightly better compared to the Adreno 530 in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821. It is therefore one of the most powerful graphics units for (Android) devices in the end of 2016.

ARM Mali-G68 MP2

► remove from comparison ARM Mali-G68 MP2

The ARM Mali-G68 MP2 (or G68MC2) is an integrated mid-range graphics card for ARM based SoCs (mostly Android based). The MP2 version uses two of the six possible clusters / cores.

It was introduced mid 2021 in the Samsung Exynos W920 for smartwatches. 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.
