ARM Mali-G68 MP2 vs ARM Mali-G72 MP12

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.

ARM Mali-G72 MP12

► remove from comparison ARM Mali-G72 MP12

The ARM Mali-G72 MP12 is an integrated high-end graphics card for ARM based SoCs (mostly Android based). It was introduced in October 2017 in the Huawei Mate 10 and uses 12 clusters (hence the MP12 name). In our benchmarks it performs between a Adreno 530 and 540 and is therefore suitable for demanding mobile games.

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.
