ARM Mali-G68 MP4 vs ARM Mali-G78 MP24 vs ARM Mali-G72 MP3

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.

ARM Mali-G78 MP24

► remove from comparison ARM Mali-G78 MP24

The ARM Mali-G78MP24 is an integrated high-end graphics card for ARM based SoCs (mostly Android based). It was introduced late 2020 in the HiSilicon Kirin 9000 (e.g. Huawei Mate 40). It integrates all of the 24 possible cores and is based on the second generation of the Valhal architecture. According to ARM it offers two new features: asynchronous top level and fragment dependency tracking.

The graphics card is one of the fastest in Android devices of 2020 and therefore able to run all games fluently.

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

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.
