ARM Mali-G72 MP12 vs ARM Mali-G72 MP18

ARM Mali-G72 MP12

► remove 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.

ARM Mali-G72 MP18

► remove 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.
