ARM Mali-G72 MP18 vs ARM Mali-G57 MP6

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.

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.
