ARM Mali-G72 MP18 vs ARM Mali-G72 MP3

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.

ARM Mali-G72 MP3

► remove 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.
