ARM Mali-G72 MP3 vs ARM Mali-G71 MP20 vs ARM Mali-G51 MP4

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.

ARM Mali-G71 MP20

► remove ARM Mali-G71 MP20

The ARM Mali-G71 MP20 is an integrated high-end graphics adapter for ARM SoCs, which was e.g. used in smartphone chip Samsung Exynos 9 8895. It features 20 clusters and is manufactured in 10nm FinFET (in the Exynos 8895). The performance is in the high-end class and therefore all current Android games should run fluently on the chip.

ARM Mali-G51 MP4

► remove ARM Mali-G51 MP4

The ARM Mali-G51 MP4 is an integrated mid-range graphics card for ARM based SoCs (mostly Android based). It was introduced mid 2018 in the HiSilicon Kirin 710 and uses 4 clusters (hence the MP4name). 

The G51 is based on the Bifrost architecture and is intended for cheap mainstream phones. ARM suggests typical clock speeds of 650 MHz with up to 6 cores (MP6).

The GPU supports all modern graphics APIs like OpenGL ES 3.2, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0, DirectX 12 FL9_3 (versus 11 in the G7x line) and Renderscript.
