ARM Mali-G72 MP3 vs ARM Mali-G77 MP9

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.

ARM Mali-G77 MP9

► remove from comparison ARM Mali-G77 MP9

The ARM Mali-G77MP9 is an integrated high-end graphics card for ARM based SoCs (mostly Android based). It was introduced early 2020 in the Mediatek Dimensity 1000 (and 1000+). It integrates 9 of the 16 possible cores and is based on the Valhal architecture. According to ARM it offers improvements in the machine learning efficiency (+60%), a 30% improved performance and a 30% improved efficiency compared to the previous generation (G76).

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.
