ARM Mali-G78 MP22 vs ARM Mali-G57 MP4 vs ARM Mali-G72 MP18

ARM Mali-G78 MP22

► remove from comparison ARM Mali-G78 MP22

The ARM Mali-G78MP22 is an integrated high-end graphics card for ARM based SoCs (mostly Android based). It was introduced late 2020 in the HiSilicon Kirin 9000E (e.g. Huawei MatePad Pro 12.6). It integrates 22 of the 24 possible cores and is based on the second generation of the Valhal architecture. According to ARM it offers two new features: asynchronous top level and fragment dependency tracking.

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.

ARM Mali-G57 MP4

► remove from comparison ARM Mali-G57 MP4

The ARM Mali-G57 MP4 is an integrated mid-range graphics card for ARM based SoCs (mostly Android based). It was introduced late 2020 in the MediaTek Dimensity 800 and uses 4 clusters (hence the MC4/MP4 name). 

The G57 is based on the new Valhall architecture and is intended for mainstream phones. 

The performance of the G57MP4 in our benchmarks is comparable to the Adreno 620.

The GPU supports all modern graphics APIs like OpenGL ES 3.2, Vulkan 1.1, OpenCL 2.0 and Renderscript.

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.
