ARM Mali-T720 MP4 vs ARM Mali-T760 MP2 vs ARM Mali-T720

ARM Mali-T720 MP4

► remove ARM Mali-T720 MP4

The ARM Mali-T720 MP4 (or T724) is a mobile graphics solution found in many ARM SoCs. The chip has been available since Q1/2015 in the Mediatek MT6753 and other low-end SoCs. Besides OpenGL ES 3.1, the GPU supports OpenCL 1.1 and DirectX 11 FL9_3. 

The T720 MP4 offers 4 shader clusters at up to 600 MHz (40.8 GFLOPS). Therefore, the GPU should perform slightly worse than an Adreno 405 or PowerVR G6200. Modern Android games should therefore run fluently in 720p.

The GPU is typically built for smartphone SoCs in 28nm.

ARM Mali-T760 MP2

► remove ARM Mali-T760 MP2

The ARM Mali-T760 MP2 is a mobile graphics solution for (mostly Android based) smartphones and tablets. The chip is available since Q1/2015 and for example integrated in the MediaTek MT6752 SoC. Besides OpenGL ES 3.1, the GPU supports OpenCL 1.1 as well as DirectX 11. According to ARM, the Mali-T760 can be scaled from 1 - 16 cores/clusters.

The MP2 version offers 2 clusters clocked at up to 700 MHz (48 GFLOPS). Therefore, it only offers one third of the theoretical performance of the T760MP6 version. The gaming performance should be similar to the Adreno 405 or PowerVR G6200. Therefore, it is situated in the middle class in 2014 and all games of that year should run fluently.

Due to the only 2 cores, the GPU is also suited for small tablets and smartphones.

ARM Mali-T720

► remove ARM Mali-T720

The ARM Mali-T720 is a mobile graphics solution that can be found in ARM SoCs. The chip is available since 2014. Besides OpenGL ES 3.1, the GPU supports OpenCL 1.1 as well as DirectX 11 FL9_3. According to ARM, the Mali-T720 can be scaled from 1 - 8 cores/clusters (MP1, MP2, ... MP) and clocks up to 650 MHz.

Sometimes the SoC does not specifies the number of cores, therefore this generic page / GPU for the single cluster variant is used and the benchmarks may differ. See e.g. the Mali-T720 MP2 and T720 MP4 pages for comparison.

The MP1 variant is only as fast as the older Mali-400 MP4 graphics card and therefore only suited for low demanding 3D games (Android based). However, the power consumption on the other hand is rather low and therefore the GPU is also suited for small smartphones.
