ARM Mali-T830 MP3 vs ARM Mali-T880 MP12

ARM Mali-T830 MP3

► remove ARM Mali-T830 MP3

The ARM Mali-T830 MP3 is an integrated graphics card for smartphones and tablets. It first appeared in the Samsung Exynos 7880 in the beginning of 2017. The chip features three clusters and supports OpenGL ES 3.2, OpenCL 1.2 and DirectX 11 (FL 9_3). 

The performance should be similar to the old ARM Mali-T860 MP2 and therefore all typical Android games should run fluently.

The ARM Mali-T830 MP3 in the Exynos 7880 is manufactured in 14 nm and therefore also suited for smaller smartphones.

► remove ARM Mali-T880 MP12

The ARM Mali-T880 MP12 is a mobile graphics solution that can be found in ARM SoCs like the Samsung Exynos 8890. The chip is available since Q1/2016 (e.g. in some of the Galaxy S7 variants) and supports OpenGL ES 3.1, OpenCL 1.2 and DirectX 11.2 (FL 11_2). The Mali-T880 can be built with 1 to 16 clusters, where the MP12 version features 12 clusters/cores.

The MP12 version that is used in the Samsung Exynos 8890 is clocked with up to 650 MHz and is a bit slower than the Adreno 530 in the Snapdragon 820 SoC. However, it still belongs to the high-end graphics cards for ARM based SoCs.
