ARM Mali-T830 MP3 vs ARM Mali-T880 MP4 vs ARM Mali-T880 MP12
ARM Mali-T830 MP3► remove
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.
ARM Mali-T880 MP4► remove
The ARM Mali-T880 MP4 is a mobile graphics solution that can be found in ARM SoCs like the HiSilicon Kirin 950. The chip is available since Q1/2016 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 MP4 version features 4 clusters/cores.
The MP4 version that is used in the HiSilicon /Huawei SoC is clocked with up to 900 MHz and performs similar to a Adreno 420 (Snapdragon 805) and PowerVR GX6450 (Apple A8). However, the Mali-T760 MP8 in the Samsung Exynos 7420 pulls ahead thanks to its 8 clusters. Still, the Mali-T880MP4 offers enough power for demanding Android games in Full HD.
Thanks to the 16nm process in the Kirin 950, the Mali-T880 can be used in smartphones like the Huawei Mate 8.
ARM Mali-T880 MP12► remove
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.
