ARM Mali-T880 MP4 vs ARM Mali-T830 MP2

ARM Mali-T880 MP4

► remove ARM Mali-T880 MP4

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-T830 MP2

► remove ARM Mali-T830 MP2

The ARM Mali-T830 MP2 is an integrated graphics card for smartphones and tablets. It first appeared in the HiSilicon Kirin 650 in the beginning of 2016. The chip features two 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-450 MP4 and therefore non demanding Android games should run fluently.

The ARM Mali-T830 MP2 in the Kirin 650 is manufactured at TSMC at 16nm FF+ and therefore also suited for smaller smartphones.
