Delivering Increased Energy-Efficiency for Complex Content

Arm Mali-G72 is the second-generation Bifrost-based graphics processing unit (GPU) for high-performance products. Benefitting from advanced technologies, Mali-G72 adds increased tile buffer memory supporting up to 16 times multi-sample anti-aliasing at minimal performance cost. Arithmetic optimizations tailored to complex machine learning and high-fidelity mobile gaming uses provide higher energy efficiency, better performance density, and greater overall performance than previous devices.

Features and Benefits
Console Quality for Mobile

Mali-G72 is designed for high-fidelity mobile gaming and virtual reality (VR). It enables console-quality gaming on mobile devices and sustained performance for complex graphics.

Improved Efficiency

Better machine learning (ML) efficiency from Mali-G72 means reduced bandwidth and faster ML inference on the device itself, cutting latency and boosting the performance of mobile apps.

Flexible Optimization

With its multiple Bifrost architectural optimizations, Mali-G72 provides a careful balance of performance and efficiency, vital to those partners targeting a range of devices.

Use Cases
Where Innovation and Ideas Come to Life

Virtual Reality

As virtual reality (VR) moves to mobile devices, engineers are challenged to provide the required compute power within a fixed 2-3-watt thermal budget.

The innovations in Bifrost and the scalability of Mali-G72 have been developed to address these key requirements and challenges to power the next generation of mobile VR devices. With 40 percent more performance and 25 percent higher energy efficiency compared to Mali-G71, Mali-G72 can support complex uses for longer periods, without overheating the system or killing the battery.

High-Fidelity Mobile Gaming

High-fidelity mobile gaming is growing twice as fast as standard mobile gaming. Mali-G72 ensures that graphics technology supports photorealistic visuals. Arm partners can implement bigger, more capable configurations to give the end user the best possible experience.
