Amlogic S912 Processor Could Feature an ARM Mali-T830 GPU

Amlogic S912 launch has been delayed by a few months, and if we are to believe the data from GFXBench (test 1; test 2), the reason could be that they switched the design from a Mali-T7xx GPU to a more powerful Mali-T830 GPU.

S912 processor is still based on four Cortex A53 core @ up to 2.0 GHz like in S905, but the GPU will be much more powerful.

One person noticed these results and wrote an analysis and comparison (in Korean) against the Mali-860MP2 GPU found in Mediatek MT6755 SoC (Helio P10) SoC.

 Offscreen  Manhattan 3.1  Manhattan  T-Rex  ALU  ALU2  Fillrate  Texturing
 MT6755  4.8  7.2  17.2  6.0  1012
 S912  4.4  7.0  16.3  34.7  5.3  1283  1000

So while Mali-860MP2 is faster for all listed benchmark the advantage is not that great. His analysis  compared benchmarks (read post for details) concludes that the GPU in S912 could be clocked at around 650 MHz.

Thanks to Adriano for the tip.

  1. Out of curiosity I tested my MT6595M device and I get the following scores:
    Manhattan 3.1 Manhattan T-Rex ALU ALU2 Fillrate Texturing
    6.0 6.0 18 10 1511

    So, while it is great news to hear they updated the GPU to something newer the graphical performance is still not that impressive, and even though already 2 years old RK3288 remains the best SOC if you intend to game on your mini pc. Hope to see more devices with MT8173 since this seems to be the best all around mini pc SOC.
