Note that since prime power order implies nilpotent, and is a prime power, all groups of order 128 are nilpotent.
|Number of groups up to isomorphism||2328|
|Number of abelian groups up to isomorphism||15||Equal to the number of unordered integer partitions of , see classification of finite abelian groups|
|Number of groups of class exactly two up to isomorphism||947|
|Number of groups of class exactly three up to isomorphism||1137|
|Number of groups of class exactly four up to isomorphism||197|
|Number of groups of class exactly five up to isomorphism||29|
|Number of maximal class groups, i.e., groups of class exactly six up to isomorphism||3||classification of finite 2-groups of maximal class. For order , there are exactly three maximal class groups: dihedral, semidihedral, and generalized quaternion. For order 128, the groups are: dihedral group:D128, semidihedral group:SD128, and generalized quaternion group:Q128.|
Here, the rows are arithmetic functions that take values between and , and the columns give the possible values of these functions. The entry in each cell is the number of isomorphism classes of groups for which the row arithmetic function takes the column value. Note that all the row value sums must equal , which is the total number of groups of order .

The order 128 is part of GAP's SmallGroup library. Hence, any group of order 128 can be constructed using the SmallGroup function by specifying its group ID. Also, IdGroup is available, so the group ID of any group of this order can be queried.
Further, the collection of all groups of order 128 can be accessed as a list using GAP's AllSmallGroups function.
Here is GAP's summary information about how it stores groups of this order, accessed using GAP's SmallGroupsInformation function:
gap> SmallGroupsInformation(128); There are 2328 groups of order 128. They are sorted by their ranks. 1 is cyclic. 2 - 163 have rank 2. 164 - 996 have rank 3. 997 - 2149 have rank 4. 2150 - 2318 have rank 5. 2319 - 2327 have rank 6. 2328 is elementary abelian. For the selection functions the values of the following attributes are precomputed and stored: IsAbelian, PClassPGroup, RankPGroup, FrattinifactorSize and FrattinifactorId. This size belongs to layer 2 of the SmallGroups library. IdSmallGroup is available for this size.
