Adreno™ Graphics Processing Units

Adreno 320 GPU

The newly sampling S4 (APQ8064) processor features the Adreno 320 – based on a totally new, very high performance programmable architecture with up to four times the performance of Adreno 225, providing a superior user experience for HTML5 Web browsing, 3D games, 3D user interfaces, and other graphics applications.

  • The Adreno 320 also infuses S4 Pro (APQ8064, MSM8960T) and S4 Prime with new multimedia capabilities, including computational camera—the ability to tap directly into the computational capability of the Adreno 320 GPU through new APIs like OpenCL, to enable next-generation use cases such as light-field cameras for mobile devices.
  • In support of next-generation 3D graphics APIs, Adreno 320 will enable more realistic 3D graphic effects through hardware acceleration of advanced rendering features like instancing, occlusion queries and multiple render targets.

Adreno 220 GPU

Available in the Snapdragon S3 chipset, the Adreno 220 GPU features an enhanced level of 3D graphics performance, allowing for high-end, immersive gaming experiences previously limited to PCs and game consoles.

  • More than five times the graphics performance of the Adreno 200 GPU
  • Concurrent CPU, DSP, graphics, and MDP
  • Streaming textures that can combine video, camera, SVG and other image surfaces with 3D graphics
