Qualcomm Adreno 305

The Qualcomm Adreno 305 is an integrated graphics unit for smartphones and tablets that is used for mainstream SoCs of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400- an S4 Plus-series (e. g. 8930ABSamsung Galaxy Mega 6.3). The Adreno 305 usually only offers half of the performance of the the Adreno 320 and is only slightly ahead of the Mali-400 MP4. Very demanding Android games of 2013 may not run completely smooth, but simple titles like Angry Birds and the usual multimedia tasks are no problem.
