Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8928 vs Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 MSM8260 vs Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8930

Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8928

► remove Qualcomm 400 MSM8928

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8928 is an entry-level ARM-SoC for Android smartphones and tablets. It offers four Cortex-A7 cores clocked at up to 1.6 GHz (Quad-Core) as well as an Adreno 305 graphics card. Furthermore, a HSPA+/LTE radio is integrated in the SoC, which is manufactured in a 28-nanometer LP process.

Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 MSM8260

The Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 MSM8260 is an entry level SoC for smartphones and tablets (mostly Android based). It contains two Scorpion cores (enhanced ARM Cortex-A8) clocked at up to 1.5 GHz, a Adreno 220 graphics card and radio elements. Compared to the similar MSM8660, the 8260 does not include support for CDMA2000.

The similar named MSM8260A already contains the faster Krait cores and the slightly faster Adreno 225 graphics card.

Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8930

► remove Qualcomm S4 Plus MSM8930

The Qualcomm MSM8930 (Snapdragon S4 Plus series) is an ARM based high-end smartphone SoC in 2012. It contains two Krait (ARMv7) CPU cores at up to 1.2 GHz, a Adreno 305 GPU, a single channel LPDDR2 memory controller and LTE radio elements.  The chip is produced in 28nm LP (low power process) at TSMC. Compared to the MSM8960, the 8930 is lower clocked, offers only a single channel memory controller, but has a faster GPU.

The Krait cores should offer a slightly better performance as the standard Cortex-A9 cores and are compatible to the NEON SIMD extensions.
