Qualcomm Adreno 304 vs Qualcomm Adreno 308

Qualcomm Adreno 304

► remove from comparison

The Qualcomm Adreno 304 is an entry-level integrated graphics card for (mostly Android based) smartphones and tablets that is used for mainstream SoCs of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 series (e. g. MSM8909).

The Adreno 304 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.

As all other Adreno 30x GPUs, the Adreno 304 includes 24 ALUs (6 in other sources) that are built as unified shaders. More information on the architecture can be found on Github.

Qualcomm Adreno 308

► remove from comparison Qualcomm Adreno 308

The Qualcomm Adreno 308 is an integrated graphics unit for smartphones and tablets that is used for mainstream SoCs of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425-series. Like the other Adreno 30x GPUs, the Adreno 308 most likely also features 24 ALUs (unified shaders). More information on the architecture of the A3xx series can be found on github.com.
