Qualcomm Adreno 306 vs Qualcomm Adreno 302

Qualcomm Adreno 306

► remove from comparison Qualcomm Adreno 306

The Qualcomm Adreno 306 is an integrated graphics unit for smartphones and tablets that is used for mainstream SoCs of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410-series (e.g., Snapdragon 410 MSM8916). According the Qualcomm, the Adreno 306 offers a reduced power consumption compared to the older Adreno 305

The performance looks to be on par with the older Adreno 305 (at least in our review of a HTC Desire 510) leading to the assumtion that the technical specifications should be similar.

Qualcomm Adreno 302

► remove from comparison Qualcomm Adreno 302

The Qualcomm Adreno 302 is an integrated graphics card for smartphones and tablets that is used for entry-level SoCs of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 series (e. g. MSM8210). The Adreno 302 is a slightly lower clocked version of the Adreno 305. 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. The GPU offers unified shaders and supports OpenGL ES 3.0, OpenCL and DirectX 9.3.
