► 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.

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.
