Qualcomm Adreno 418 vs Qualcomm Adreno 405

Qualcomm Adreno 418

► remove Qualcomm Adreno 418

The Qualcomm Adreno 418 is an integrated graphics card for (mostly Android based) smartphones and tablets. It is integrated in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 SoC and was announced in mid 2014. The GPU supports OpenGL ES 3.1 and DirectX 11 feature level 11_1 (with hardware tessellation). The graphics card uses a technology called FlexRender to intelligently switch between TBR (TBR Tile Based Renderer) and the classic direct rendering.

Compared to the Adreno 420, the performance of the 418 is about 20 percent slower (at 600 MHz). This puts the Adreno 418 in the upper middle class in 2015 and even demanding (Android) games should run fluently.

Qualcomm Adreno 405

► remove

The Qualcomm Adreno 405 is an integrated graphics card for (mostly Android based) smartphones and tablets. It was announced in 2014 and is used in SoCs like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 415, 425, 610 or 615. Depending on the used SoC and device, the clock rate of the Adreno 405 is around 550 MHz. 

The Adreno 405 features 48 ALUs (unified shaders) and supports OpenGL ES 3.1 and DirectX 11.2 (Feature Level 11_1).

The performance of the Adreno 405 reaches only 40 % of the high end Adreno 420 (in the Snapdragon 805). This means its on a level with the older Adreno 320 and the PowerVR G6200.
