Qualcomm Adreno 510 vs Qualcomm Adreno 506 vs Qualcomm Adreno 530

Qualcomm Adreno 510

► remove from comparison Qualcomm Adreno 510

The Qualcomm Adreno 510 is a mobile graphics card for mid-range smartphones and tablets (mostly Android based). It is included in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 and 652 SoCs and based on the Adreno 500 architecture (like the Adreno 520 in the S820, which should be fully compatible in software).

The GPU supports modern standards like Vulkan 1.0 (according to Wikipedia), OpenGL ES 3.1 + AE (3.2 in other sources), OpenCL 2.0 and DirectX 12 (FL 12.1 according to Wikipedia, 11.1 according to Qualcomm). Furthermore, the GPU supports Universal Bandwidth Compression (UBWC) to save memory bandwidth.

Compared the the faster Adreno 530, the 510 is currently produced in the older 28nm process (650 and 652) and should offer less ALUs. The clock speed is not disclosed.

Early benchmarks and performance ratings from Qualcomm position the GPU on a level with the old Adreno 330 (former high end GPU) in the Snapdragon 810. Therefore, it should be able to handle most Android games up to Full HD fluently.

Qualcomm Adreno 506

The Qualcomm Adreno 506 is a mobile graphics card for mid-range smartphones and tablets (mostly Android based). It is included in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoCs and based on the Adreno 500 architecture (like the Adreno 520 in the S820, which should be fully compatible in software).

The GPU supports modern standards like Vulkan 1.0 (according to Wikipedia), OpenGL ES 3.1 + AE (3.2 in other sources), OpenCL 2.0 and DirectX 12 (FL 12.1 according to Wikipedia, 11.1 according to Qualcomm). Furthermore, the GPU supports Universal Bandwidth Compression (UBWC) to save memory bandwidth.

Qualcomm Adreno 530

► remove from comparison Qualcomm Adreno 530

The Qualcomm Adreno 530 is an integrated graphics card for (mostly Android based) smartphones and tablets. It was introduced in the last quarter of 2015 and is integrated in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC. It supports OpenGL ES 3.1 and DirectX 11.1.

The GPU uses a still unknown amount of unified shaders clocked at up to 624 MHz. In 2015 it belongs to the fastest GPU for smartphones. Compared to the predecessor Adreno 430, the 530 is especially faster in demanding benchmarks.
