Qualcomm Adreno 512 vs Qualcomm Adreno 504

Qualcomm Adreno 512

► remove

The Qualcomm Adreno 512 is a mobile graphics card for mid-range smartphones and tablets (mostly Android based). It is included in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoCs and based on the Adreno 500 architecture (like the Adreno 520 in the S820, which should be fully compatible in software).

According to Qualcomm up to 30% faster than the previous generation (Adreno 510?).

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 504

The Qualcomm Adreno 504 is a mobile graphics card for lower mid-range smartphones and tablets (mostly Android based). It is included in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 429 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.

According to Qualcomm, the GPU is 50% faster than the previous Adreno 308 in the Snapdragon 425.

In the Snapdragon 429, the Adreno 504 is manufactured in the modern 12nm process and should be very power efficient.
