Qualcomm Adreno 642 vs Qualcomm Adreno 612

Qualcomm Adreno 642

► remove from comparison Qualcomm Adreno 642

The Qualcomm Adreno 642 is a smartphone and tablet GPU that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 780G SoC. The chip will be available from mid 2021 and will be used mainly in upper mid-range Android devices.

According to Qualcomm, the Adreno 642 GPU offers a 50% improved performance over the Adreno 620, its predecessor, which is integrated in the Snapdragon 768G SoC. This is also thanks to the fast LPDDR4X-4200 memory support of the SoC.

The Adreno 642 supports OpenCL 2.0 FP, OpenGL ES 3.2 and Vulkan 1.1.

The Snapdragon 780G is manufactured in the modern 5nm LPPE process with EUV at Samsung that should provide a good power efficiency.

Qualcomm Adreno 612

► remove from comparison

The Qualcomm Adreno 612 is a mobile graphics card for mid-range smartphones and tablets (mostly Android based). It is included in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 SoCs and based on the Adreno 600 architecture (like the Adreno 630, which should be fully compatible in software).

The performance is similar to the old Adreno 512 graphics card and therefore only in the lower mid-range of modern smartphone SoCs.

The GPU supports modern standards like Vulkan 1.0 (according to Wikipedia), OpenGL ES 3.2, OpenCL 2.0 and DirectX 11 (FL 11_1).
