Qualcomm Adreno 304

The Qualcomm Adreno 304 is an entry-level integrated graphics card for (mostly Android based) smartphones and tablets that is used for mainstream SoCs of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 series (e. g. MSM8909).

The Adreno 304 usually only offers half of the performance of the the Adreno 320 and is only slightly ahead of the Mali-400 MP4. Very demanding Android games of 2013 may not run completely smooth, but simple titles like Angry Birds and the usual multimedia tasks are no problem.

As all other Adreno 30x GPUs, the Adreno 304 includes 24 ALUs (6 in other sources) that are built as unified shaders. More information on the architecture can be found on Github.
