Qualcomm Adreno 405

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.
