Qualcomm Adreno 418

Qualcomm Adreno 418

The Qualcomm Adreno 418 is an integrated graphics card for (mostly Android based) smartphones and tablets. It is integrated in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 SoC and was announced in mid 2014. The GPU supports OpenGL ES 3.1 and DirectX 11 feature level 11_1 (with hardware tessellation). The graphics card uses a technology called FlexRender to intelligently switch between TBR (TBR Tile Based Renderer) and the classic direct rendering.

Compared to the Adreno 420, the performance of the 418 is about 20 percent slower (at 600 MHz). This puts the Adreno 418 in the upper middle class in 2015 and even demanding (Android) games should run fluently.
