Qualcomm Adreno 430

The Qualcomm Adreno 430 is an integrated graphics card for (mostly Android based) smartphones and tablets. It was introduced in the beginning of 2015 and is integrated in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC. The graphics card uses a technology called FlexRender. It can switch "intelligently" between TBR (TBR Tile Based Renderer) and the classic direct rendering. It supports OpenGL ES 3.1 and DirectX 11.2 Feature Level 11_1 (compared to ES 3.0 and DirectX 9_3 of the Adreno 330).

The GPU uses 192 unified shaders clocked at up to 650 MHz. In 2015 it belongs to the fastest GPU for smartphones. It positions itself between the PowerVR GX6450 in the Apple A8 and the ARM Mali-T760 MP8 in the Samsung Exynos 7420.

Although the Snapdragon 810 is already manufactured in 20nm, heat can still be an issue (especially in smartphones). This leads to reduced clock rates and performance during continuous load.
