Qualcomm Adreno 740

Qualcomm Adreno 740

The Qualcomm Adreno 740 is a smartphone and tablet GPU that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. The chip will be available starting early 2023 and will be used mainly in high-end Android devices. 

According to Qualcomm, the Adreno GPU offers a 25% improved performance compared to the Adreno 730 predecessor in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. First benchmarks show that the Adreno GPU can even beat the Apple A16 GPU (iPhone 14 Pro series) in synthetic benchmarks. Therefore, the Adreno 740 is the fastest graphics chip for smartphones in 2022.

The iGPU supports hardware accelerated ray tracing and a game post processing accelerator (for bloom, depth of field and motion blur). Another first, is the support for Vulkan 1.3.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is produced in the modern 4nm process at TSMC.
