Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8930

Qualcomm S4 Plus MSM8930

The Qualcomm MSM8930 (Snapdragon S4 Plus series) is an ARM based high-end smartphone SoC in 2012. It contains two Krait (ARMv7) CPU cores at up to 1.2 GHz, a Adreno 305 GPU, a single channel LPDDR2 memory controller and LTE radio elements.  The chip is produced in 28nm LP (low power process) at TSMC. Compared to the MSM8960, the 8930 is lower clocked, offers only a single channel memory controller, but has a faster GPU.

The Krait cores should offer a slightly better performance as the standard Cortex-A9 cores and are compatible to the NEON SIMD extensions.
