Review Motorola Moto X Smartphone
Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro MSM8960DT | Qualcomm Adreno 320 | 4.70" | 130 g
The Qualcomm MSM8960DT (Snapdragon S4 Pro series) is a fast ARM SoC, which is mainly used in smartphones. It integrates a Krait-based dual-core CPU as well as two additional, power efficient coprocessors for voice recognition and status notifications on the display. Furthermore it features an Adreno 320 graphics card, an integrated LPDDR2 memory controller (dual channel, max. 500 MHz) as well as various radio standards including LTE. The chip is fabricated at TSMC in a 28nm LP process.
The MSM8960DT is based on Qualcomms Krait 300 architecture, which is just slightly faster than the previous Krait 200 in the MSM8960T. However, the Krait design is significantly more powerful than the Cortex-A5, Cortex-A7 and Cortex-A9 architecture from ARM and just behind the high-end Cortex-A15. The two cores are clocked at 1.7 GHz and offer a performance, which is even above some older quad-cores like Nvidia's Tegra 3 or the Samsung Exynos 4412.
The Adreno 320 is an upper class mobile graphics card and the same as found in the Snapdragon 600 SoC. The GPU is usually clocked at 400 MHz and offers enough performance for demanding android games of 2013/2014 or high resolution screens.
Since the MSM8960T only has two CPU cores, the power consumption should be somewhat below quad-cores like the Snapdragon 600. The chip can therefore be used in compact smartphones with a smaller battery.
