Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8260A vs Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8928 vs Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064A

Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8260A

► remove from comparison Qualcomm S4 Plus MSM8260A

The Qualcomm MSM8260A (Snapdragon S4 series) is a ARM based high-end smartphone SoC in 2012. It contains two Krait (ARMv7) CPU cores at 1.5 - 1.7 GHz, a Adreno 225 GPU (400 MHz), a LPDDR2 memory controller (up to 500 MHz) and radio elements.  The chip is produced in 28nm LP (low power process) at TSMC. Compared to the MSM8960, the 8260A does not support LTE.

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

Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8928

► remove from comparison Qualcomm 400 MSM8928

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8928 is an entry-level ARM-SoC for Android smartphones and tablets. It offers four Cortex-A7 cores clocked at up to 1.6 GHz (Quad-Core) as well as an Adreno 305 graphics card. Furthermore, a HSPA+/LTE radio is integrated in the SoC, which is manufactured in a 28-nanometer LP process.

Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064A

► remove from comparison Qualcomm S4 Pro APQ8064A

The Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064A is a high-end SoC for Android smartphones and tablets, which was introduced in 2012. The chip integrates 4 CPU cores, which are based on the ARMv7-compatible, but by Qualcomm designed Krait architecture. This provides a much higher per-MHz performance than Cortex-A9 chips such as Nvidia's Tegra 3 or the Exynos 4412 from Samsung, but does not quite reach the performance of the Cortex-A15 (for example in the Tegra 4). The memory is accessed via 2 x 32 bit LPDDR2 at up to 533 MHz, which offers a bandwidth of 8.5 GB/s.

The APQ8064A integrates an Adreno 320 GPU by IMG, which clocks at 400 MHz and offers a performance of over 50 GFLOPS. Thus, the graphics unit is one of the fastest in the SoC market (early 2013) and is only surpassed by a few models such as the PowerVR SGX554MP4 in the iPad 4. Therefore, even the most demanding 3D games in high resolutions will run fluently (Sony Xperia Z with 1080p display).

Thanks to a dedicated decoder, the SoC can accelerate 1080p video playback up to a frame rate of 30 fps. 3D photos are possible up to a resolution of 20 megapixels. In addition, the chip also integrates a wireless module with Bluetooth 4.0 and WLAN 802.11ac/a/b/g/n. Produced by TSMC in 28 nm (LP), the power consumption should be around 4 watts (estimated, depending on the clock speed).
