Qualcomm Reference Designs also available in Snapdragon S1, and S4 Play processors.

Snapdragon demonstrates its Superior modem performance

Qualcomm has already shown how power-efficient its modem can be, but now it’s time to bear witness to what it can do for download speeds, compared to our quad-core competitor. The two smartphones in the video were used as 3G mobile hotspots tethered to their respective desktop with WiFi-disabled, thereby isolating the modem. With the modem as the only active component for downloads, you can see how much faster Snapdragon is when downloading web pages and streaming HD videos. This means you can consume more of the web, with fewer interruptions.

Modem Thermals

Power Consumption: Illustrated

Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ mobile processors place equal priority on creating cellular modems that are superior in performance and as power efficient as its CPUs and GPUs. Smartphones that use Snapdragon processors have cellular modems integrated into the processor. Devices with Qualcomm Snapdragon processors are designed to allow the integrated modem to use very little power, so their smartphone battery will last all day.

Snapdragon FlexRender - Rendered Useful

What is designed to ensure your graphics are quick, no matter how complex? That would be FlexRender. FlexRender is a proprietary technology built into our Adreno 300-series GPUs that helps render graphics for gaming faster and more efficiently.

Asynchronous Multi-Processing Snapdragon Processors Improve Battery Life and Efficiency

Travis Lanier explains the benefits of the asynchronous multi-processing technology inside Snapdragon Processors.

Qualcomm Quick Charge

Qualcomm Quick Charge is a comprehensive suite of battery management technologies designed for faster, safer, and more reliable charging. Watch as we demostrate the benefits available with Quick Charge 1.0, and look forward to the capabilities coming with the release of Quick Charge 2.0.

Snapdragon - Unified Shader Architecture

How do Snapdragon processors render graphics so fast and so crisply? A little thing called Unified Shader Architecture, smart technology designed to dynamically adjust how it allocates its resources depending on the type of graphics being rendered.

Snapdragon 400: GPS Performance - Faster Location Fix, More Satellites in View

The video starts with a popular maps application and shows how fast a device with aQualcomm® Snapdragon™ 400 processor with 1.2GHz dual-core CPUs acquires a GPS satellite signal and calculates a position solution. We then use a GPS test, which is publicly available on Android, to see how many active satellites are in view and ready in the Snapdragon device versus a competitive device. This goes to show: More CPU cores doesn't necessarily mean better performance.

Snapdragon 400: Gaming Benchmarks - Gaming Without the Dropped Frames

In this video, we take two widely used gaming benchmarks to test both speed and ability to render smooth graphics without dropping frames. See the performance results of a device with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 1.2GHz custom designed, dual-core Krait CPUs compared to a competitor's device, running on a 1.2GHz quad-core processor. The two apps shown in this video are publicly available on Android. This goes to show: More CPU cores doesn't necessarily mean better performance.

Snapdragon 400: Smooth - Fish-Tank Benchmark Smooth

This video shows how the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 1.2GHz custom designed, dual-core Krait CPUs can deliver a smooth web surfing experience. The Fish Tank IE test is a GPU-accelerated web page that runs in your web browser. We take the native browsers and showcase how smoothly and fast the fish move in a virtual fish tank on a device with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor compared to a competitor's device, running on a 1.2GHz quad-core processor. This goes to show: More CPU cores doesn't necessarily mean better performance.

Snapdragon 400: System-Level Benchmarks Performance Comparison

The video takes a widely used system-level benchmark and runs it through its course comparing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 1.2GHz custom designed, dual-core Krait CPUs with a competitor's 1.2GHz quad-core processor. This particular benchmark taxes the major components in a processor (aside from the number of CPU cores), including memory, I/O, and 2D/3D graphics. The scores speak for themselves, which goes to show: More CPU cores doesn't necessarily mean better performance.
