Qualcomm Announces Snapdragon S4 Pro: Krait with Adreno 320by Anand Lal Shimpi on February 27, 2012 5:37 AM EST
Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon S4 Pro, a version of the MSM8960 with an Adreno 320 GPU instead of the Adreno 225 that is found in the initial shipping MSM8960, among other unannounced changes. As we found in our first performance look at the MSM8960, the GPU performance is better than previous architectures but not the leap forward we're expecting for this next generation. The Adreno 3xx family should change that.
The Snapdragon S4 Pro should start sampling in 2012, and we may see devices with it in 2012 as well.
