Qualcomm demos Adreno 420 3D graphics, Camera and Video Prowess | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


We’ve been hearing “console-quality graphics” used to describe GPUs in mobile chipsets since the Tegra 2 but that was wishful thinking.


Qualcomm is making a similar claim for its latest generation Adreno 420 GPU only this time it created cool demos to back that up.


The GPU found inside the new Snapdragon 805 uses its power for more than just rendering 3D graphics in games – Qualcomm also worked on video playback (3D and UHD) and even assisting with camera image processing.
