MWC: Qualcomm Goes Pro on Snapdragon S4

February 27th, 2012 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Smartphones & Tablets | No Comments »

Qualcomm has introduced their new S4 Pro Processor that builds on the success of the Snapdragon series. The new SoC goes under the name of S4 MSM8960 and holds an Adreno 320 GPU.

The Adreno 320 brings new multimedia capabilities, including new APIs like OpenCL, to enable use cases such as light-field cameras for mobile devices. In support of 3D graphics APIs, Adreno 320 will enable more realistic 3D graphic effects through hardware acceleration of rendering features like instancing, occlusion queries and multiple render targets. Adreno 320 also includes dedicated hardware to accelerate Windows and fully supports the top game engines in the industry from Unity, Epic and others.

The S4 Pro version of MSM8960 is optimized for the most advanced operating systems, including the Windows 8 system. The first devices with this SoC are expected along the second half of 2012.
