Price comparison

General info

1.Has integrated graphics
Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8226 (1.2GHz)
With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.
2.GPU clock speed
The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
3.semiconductor size


Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
4.DirectX version
DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
5.OpenCL version
Some apps use OpenCL to apply the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) for non-graphical computing. Newer versions introduce more functionality and better performance.
6.OpenVG version
OpenVG is used to improve the rendering of 2D graphics on mobile devices, for example the user interface (UI) on a smartphone.


1.CPU speed

4 x 1.2GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.CPU threads


More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.


1.Has dynamic frequency scaling
Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8226 (1.2GHz) (ARM Cortex-A7)
Dynamic frequency scaling is a technology that allows the processor to conserve power and reduce noise when it is under a light load.
2.bits executed at a time
NEON provides acceleration for media processing, such as listening to MP3s.
3.Has NX bit
Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8226 (1.2GHz) (ARM Cortex-A7)
NX bit helps protect the computer from malicious attacks.
4.Has out-of-order execution
Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8226 (1.2GHz) (ARM Cortex-A7)
Out-of-order execution is used in CPUs to make use of instruction cycles that would normally be wasted due to delays.
5.Has TrustZone
Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8226 (1.2GHz) (ARM Cortex-A7)
A technology integrated into the processor to secure the device for use with features such as mobile payments and streaming video using digital rights management (DRM).
6.VFP version
Vector Floating-Point (VFP) is used by the processor to deliver increased performance in areas such as digital imaging.


1.floating-point performance

0.02 TFLOPS (Qualcomm Adreno 305)

Floating-point performance is a measurement of the raw processing power of the GPU.
2.pixel rate

0.8 GPixel/s (Qualcomm Adreno 305)

The number of pixels that can be rendered to the screen every second.
