General info

1.Has integrated graphics
Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 MSM8939
With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.
2.GPU clock speed

500MHz (Qualcomm Adreno 405)

The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
3.Supports 64-bit
Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 MSM8939 (ARM Cortex-A53)
A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit apps.
4.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.
5.DirectX version


DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
6.OpenGL ES version


OpenGL ES is used for games on mobile devices such as smartphones. Newer versions support better graphics.


1.CPU speed

4 x 1.5GHz & 4 x 1GHz

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.
3.Uses big.LITTLE technology
Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 MSM8939
Using big.LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores to maximize performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking e-mail will use the less powerful cores to maximize battery life.
4.L2 cache


A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
5.L1 cache


A larger L1 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
6.L2 core


More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.


1.RAM speed


It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
2.maximum memory bandwidth


This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.
3.memory channels


More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.
4.eMMC version


A higher version of eMMC allows faster memory interfaces, having a positive effect on the performance of a device. For example, when transferring files from your computer to the internal storage over USB.


1.Has integrated LTE
Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 MSM8939
The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.
2.Has dynamic frequency scaling
Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 MSM8939 (ARM Cortex-A53)
Dynamic frequency scaling is a technology that allows the processor to conserve power and reduce noise when it is under a light load.
3.bits executed at a time
NEON provides acceleration for media processing, such as listening to MP3s.
4.Has NX bit
Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 MSM8939 (ARM Cortex-A53)
NX bit helps protect the computer from malicious attacks.
5.Supports hardware-assisted virtualization
Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 MSM8939 (ARM Cortex-A53)
It is easier to obtain better performance when using virtualization if it is hardware-assisted.
6.Has out-of-order execution
Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 MSM8939 (ARM Cortex-A53)
Out-of-order execution is used in CPUs to make use of instruction cycles that would normally be wasted due to delays.


1.pixel rate

4.8 GPixel/s (Qualcomm Adreno 405)

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