Qualcomm APQ8084 appears on AnTuTu Benchmark database. New Adreno 420 GPU with Dx 11.1 Compute support

Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8084 has appeared on AnTuTu benchmark's database. Currently, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 is the fastest mobile compute CPU. Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974) is a quad-core part and comes usually with a Adreno 330 GPU part. The new APQ8084 comes with a new Adreno 420 instead.

Comparing both GPU parts, Adreno 420 supports Direct X 11.1 Compute API, which is found prevalently in PC gaming hardware. Additionally, Snapdragon APQ8084 is clocked higher at 2.5GHz as compared to 2.3GHz on the MSM8974AB.

However, looking at the benchmark results from AnTuTu, it seems that the overall performance is still very similar to the current Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 package. This is probably due to the test carried out on an early sample device and that optimization has not been done.

It is highly possible that manufacturers will start coming out with devices based on the new components from Qualcomm very soon. This new chip is sure to be found in the next flagship phones for many manufacturers.
