This is Qual­comm's high­est per­form­ing GPU, which can re­port­edly de­liver up to 40 per­cent more per­for­mance than the Adreno 430 GPU on the Snap­dragon 810. In fact, Qual­comm is also claim­ing a sim­i­lar 40-per­cent re­duc­tion in power con­sump­tion com­pared to the pre­vi­ous gen­er­a­tion chip, so you should be able to run more de­mand­ing games for longer.

The GPU op­er­ates between 133MHz and 634MHz, and fea­tures small ar­chi­tec­tural tweaks over the Adreno 430 for fur­ther im­prove­ments. For in­stance, it now makes bet­ter use of data com­pres­sion when han­dling and mov­ing data around in or­der to lower power con­sump­tion. Video pro­cess­ing is also another area where Qual­comm has achieved marked in­creases in com­pute per­for­mance, up to 2.5x bet­ter than the Adreno 400 se­ries GPU.

The Adreno 530 will also sup­port Vulkan 1.0, the re­cently-re­leased cross-plat­form, open-source API. Vulkan gives game and ap­pli­ca­tion de­vel­op­ers ex­plicit con­trol over the GPU's re­sources and al­lows them to lever­age multi-threaded ar­chi­tec­tures more ef­fec­tively, and sup­port for Vulkan thus po­si­tions Snap­dragon 820-equipped phones to en­joy the im­proved per­for­mance and ex­pe­ri­ence of­fered by ap­pli­ca­tions that use Vulkan.
