The Qualcomm Snapdragon Graphics Pipeline Explained

Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) are a key part of parallel computing on systems where the workloads are shared between the CPU, GPU and other processors. GPUs break complex problems into millions of separate tasks and work them out at once. That makes them ideal for graphics, where textures, lighting and the rendering of shapes have to be done at once to keep images flying across the screen.

Display Interface Conversions on our Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Based Platforms

Snapdragon™ processors are designed to ensure that the content rendered on connected displays looks great even under tough lighting conditions. The underlying Qualcomm® Technologies make great displays look even better! Snapdragon processors natively support popular graphical displays like MIPI-DSI and HDMI. HDMI displays that output any of the standard resolutions typically work out of the box on Snapdragon based platforms but displays of other electrical interfaces require programming to be done. Different use-cases necessitate different types of electrical interfaces for the connected displays and these signals may not be natively supported.
