Now, if you’re wondering why Microsoft didn’t use a Snapdragon 400, allow me to explain the difference between that and the 212. Both the Snapdragon 400 and 212 are quad core processors and use 4 Cortex A7 cores, and the former has a higher clock rate for the processor and an Adreno 306 GPU, while the SD212 has an Adreno 304 GPU.
