Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC spotted
With reports of an over-heating Snapdragon 810 chipsets seemingly making more waves than the devices powered by the processor, Qualcomm, the Californian semiconductor company behind the Snapdragon brand is hastily readying a successor for the 64-bit mobile CPU.
It appears that the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 was put through some tests earlier today as we came across footprints left at popular benchmark platform Geekbench. The single-core and dual-core results scored by the chipset got an impressive 1732 and 4970 points respectively.
Keep in mind that the processor is still in development and it is more likely than not, for the hardware to be conducted using a non mobile device which directly explains the spiked performance. The Samsung Galaxy S6 which is powered by a Exynos 7420 Octa SoC averages 1486 for example, so you know the final performance of the new chipset might be lower (or even higher) than these unfinished businesses.
