Problems with overheating the 64-bit output delay Snapdragon 810 Android-flagships 2015




iPhone 5s, released in 2013, became the world’s first smartphone, created on the basis of a 64-bit architecture. While many said that this unintended function: Qualcomm authoritatively stated that this is largely a gimmick rather than a real technological breakthrough. Qualcomm later recanted and called processors Apple «the future of the mobile industry.” Since then, many manufacturers have announced a 64-bit mobile chips, but Qualcomm itself faced with serious problems in the production of top-end SoC Snapdragon platform 810 that supports 64 bits.


According to the newspaper Barron’s and The Korea Times, 20-nanometer Snapdragon processor 810 has a defect that leads to overheating when operating at frequencies above 1.2-1.4 GHz. This forces the processor clock speed limit, from which suffers performance. Geekbench benchmark data show that under load Snapdragon 810 inferior in speed Snapdragon 805, which in turn is not far in the performance of the previous generation Snapdragon 801.

Qualcomm hastily plans to start production of a new revision of the processor, which can not leave before the middle of the second quarter. Along the way, it became known that 28-nm chip Snapdragon 615 also has defects, which, however, are not so clearly affect its performance.

Now, look forward to a speedy exit Snapdragon processor 810 manufacturers Android-flagships have delay announcements respective smartphones. Probably, Samsung in the case of the upcoming flagship Galaxy S6 will have to switch to using its own processors. How to enter other manufacturers, to predict difficult.

Supply problems Snapdragon 810 endanger releases LG G4, HTC One M9, LG G Flex 2 and other flagships. It is possible that regular customers Qualcomm reconsider their priorities in favor of solutions from MediaTek or NVIDIA, and Samsung and LG will throw all their forces to promote their own versions of smartphones platforms Exynos and Odin.
