Snapdragon 820 benchmark confirms four Kyro cores

By July 4th, 2015 AT 10:38 AM

Qualcomm has been pretty much the leader of the pack in the top end smartphone chipset arena. But the heating issues of its current flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 810 have kept it in the limelight for all the wrong reasons. As a result, many OEMs ditched the chipset for their flagship devices, including Samsung.

Qualcomm seems to have gone back to the drawing table for its next flagship smartphone and is busy working on the successor of the Snapdragon 810 these days. It is expected to come with the name Snapdragon 820 and its details seem to have leaked on to the interweb while it was undergoing benchmarking.

The single-core score (714) of the chipset with the model number MSM8996 (Snapdragon 820) was better than its Snapdragon 810 counterpart and the Exynos 7420 chipset from Samsung. The score, however, slid below the Exynos chipset when it came to multi-core (1942). But what needs to be taken into consideration that the benchmarking test had the four Kyro cores clocked at merely 1.46GHz instead of the 3GHz they are capable of.

The future tests by the company may see the chipset clocking higher speeds. The Snapdragon 820 will be a 64-bit quad-core chipset and will be based on Samsung’s 14nm fabrication process. This would keep it away from the thermal throttling issues its predecessor brought to the table with it.

The first set of devices based on Qualcomm chipset may just get launched towards the end of this year or early next year.

Except the result doesn’t make much sense, sure it might be an eraly sample but ST->MT scaling is :

Clearly something’s wrong with the result or Kyro cores are going to be a big flop unless something changes majorly!
