standard Qualcomm announces the Snapdragon 820, 64 bit with Adreno 530 GPU


With Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 being shunned by most OEM’s claiming that it caused severe overheating in devices, Qualcomm plan to bring them back with their latest chip; the Snapdragon 820. The newly announced 820 chip is a 64-bit with a custom KYRO CPU, paired with an Adreno 530 GPU.

Qualcomm claim the 820 has improved in every aspect, verse it’s predecessors and brings better performance and power consumption, paving the way for future “Immersive technologies”.

in the case of the Snapdragon 820, every major component of the system has been significantly improved in terms of performance and power consumption to help deliver the kinds of always-on, performance-demanding experiences that users want.

Although Qualcomm have always denied the claims that the 810 had overheating issues, hopefully they’ve rectified the issue in the new chip; which we’ll definitely see plenty of in 2016.
