Snapdragon 820 SoC rumored to have overheating issues just like the Snapdragon 810 chipset
Once talk about the overheating Snapdragon 810 SoC started to go viral, the reports were met by comments from some phone buyers that they were going to wait until the release of the Snapdragon 820 before buying their next handset. If a tweet from tipster Ricciolo is legit, you might want to wait for the appearance of the Snapdragon 830 before spending your hard earned money on a new phone.

The tweet disseminated by Ricciolo today states that the Snapdragon 810 chipset and its successor (the Snapdragon 820) are "not so different in terms of HEAT issues." The tipster, who refers to himself as a Technology Secret Agent, suggests that phone buyers hold out for the launch of the Snapdragon 830. The latter won't be available until the third quarter of 2016.

According to Chinese analyst Pan Jiutang, Qualcomm will start shipping the Snapdragon 820 SoC in December of this year. The first phone to employ it, according to the analyst, will be the Xiaomi Mi 5 Plus.

The Snapdragon 820 features new 64-bit cores home grown by Qualcomm. These four Kyro cores have a maximum clock speed of 3GHz.

Ricciolo hasn't posted any evidence that backs up his comments, and there is no anecdotal evidence that suggests that the Snapdragon 820 overheats. For now, we recommend taking his comments with a grain of salt until there is some solid proof that what he says is true.

Tweet from self-proclaimed tech secret agent Riccolio says that the Snapdragon 820 SoC overheats like the Snapdragon 810 does

More Portable heaters on the way. Exynos to dominate and Other OEMs will have to rely on Qualcomm or switch to Media Tek.

clocked at 3ghz, quite plausible... clock it to 2.5ghz, problem solved... by the way, isn't it just a rumor to bring another havoc in qualcomm's folio?

Definitely a fake rumour. Heat is probably their primary focus right now. They're not going to fk up a second time.

Will NEVER buy smartphone wih CrapDragon it suppose to call Fire Dragon !

Stupidly increasing MHz ..pointless ..
Smartphone is NOT PC that you can upgrade and add water coolings.. for fcuk sake !!
Smartphone HAS limits due to its size for Christ sake .. when everybody will realise that !!

How do you know that at 2.5 ghz the problem will be solved if you never used the SoC?

More gHz with more cores=more heat

As if the 810 wasn't a lesson for Qualcomm... They take all this time to come out with another pancake device.

Inside a modern CPU are features to prevent damage through "overheating".
In the event of cooling failure, the CPU will throttle then shut down beyond a critical temperature threshold to avoid "damage".

No shi*t I don't think you understand tmost mos people don't want throttled chips

Then dont take the Exynos

its trottle like hell after like 20 min of gaming.
You wont notice it because no game currently even use half the GPU of newer flagship level chipset.

Only place you will see it is in benchmark.
Do same benchmark for an hours and compare result.

Yeah and the Snapdragon 810 throttles even more then the 7420 so yeah 7420 is better then the 810 and throttles less.

You meant to say "dont take the snapdragon 810" actually as it throttles more then the 7420

whether 7420 is better than SD 810 or whether it is not, I just want you to stop using "then" instead of "than".
Because I'm not a hater or whatever, I'm giving you a way to never make this mistake again.
In "compArison" there is no "E" so it's not "thEn" but "thAn" when you want to make a comparison.

810 throttles more but runs cooler after that. 810 can be throttled less and run as hot as the 7420.

You're here again and again you say bulls**t about the things you do not even know.

Games do note utilize the full GPU power? FALSE, dont trust this people. I have done a lot of tests so I can say that a lot of games use full GPU power. For some games this even isn't enough - the fps drops sometimes.

Don't listen to this idiot, he doesn't have a clue what hes talking about, he's a known liar.

I use gamebench which monitors performance in games and what he's saying is completely untrue.

There is no viable option from nvidia.
