Snapdragon 820 V3 scores high on benchmark test
The Snapdragon 820 is apparently undergoing more testing and revisions by Qualcomm. Earlier this month, a Qualcomm executive said that 30 handsets that will use the new chipset, are being planned. Coming off the Snapdragon 810 overheating debacle, everyone will be looking intently at the chip, especially since they feature Qualcomm's own Kryo cores.

Back in July, the Snapdragon 820 was benchmarked by GeekBench which produced a single-core score of 714, and a multi-core score of 1942. Those aren't exactly high-end results. But the four Kryo cores were running at less than half the maximum 3GHz clock speed (1.46 GHz, to be exact). Another test of the Snapdragon 820 showed improvement, with a single-core tally of 1732, and a multi-core score of 4970.

That brings us to the test of the third version of the Snapdragon chip, which was recently conducted. This time, the chipset scored 2032 in single-core, and 5910 in multi-core. This beat out the Exynos 7420 powerhouse and the multi-core score of the Apple A9.

The Snapdragon 820 is just one of many new high-end chips that will be driving top-shelf handsets over the next year. One competitor is Huawei's Kirin 950 SoC. Last month, that chip scored 6096 for its multi-core test. There is also the deca-core CPU offered as part of MediaTek's Helio X20 chipset.

The Xiaomi Mi 5 has been rumored to be the first handset to be powered by the Snapdragon 820. The chip is expected to start shipping to manufacturers in December, with the first handsets to be powered by the SoC to start rolling out next March.

Nice. They can't afford to screw up this year too.

The chip makers should concentrate more on power efficiency .
So, we can have 3-4 days of battery life instead of just having more Powerful CPU ....
A midrange phone is powerful phone enough to run most functions
I am really looking for phones with great and long battery life over the the ones with unnecessary powerful CPU.

Get windows phone, battery life is always better since the system run the same chips that android use but better.....look at htc one m8 for android and windows, same exact phone but different operating system and the windows version had a way longer battery life n other improvements

Why are bench marks still important? They have nothing to do with real life usage. BS articles.

Power efficiency, heat dissipation and lag-free performance is what I am interested in.

820 won't overheat badly. 810 overheat terribly because big.LITTLE architecture. Constant switching of voltages from big and little cores too often was the reason. This guy did a YouTube video explaining it exactly and talked about how it affected battery drain, like why 2014 flagships last longer than their successor's using the 810.

I don't think if Kirin and mediatek are even comparable since their gpu sucks.

The Kirin 950 has a GPU worth mentioning though, and could be a real contender.

It couldn't. It has the same Mali-T880 MP4 GPU as Mediatek X20. Snapdragon 800 level.

you mean that Adreno 330 = Mali T880 mp4,Go drunk,You are home

Exynos 8890 is still unreachable.

I can break 6500 with my note 5 in geekbench

Did you overclock it. As it's simply impossible to do at 2.1 GHz.

It is simply possible...You can't oc latest big.LITTLEs,You can spend years searching in xda and you won't even get N4 Exynos OC,That is still possible,With the right kenrel and maintaining that frequency by using Performance cpu scheduler that can sustain performance with...CPU damage,This only shows how powerful big.LITTLE is..Nothing more nothing less

You do know there are unlocked bootloder note 5s right? The kernel im using allows overclocking and underclocking and full voltage control.go spend 5 min in the note 5 xda development thread and look at all the kernels to oc

Yes sky kernel unlocks up to 2 4Ghz i also got 450mb/read performance on nand.

Currently world record holder in androbench lol

I suspected that. Can you suggest a kernel for S6. I'm looking for undervolting as the performance is more than enough for me. I'm looking for more control and better battery life.

Yes with sky kernel

I care more about the magic DSP cutting down power consumption and the ISP allowing better PDAF. Comparing sheer CPU performance at the smartphone level in the real world seems to be mostly a d*ck measuring contest between fandroids (moar corrrrrz) and iFans (bigga corrrrrz).

I just don't even care anymore. Say what you want. This entire year of phones is completely disappointing in every way. It's all been pretty predictable.

If the note 5 would have had atleast a step up in cpu (7422) It would have made me a tad happier.
If the iPhone 6s would have had OIS. I wouldn't say this. But it doesn't and it's all that I wanted. I'm just sad....

I believe that temheybwikk use a 14nm process so no more over heating...

SD620 surely looks awesome!
