Benchmark pass suggests that the 64-bit, octa-core Snapdragon 810 has been put into testing

You've probably always suspected as much, but manufacturing quality processors, especially ones small enough to simultaneously fit into a smartphone, and provide enough performance muscle, is darn hard. That's why the Snapdragon 810 -- Qualcomm's next 'flagship' chip -- is still nowhere near market-ready, and won't be until 2015, even though the company announced it months ago. Need proof? Well, the team behind the AnTuTu benchmark just had their first sighting of the new silicon.

The 64-bit, octa-core Snapdragon 810 touts an Adreno 430 GPU, and two sets of four Cortex-A57 and Cortex-A53 cores, respectively. All said, this new combo is expected to provide some serious performance benefits over the Snapdragon 805 -- up to 50% more speed, while also drawing considerably less power.

In case you were wondering, the SD810 was powering what we guess is a prototype device with a 6.2-inch, 1600 x 2560 pixel resolution display and 4GB of RAM (that the SD810 can address in their full). The device in question was running Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

2015 can get here sooner -- that's all we're going to say.

Still testing the 32-bit guest Android? 64-bit ready? LMAO.

What good is 64bit with a useless pathetic 1gb Ram, on your Ip5s?

Go study aarch32 and aarch64 ISA and register set before embarrassing yourself any further here with your BS.

64bit is the way to go. It is the future. Stop favouring a particular brand. Favour technology as whole. This article is about 64bit snapdragon 810 being tested, whether it be on android or any other OS it doesn't matter let technology advance. Fine you don't like android u might favour ios or WP but be thankful u got other choices once you've tired of one os or ur favourite platform fails. And android L is 64bit supported. And google obviously did a great job. Also their software engineers know coding and stuffs better than you. Please try to look from the view of technology rather spamming every android article. Don't waste ur time

Are you an idi*t or do you just pretend to be? The reason of different architecture x86 to x64 was to increase the maximum RAM limit from 4GB to 192GB (on current Windows) platform. Before that super computers had different CPUs with 4GB RAM limits in a honeycomb structure so as to increase the processing power. And iPhones never really utilized that 64-bit architecture you seem so proud of. The coding of iOS was such. Why do you think iOS runs exactly the same on iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S. So please don't embarrass your own self any further. The only thing you should be proud of regarding an iPhone is the software integration with the hardware and the extreme ease of use. Not 64-bit CPUs cause that was just a bragging right, nothing more.

No he is not wrong the jump to 64bit in case of arm has brought about four main advantages . 1) newer a8 instruction set. 2) higher number of out of order execution . 3) more ram. 4) double register space .

So just because they don't need more than 1 GB ram, they should stay at 32-bit architecture? What kind of logic is that? 64-bit instructions removes the gap between PC and Mobile computing. And this is great for developers. When mobile computing reaches the level of PC it will be easy for developers to make the applications same for all platforms. It is a leap forward. I'm not calling it a revolution or innovation. But it is good for them and they know what they are doing.

What good is your garbage Ip5s, when it has a 64bit Cpu with 1gb Ram, when the VM Heaptools requires upto 64mb of Ram to open any apps, when currently on the Ip5s has a bogus 12mb heap size. Lmfao.

Weren't we talking about CPU? All of a sudden you talk BS about Android specific Java crap. You honestly don't know what you are talking about.

no need for it without the ram to back it up jake boy apple pulled a android jumping the gun with 64bit for tiny speed boost, android is pulling a apple by waiting for optimization of tech, all i need android to do now is stop with the quad hd screens no need for it, on a cell phone.

Not so true, most iPhone apps are optimized for 64-bit, and the low-end specs makes the 5S a tiny bit faster than the Moto E, yet much slower than the Moto G, so 64-bit is useless.

Cool I guess but isit superior to the K1 or not? I'm just curious.

Without doubt it will be a lot faster CPU wise, and roughly on par GPU wise.. but it will have vastly superior connectivity and more advanced subroutine processing. Lastly but most importantly, it will have much lower TDP

And Jakelee was criticising the Big-little.... And know Snapdragon is using the same theroy as Samsung did on thier Exynos.

Too bad that Qualcomm will go vanilla next year, R.I.P Scorpion & Krait.

is it the ip5s a7 chip built by samsung
