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...

Shouldn't they think more about improving the single core performance? I mean look at AMD. Intel with 4 cores is still better because the softwares are made that way. I think these companies along with Google should think more about optimizing the software and make the most of single cores so less cores will be needed to run everything smoothly. Less core=less power drain=more battery life

"Please please Samsung, don't do this to us, without you, we Apple are nothing" please, we will pay you double the revenue.: "Samsung, okay"

It's Ok. The Note 4 is going to be a pretty good device... I want this chip in my next Lumia, but I can wait for it to be in the device after my next one..

2015 and the Snapdragon 810 are going to rock the tech front with this huge generational leap. Galaxy S6 here I come!

I guess The 810 is 20 nm? Was expecting 14nm by the first half of 2015

All of this arguing is stupid... Just get the device that you like.. Screw everything else. For me, I personally would love to have this new chip in my next Lumia device..

I hope Microsoft will make Windows Phone 64-bit compatible on time, i guess that that will be when Windows Treshold will be released for Phone/Tablet and Desktop....

So we now hear the 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810 has just been put into testing and still nowhere near market-ready, and won't be until 2015. At the same time we hear/read a Note 4 version will come with a 64-bit Exynos 5433 chipset after two weeks. Both chipsets are based on the same ARM v8 SoC with Cortex-A57 and Cortex-A53 cores. All that means that Samsung must have achieved a clear lead and massive leap over Qualcomm on the 64-bit front ... if the Note 4 processors-related rumours proved correct on 3rd September.

No wonder Qualcomm is offering Samsung a discount on the Snapdragon 805 for the Note 4
