First benchmark results for the 64-bit Snapdragon 615-packing HTC Desire 820 are here

After a period of teasers from both HTC and Qualcomm, the two's efforts finally materialized just minutes ago at IFA 2014. The just announced HTC 820 is a reason for both parties to be proud -- HTC has the world's first 64-bit Android handset, and Qualcomm is the one supplying the Snapdragon 615 chip in question.
Obviously, quite a few people are curious to find out exactly what kind of performance can be expected from the new silicon, and, preferably, on an actual, real device and not a test one. So we wasted no time and ran two important benchmarks on one of the Desire 820 units in the demo area -- GFXBench and Vellamo Metal. Judging by those, the Snapdragon 615 is very capable, and brings performance improvements over now discontinued Snapdragon 600.
See for yourself.
Keep in mind that the Desire 820 we tested was a demo unit. Performance may differ from that of a retail unit.

It saddens me to see only 32-bit benchmark results of a 64-bit chip. On the other hand, it makes perfectly sense since Android's eco system will be stuck on 32-bit computing for a very long time regardless of the chip's bitness.

First of all, the article mentioned that "Keep in mind that the Desire 820 we tested was a demo unit. Performance may differ from that of a retail unit.". Second, 64-bit will only show it's amazing results in Android L. This phone is currently running Android 4.4 Kitkat. Lastly, you're just another Apple troll like Mxyzptlktlkspaksiskaksl and Wendy Fake Boob Boy Garett.

joke lee back again? you seem to get an unbearable itch in the wrong places on android articles. as for the iphone 6.. an extra row of icons for the 4.7 incher & 2 extra rows for the 5.5 incher. Oh.. & did i mention limited widget functionality & support for 3rd party keyboards? And the resolution almost equal to full HD? The next best thing since sliced bread. I don't mean to offend any apple fans & i respect their choice. But this response is to this nauseating troll. Mods.. wake up.. show some spine & this troll..

Dont forget the M7 is a 1080p device, while the desire is 720P. 2x the more resolution

It's a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong awaited true mid-ranger SoC as the Snapdragon 400 somewhat limited what you can get out of a phone that doesn't bear flagship specs. This should be the new standard for any phone bearing a 720p screen, the Adreno 405 GPU seems up for the task although I'm interested in more CPU benchmarks.

The A53 is supposed to be a bit faster than A9 but i have no clue why you tested the GPU and then in Vellamo , a Qualcomm benchmark that they obviously optimize for. The GPU is not interesting , the new core is very so run some CPU specific benchmarks and avoid Vellamo.

(offscreen of course) mali-t624 is as powerful as an adreno 320 on a s600. adreno 405 is faster than that and sometime this will be a typical midrange performance. way to go !! but what the f* with the names? adreno 405 is worse than 330 and yet the number is bigger.
