SAMSUNG should seriously consider this chip in their upcoming Note 3

They will not. Exynos 5 Octa is getting LTE this year, and they'll be ready with a higher clocked Exynos 5 Octa (than the one in S4) for Note 3.

The Exynos 5 Octa processor clocked at 2.4ghz will be even better in my mind. The Galaxy Note 3 must arrive with Samsung's own processor but I wouldn't object to the Snapdragon 800 if I can see performance proof.

Hey, the Octa trumps Krait 300 even with 300mhz lower clock speed.
So if Note 3 ups that clock to 2Ghz, it could be on par even with 2.3Ghz Krait 400.
And we're yet to see about snapdragon 800' power consumption.

I'm also holding back for the Note 3, but not for the snapdragon 800.
Octa at 2Ghz is just fine

I think Tegra 4 beats it even at 1.9 Ghz (1.8 for the other cores)...so yeah.

I don't understand why they're hating on you, Rich. I completely agree. Since the Exynos 5 clocked at 1.6Ghz performs better than the 600 at 1.9Ghz, I have to imagine that the 800 would not be able to outperform a higher clocked version. Considering that, I would also prefer the Exynos, although I wouldn't mind the 800 either. They'll both be able to handle anything thrown at them for years to come.

It could potentially, but let's not forget that the Exynos Octa at 1.6 Ghz isn't scoring THAT much more in benchmarks than the S600 at 1.9. I'm assuming the Krait 400 is gonna be significantly better than the Krait 300 in the S600, and also clocked at 2.3 Ghz. I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss the S800. We don't know how the new Krait cores perform yet.

I didn't dismiss anything. I said I think the Exynos will outperform the 800. I don't think it will be by much. In any event, you can't go wrong with either. There will be no discernable difference in real world usage.

Hell yeah, that's EXACTLY what I am thinking. A Note III with the BEAST Snapdragon 800 with the Adreno 330 would be just EPIC!

The next coming phone that support 4K HD video capture and playback at 30fps will be mine. So I am still wishing that the note 3 will support this 4k feature or I will be moving forward to the one that do.
please do so samy in the note 3.

it's just amazing. 600 version seems snappiest ever, but 800 blows it away.

The performance is surely enough for most people... how about the energy efficiency? How much % gain?

Supports up to 55MP. Sounds like something designed for a Lumia EOS. More like, i think Nokia is the only one who will make good use of this support. But i expect to see this Snapdragon 800 in the Note 3 as well.

This is exactly why I am more than happy with my Galaxy Note 2 today. Buying a device towards the end of the year will be far better than anything that comes out January thru June.

As a Note 2 owner I agree as well. Samsung will have plenty of time to include Key Lime Pie and this beast of a processor. Plus I don't have an upgrade till late August so I'm forced to wait/watch anyway. If the S4 does not do better than HTC or even the S3 I expect Samsung will make up for it in the Note 3.

And then after the begining of the year every brand introduces new models, its like a vicious cycle, but still the Note 2 is an excellent smartphone! Enjoy it mate! :)

Agreed! I have no intent on upgrading from the Note II until the Note IV if not Note V comes out. The reason behind me waiting is because the Note II is plenty fast with virtually no hiccups for everyday use. Nowadays, high end phones are so impressive that benchmarks are no longer important for those concerned with everyday usage performance. I'm so impressed with the Note II that I'm not even looking at the Note III because the improvements are going to be trivial at best over the Note II.

Yes, it probably will be in the next nexus or moto X.

Nokia this is the chip you should use in the Lumia EOS!!!!!!...Can you imagine a 41 mpx sensor with 4K video recording!!!! sweet.

Better sell these out before intel gets a high end phone out and makes snapdragon look low end.
