Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 processor still on track for H2 2017 release

One thing that we do know for sure is that the Snapdragon 835 is the result of the collaboration between Samsung and Qualcomm. The chipset is made using the South Korean's 10nm FinFET process and it should be commercially available starting Q1 2017.
One of the first smartphones to pack the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor could be Samsung's Galaxy S8, though the information hasn't been confirmed yet.
Despite the fact that many of the rumors concerning Qualcomm's next-generation processor mention the Snapdragon 830, not the 835 model, the former hasn't been confirmed yet.
However, a new rumor coming straight out from China claims the Snapdragon 830 processor is still planned for release in the second half of 2017.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 is rumored to features either six or eight Kryo 200 cores and it will be manufactured using the same 10nm FinFTE process. Also, the chipset will embed the Adreno 519 graphics processing unit and it will feature Cat.12 baseband support.

What will increasing the amount of cores accomplish besides more power drain?

Short optimistic answer: Everything... Super pessimistic answer: Nothing at all.... #vagueisthenewblack

Not only, the set up for SD808/810 used an old ARM interconnect between the clusters, making it drawing more power than it should, in particular in the memory part. So vincelongman is partially right.

There was several reasons But in the end, its all on Qualcomm They found problems in testing, made the multiple revisions, but falied to fully fix the problems And still decided to release the v2.0 and v2.1 revisions of the 810 We dont blame Foxcom for Apple's decisons in the iPhone Or HTC for Googles decisons in the Pixel Or TSMC for Apple's/Nvidia's decisons in their SoCs Nvidia's Tegra X1 didn't have overheating issues in the Pixel C Despite also having A57s, a far more powerful GPU and also being built on TSMC's 20HPm process

More cores save power, not drain it. Clocking a processor to twice the frequency will increase the power consumption to upto 8 times or more. Meanwhile, doubling the cores will only consume twice the power. There is a reason multi-core processors exist.

Shouldnt the 830 be released before the 835??how will the 835 be available on the 1st half and the 830 until the second half of 2017?

That's exactly my thought. Like there is something really wrong here. Normally they release the 8x0 version followed by 8x5( snapdragon 805) or 8x1 like the snapdragon 821. This time it is so confusing and stupid imo
