Qualcomm to ship enhanced Snapdragon 820 for Samsung Galaxy S7 testing

powerful Adreno 530 GPU, and the 14nm FinFET manufacturing process, but will offer even lower power consumption and better thermal management, resulting in an overall performance increase of up to 10%, with the potential to reach much more in further tweaking.As a result, the latest Snapdragon 820 edition, as supplied to Samsung, would retain its four custom Kryo cores, the
Given that Snapdragon 820 can theoretically reach speeds of up to 3 GHz per core, this might present Samsung with quite the conundrum which chipset to use for the Galaxy S7. Whichever way it goes, one can be certain that both the eventual Exynos and Snapdragon versions of the upcoming flagship will rock the benchmarks as if there is no tomorrow.

Samsung has used both Qualcomm and Exynos processors in all past versions of the S line (except the S6), so this isn't really something new.

When they say heavily tweaked SD820, they mean throttled down as SD820 has the same heating potential as the SD810. I saw this article on PA sometime back and it was tipped off by some leakster

Phenom what you saying is full of s**t. SD820 architecture is completely different compared to the 810. If those leakster are the same who overexagerate the SD810 issue then your information are nothing but crap. SD 810 = 20 NM build , 4 low end stock arm core 4 high end stock arm core in big little architecture ( lots of voltage problem with this architecture wich cause lots of heat ) and adreno 430. SD 820 = 14 nm build finfet , 4 high end custom core and adreno 530. Why SD 810 heat? 20 nm build and crappy big little architecture using stock arm core.

While I agree with you on SD820 being a different architecture, I have to say the 810 heat issue hasn't been over exaggerated, Qualcomm have been saying there are no issues from the very beginning, but when tech sites investigate it turns out to be lies: Arstechnica said the 810 throttles so early and so severely that people who are using an 810 powered phone for just a minute could run into slow downs. http://arstechnica.com/gadgets
Android Authourity also confirms severe throttling http://www.androidauthority.co m/snapdragon-808-vs-810-overheating-test-605273/
and this also happens even with the newest rev2.1 http://www.androidauthority.co m/qualcomm-snapdragon-810-v2-617956/
If you believe 810 heat issue is an over exaggeration can you please provide links showing test results that backup or support your claim?

i dont give F*%K JUST STOP PRE LOADING BLOAT AND TOUCHWIZ, PLAIN VANILLA ANDROID WITH GALAXY APP STORE TO ADD WHAT WE WANT FROM THEM STOP FORCING US TO SLOW OUR PHONES WITH ALL YOUR APPS, ITS MINE I PAYED FOR IT SO F OFF

To overheat, or not to overheat..........

With Samsung's modifications I would go with not overheat.

Shocky dont leave half the important info out. Yes Samsung 14 nm finfet will help a lots. but removing crappy stock arm core and removing the big little architecture will make this a reality. So instead of having 8 core thats have voltage issues when used at the same time ( as they both use different voltage ) Qualcomm put 4 beastly core thats can do much more per clock and the best GPU around. This SOC will rock.

Sammy getting special treatment.

Samsung are in a much stronger position than most, they can fail back to their own SoC which I'm sure they will using in certain regions regardless. Add to that they actually sell a huge number of devices Qualcomm don't want to lose them

Optimization optimization and optimization... Did I mention optimization? You can have all the cores in the world clocked at 15 GHz but the if it's not optimized right it's going to be useless. The s6 suffers from this. I used my s6 to take pics of the Niagara Falls this past weekend and that thing lagged like hell and got very warm. I didn't want to take my note 5 yet due to my case not arriving from Amazon. Didn't want to take a chance on dropping it. I've taken pics with my note 5 and it doesn't have the same issues my s6 does. Go figure... They use the same chip set... Opti... You get the picture...

update the S6 to 5.1 and it pretty much fixed almost everything that was wrong in 5.0.

I be thinking you not got the new icon update for your s6 then as CPU as been sorted in that update, you also get lower scores in batchmarks due to the changes same why the note 5 and edge + as lower scores, it now does not even lag the 1st time you go in the apps screen when you 1st turn the phone on or change theme unlike before, there is no just no lag when you not installing themes or some other big software file

It's a interesting news. It was expected that will come with an upgraded version of the chipset because Exynos M1 is it quite a little more powerfull than S820. Exynos M1 in single task perform around 1950-2050 points when S820 is supposed to be around 1750-1800. So, than 10% improvments it is welcome because the chipsets must be balanced :D
