As per certain rumors that are circulating in the air, the CPU on board the Snapdragon 810 chipset (the clock speeds of which got revealed earlier today) is experiencing overheating problems at certain voltage levels, which leads to under-performance.

But that's not the only problem that Qualcomm's 64-bit capable beast is reportedly faced against. Apart from the CPU, the Adreno 430 GPU unit is also said to be problematic due to an error in the drivers.

This can potentially lead to a delay in the production of some of 2015's hottest and much-expected devices that will make use of the Snapdragon 810 – the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the LG G4, among others.
