Snapdragon 820 SoC rumored to have overheating issues just like the Snapdragon 810 chipset
posted by Alan F. / Jul 17, 2015, 2:03 PM
The tweet disseminated by Ricciolo today states that the Snapdragon 810 chipset and its successor (the Snapdragon 820) are "not so different in terms of HEAT issues." The tipster, who refers to himself as a Technology Secret Agent, suggests that phone buyers hold out for the launch of the Snapdragon 830. The latter won't be available until the third quarter of 2016.
According to Chinese analyst Pan Jiutang, Qualcomm will start shipping the Snapdragon 820 SoC in December of this year. The first phone to employ it, according to the analyst, will be the Xiaomi Mi 5 Plus.
The Snapdragon 820 features new 64-bit cores home grown by Qualcomm. These four Kyro cores have a maximum clock speed of 3GHz.
Ricciolo hasn't posted any evidence that backs up his comments, and there is no anecdotal evidence that suggests that the Snapdragon 820 overheats. For now, we recommend taking his comments with a grain of salt until there is some solid proof that what he says is true.

More Portable heaters on the way. Exynos to dominate and Other OEMs will have to rely on Qualcomm or switch to Media Tek.

clocked at 3ghz, quite plausible... clock it to 2.5ghz, problem solved... by the way, isn't it just a rumor to bring another havoc in qualcomm's folio?

Inside a modern CPU are features to prevent damage through "overheating". In the event of cooling failure, the CPU will throttle then shut down beyond a critical temperature threshold to avoid "damage".

Then dont take the Exynos its trottle like hell after like 20 min of gaming. You wont notice it because no game currently even use half the GPU of newer flagship level chipset. Only place you will see it is in benchmark. Do same benchmark for an hours and compare result.

You're here again and again you say bulls**t about the things you do not even know. Games do note utilize the full GPU power? FALSE, dont trust this people. I have done a lot of tests so I can say that a lot of games use full GPU power. For some games this even isn't enough - the fps drops sometimes.

If true, I guess I'll be purchasing Samsung phones going forward, assuming they are using Exynos chips.
