Last Friday, information began to circulate that pointed to Qualcomm problems with the Snapdragon 810, the 64-bit processor that will presumably carry most of the high-end terminals of 2015. These problems could cause a delay in the development of the chip and therefore, it could also delay the launch of these devices. On this day, Qualcomm It has come out of these rumors to deny them, and confirm that everything continues as planned and the first devices with Snapdragon 810 will come out in the first half of next year.
The truth is that the report, which ran like wildfire on December 4, did not surprise anyone because of the precedents we have experienced this year, with a Snapdragon 805 which has been kept waiting to the point that Samsung had to restrict the launch of the improved version of the Galaxy S5 to Korea at first.
As they explained, the new Qualcomm SoC, which will work at speeds of 1.96 GHz and will have a 64-bit architecture, would not arrive in time for the first quarter due to various technical problems. One of them would affect the CPU, which exceeded ideal temperatures, reaching extreme points. The second was focused on the GPU, specifically with the drivers. The memory management it would also suffer from more errors than is permissible.
