Qualcomm starts testing the Snapdragon 810 chipset
Qualcomm announced its 64-bit Snapdragon 810 chipset back in April and thanks to a listing in the AnTuTu benchmark database, we can see it is currently undergoing testing.
The platform has been placed into a prototype device with a 6.2" 2560x1600 pixel resolution screen and 4GB of RAM. Interestingly, the frequency of the CPU is detected in the 200-940MHz range. At its maximum, it can operate at 2GHz.
Sadly, there's no information on how much performance the Snapdragon 810 chipset gives out. We hope the benchmark results gets posted eventually.
The Snapdragon 810 features four Cortex-A57 and four Cortex-A53 processor cores which provide 25-55% increase in performance over the Snapdragon 805 and draws 20% less power. In terms of GPU, the Snapdragon 810 has a brand new Adreno 430, which is advertised as 30% faster than the Adreno 420.
There have been rumors that the Nexus 6 could feature the 64-bit Snapdragon 810 chipset but nothing confirming this information has popped up.
It'll be interesting to see how the Snapdragon 810 will stack up against the Nvidia Tegra K1 (Denver), but we'll have to wait until this fall to find out.

It is a matter of design choice.An apple core would have more(~2x) logic inside it than say a Krait core. Eventually both the CPUs would command more or less a similar real estate. It is all about which corner you are leaning towards in the design tr...

Basically yes and that does not really change what I said. Exynos whether it was on board or not was still at an overall advantage at that point.
