Sucks for MediaTek fans, this will only deter people who're doubtful of low tier Chinese chipset makers even further.
Perhaps it needs liquid nitrogen cooling...wth who needs a 10-core cpu anyway!!

10-core chipset and an outdated manufacturing process, what did you expect. Apple must be laughing and cringing right now.
I'm not surprised that a chip name "Helio" (greek for 'sun') suffer from overheating issues.
9ja-Mike, 02 Feb 2016Why Am Not SuprisedDon't Be Because "Helio" Means "Sun" In "Greek"
Harmonica, 02 Feb 2016Does it burn the homes like exynos ?All Exynos (except the 7000 and 8000 series) are based on Original ARM architectures.. so does Mediatek (except helio x10 and x20)..

It's Qualcomm that had 3rd class perf... moreDon't be, they get lots of support from Qualcomm itself which allows for many 3rd-party ROMs to not only exist but actually be stable and usable (looking in disapproval at Exynos)...
Anyone who buys a Mediatek outside of the Android One programs knows they are walking into a dead-end of sucky support and frankenbuild ROMs with the same flawed blobs Mediatek never bothers to publicly release let alone update.
MarcoK, 02 Feb 2016No 14/16nm + A57/A72 cores -> overheating... Well, the sd810 in the nexus at least works ju... moreIt is, to be sure, but so much as you might think.
I was trying to be kind to the 6P but the actual statement made in the Anandtech review is that it's sustainable performance is actually worse than the Exynos 7420 and the 801/805 based devices, at least in terms of cpu processes.
It's also worth noting that due to the 2k screen resolution, the 6P will never compete with the likes of the M9, Z5/Z5C, etc in terms of gaming performance.
As the 801 is little more than a higher clocked 800, this means the 6P's implementation of the 810 might not so far ahead of other devices based on it. They do also say however that it is the best they have tested to that point.
As before, most probably phone manufacturers are getting discount from qualcomm or at profits loss to just not use mediatek chipset. Qualcomm company is so evil. They just want make monopoly in chipset industry.

And nexus 6p also has throttling issues while playi... moreI mentioned the nexus as a kind of exception because the nexus has throttling but not necessarily more than the galaxy s6, this one has throttling as well. But basically most sd810 phones have those problems even without gaming. The 6p is at least good with most of your tasks exept excessive gaming.
