Everyone is eager to forget the Snapdragon 810 issues and move on to the 820. Early processor benchmarks didn't wipe out the competition, but maybe the new Adreno 530 GPU could impress. Qualcomm promised a 40% performance improvement on top of a 40% power reduction over the Adreno 420 used in the S810. Early GFXBench tests show the difference can be even bigger than expected.
