Some like it hot: which is the hottest SoC?


Read every single article that talks about the Snapdragon 810 and – we challenge you! – find one where there isn’t at least one comment from someone complaining about the temperatures of Qualcomm’s latest SoC.

This is to underline that, in recent times, a lot of importance has been given to the degrees reached by the chips inside our phones and this comparison is proof of this.

If you too are a little obsessed with temperatures, you should take a look at the test results performed by Testbird, which he monitored for a year dozens and dozens of SoCs.

Unfortunately, there will be no gloating about the grades of Snapdragon 810 because, like the other latest chips, it is not included in the test: on the other hand, how many of you remembered that it Snapdragon 200 (Qualcomm MSM8225Q) warmed up that much, reaching 63.88 °? And what about the Exynos 4210, mounted on the historian Samsung Galaxy S2, which reached 50.71 °?

We therefore leave you with two summary tables: the first more generic, relating to the average and maximum temperatures of the manufacturers, the second much more in-depth, with data relating to all the numerous SoCs tested by Testbird.
