    I wonder if these chips will run into the same sort of thing the PC market has started to hit, which is any performance gains start to be unnoticeable for a non-gamer. Bummer about battery life, that's what every user will care about.

    I should hope so. I would think any chip that has to care about battery life would have worse performance than one that has the luxury of a wall socket.

    That is quite a large leap.

    This is the chip that will be in the Note 3 in a few months, I just hope Samsung doesn't make it just a bigger version of the S4, I'm expecting a "phablet" that will blow away all phones but won't be for everyone with a 6 inch edge to edge screen.

    "For good measure, Anandtech also included benchmark comparisons pitting the Snapdragon 800 against entry level desktop graphics chips."

    That was worth it! It's interesting to see just how far these tiny chips have come and how close our mobile devices can equate to a desktop computer. Faster than a Nvidia GT 7800. That puts it in the Half-Life 2 generation of games. Which is a many years behind, but still fun times.
