Came across this interesting discussion about thermal efficiency of mobile CPUs. What’s the right way to measure how efficient a processor is dissipating heat? An interesting yet unscientific way devised by Qualcomm engineers is to place butter stick on a cell phone and see how long it takes for the butter to melt.
Perhaps thermal imaging is a better way to evaluate thermal properties on the Snapdragon processor.
Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 runs significantly cooler than other mobile CPUs.
