    After the Snapdragon 820 version of this devkit was announced almost a year ago, it failed to actually turn up in any products (despite Qualcomm assuring at the time that products were coming).

    Quality. Guess they're having a few problems tempting devs across - although the promise of foveated rendering via eye-tracking may help this time around, 'cos the original didn't have that and without clever tricks like that you're going to struggle to get anything properly complex rendering on a smartphone chip at a decent quality.
