Qualcomm to manufacture Snapdragon 1000 SoC for Windows 10 laptops?

Qualcomm to manufacture Snapdragon 1000 SoC for Windows 10 laptops?

The new Snapdragon silicon is reportedly much bigger than previous chips from the company. The SDM1000 chipset is expected to compete against Intel's Y and U processor series. This alleged chipset is said to be created to function on more powerful Windows notebooks and 2-in-1 devices.

There are serious rumors in the market with Snapdragon 1000 giving the devices a boost in their performance.

That's almost three times the power draw of Intel's Y-series processors and just 3W behind the chipmaker's U-series chips. According to information from import databases, the developer platform has up to 16 GB of LPDDR4X RAM on board and has two 128 GB memory modules connected via UFS 2.1.

The Snapdragon 1000 will be based on ARM Cortex-A76 cores and use TSMC's 7nm fabrication processes.

Most Qualcomm's line up of processors don't offer lightning speed performance for laptops, they do offer always-on connectivity (over LTE/4G) and very impressive battery life, for example like 20 hours, features that appeal to anyone working on the move.

It would make the device suitable for a wider range of computing devices, with motherboard manufacturers encouraged to offer Snapdragon 1000-socketed motherboards for PC and gadget makers to make their own computers from, such as low-power desktops and NUC-style compact computers. It is evident that Qualcomm seems to be eager to enter the ARM line-up for Windows use.

The SDM1000, as it is internally named, is thought to release as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 1000, possibly in 2019.

WinFuture, which reported on the existence of a Snapdragon 1000 chipset, has followed up with the revelation of a more impressive thermal design power of 12 watts instead of 6.5 watts. It is clear that the Snapdragon 1000 or a similar chip will be seen in a future Intel NUC.
