  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 1000 rumored to be specifically built for PCs

Specifications of the latest Qualcomm System-on-Chip (SoC) identified as SDM1000 but believed to be eventually named as Snapdragon 1000, are beginning to surface. The SD1000 SoC will have a 12W TDP and be competitive with Intel's Y-Series (4.5W) and U-Series (15W) processors. This alleged chipset is said to be created to function on more powerful Windows notebooks and 2-in-1 devices. It's now reportedly crafting a new chip called the Snapdragon 1000 that's purpose-built for upcoming desktops and laptops.

The report also informed about the Snapdragon 1000 developer platform having two 128 GB UFS 2.1-rated memory modules and 16GB of LPDDR4X RAM on board. It also comes with gigabit LTE and Wi-Fi 802.11ad, along with a new power management controller.

The word on the street is that while Qualcomm's Snapdragon 850 processor may be intended for PCs, but a higher-clocked version of the same processor you'd find in your phone.

The first generation "Snapdragon PCs", previously referred to by other terms such as "Cellular PCs" or "always connected PCs", are powered by the 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. It is evident that Qualcomm seems to be eager to enter the ARM line-up for Windows use. The upcoming Snapdragon 1000 will use the all fresh ARM's Cortex A76 architecture based cores.

Qualcomm will also reportedly look at the performance of a U-Series Skylake Intel processor as the benchmark.

KitGuru Says: Qualcomm is getting serious about Windows 10 on ARM, it will be interesting to see what the Snapdragon 1000 brings to the market. As such, the Snapdragon 1000 should be able to draw upon enough power to give it a boost in performance that's comparable to the more prominent low-end laptop chips.
