Qualcomm to manufacture Snapdragon 1000 SoC for Windows 10 laptops?

Qualcomm to manufacture Snapdragon 1000 SoC for Windows 10 laptops? Qualcomm to manufacture Snapdragon 1000 SoC for Windows 10 laptops?

A new report suggests that the company is now developing a new chip called the Snapdragon 1000 which will enable it to better compete against Intel in the PC market.

This is all rumor mill information at the moment, but I expect some concrete information on Snapdragon 1000 later this year as we get closer to CES 2019.

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.

Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel smiled when he said Denmark is lucky that Christian Eriksen is Danish. We have to keep a close eye on him and try and stop the supply going into him.

The most important information that Quandt uncovered came from the LinkedIn profile of a Microsoft Windows Multimedia Project Engineer, which mentioned "test operations on Qualcomm Snapdragon premium tier chipset SDM845 and SDM1000 for desktop, Andromeda and HoloLens AR/VR/mixed reality products". The Snapdragon 1000's CPU will draw a total of 6.5 watts, whereas the whole SoC will draw 12W. The Y-series chips are less powerful and found in Intel's thinner systems, while the U-series processors are used in more-average, everyday laptops.

WinFuture references a newly-developed power management chip to handle the increased needs of this chip and how it consumes energy, so that may be mitigated. Separately, multiple code submissions suggest of an upcoming 2-in-1 Chromebook running on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC. Even though it is a large-sized chipset, it is still smaller than 15-watt Intel chips, claims the report. Hence, users may have the power to replace their old Snapdragon processor with the newest one on their Windows 10 PC. However, rumors surrounding the SD1000 suggest the USA -based chip maker could be venturing a new territory of manufacturing swappable processors.
