Snapdragon 1000 details leak: Qualcomm set to pass Atom, Celeron chips?

Qualcomm Snapdragon 1000 rumored to be specifically built for PCs

Qualcomm Snapdragon 1000 rumored to be specifically built for PCs

While the first Windows 10 on ARM laptops are powered by the Snapdragon 835 SoC, Qualcomm recently announced the Snapdragon 850 mobile compute platform specially intended for Windows 10 base laptops. This SoC is also expected to go ahead with the upcoming Intel's Y- and U- series Core processors.

The Qualcomm SDM1000 should be used in more simple Windows 10 devices, maybe even somple desktop PCs.

In a test configuration seen by the source the Snapdragon 1000 was a socketed processor. By comparison, Intel's latest U series chips top out at 15 watts of power. A new report suggests that after this 850 SoC the follow-up chipset would be the new Snapdragon 1000 SoC.

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra's romance is Instagram official
Priyanka recently accompanied the American singer to his cousin's wedding in New Jeresy and was seen having a great time there. When it comes to Priyanka Chopra's street style, the fashionista always has something interesting up her sleeve.

Qualcomm's test platform is also said to have 16GB of LPDDR4X RAM and two 128GB UFS flash drives. Moreover, with a new power management controller, Snapdragon 1000 won't be as power-hungry as Intel Sky Lake processors.

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. The Snapdragon 1000 chip is being constructed from the start with the aim to function for laptop devices rather than the smartphones. In case you don't know Qualcomm and Microsoft are working together for a long now for the always-on PC project. It will deliver exceptional performance and will easily compete against the likes of Intel. The Snapdragon 1000 will have a more powerful 12W package along with the original 6.5W TDP version. At the moment the details of the new chip have only been leaked, so we will need Qualcomm to confirm anything for certain.
