[H]ardOCP: Qualcomm Snapdragon 1000 Rumored to Be Specifically Built for PCs


Snapdragon 1000 is the purported name of Qualcomm's next-gen Snapdragon flagship chip, and should have a radical TDP, performance, and feature set that will blow other SoCs out of the water.

Qualcomm is expected to continue their push into the PC market with the Snapdragon 1000. The SDM1000 would compete against Intel's Y and U processor series.

The Qualcomm SDM1000 should be used in more simple Windows 10 devices, maybe even somple desktop PCs. Though the Snapdragon 1000 might be a smaller chipset compared to the Intel counterpart.

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 a report from WinFuture, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 1000 will have 12 TDP (thermal design process), which is nearly double as of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC (flagship smartphone chipset from Qualcomm).

IOS 12 public beta is now available
During the beta period, releases are seeded rather quickly at first, and then begin to taper off toward the alpha release date. Do note you may not want to install betas on your day-to-day devices, as there are still some bugs related to beta software.

While Sony did nothing, Nintendo and Microsoft just embraced cross-play

They also agreed to disburse 15 billion euros ($17.5 billion) to ease Greece's exit from the rescue programme. For the last four years, the money has stayed in Germany.

Qualcomm has reportedly developed a test platform based on the Snapdragon 1000 with up to 16GB of LPDDR4X RAM and two 128GB memory modules connected through UFS 2.1.

Microsoft has been working with Qualcomm to produce ARM chips for Windows 10 PCs.

Qualcomm will also reportedly look at the performance of a U-Series Skylake Intel processor as the benchmark. It's expected to use ARM's next-generation Cortex-A76 architecture, whose overall speed boost - about 35 percent, according to ARM - could be key to challenging Intel. Whether or not these purpose-built chips will be able to give Intel a run for their money remains to be seen.

Snapdragon 1000 has a power rating of just 6.5W. But then, it appears that the speculations are continuously pouring as recent rumors suggest that the upcoming foldable phone will be armed with Qualcomm Snapdragon 1000.
