Leaks reveal more details of the Snapdragon 1000 for laptops

Hence, users may have the power to replace their old Snapdragon processor with the newest one on their Windows 10 PC. Though the Snapdragon 1000 might be a smaller chipset compared to the Intel counterpart.

It is also essential to note that the TDP in case of the SDM1000 is approximately 12 W, thereby placing it among the ranks of Intel's U and Y series chipsets characterized with ultra-low power. New reports suggest that a suped-up Snapdragon 1000 CPU is in the works, which could provide enough speed to compete with systems running Intel's mainstream processors. Qualcomm's test platform supposedly has 16GB LPDDR4X RAM with two 128GB flash drives for storage. It will support Gigabit WLAN, a new socketed chip design, and new power management techniques.

Qualcomm has been working with Microsoft on Always Connected PCs that are powered by its Snapdragon chips, however, they have largely been repurposed iterations of its mobile chips.

It's highly unlikely that we'll see the Snapdragon 1000 in Microsoft's rumored Andromeda folding device or a HoloLens 2, but the job description lends credence to the idea that the chip is being targeted for desktop systems. Would you buy an ARM Windows 10 machine? But some of these processors are somewhat lacklustre, which is why the Snapdragon 1000 apparently has a thermal design power of 12W.


However, the concerns for the matching of SDM1000 with Intel CPUs regarding bandwidth, raw performance and flexibility are profound despite the near similarities in TDP.

The chipset will use ARM's Cortex-A76 architecture and build using a 7nm manufacturing process.

If the latest rumours are to be believed, Snapdragon 1000 will be featured in upcoming AR and VR devices and even desktops.
