Qualcomm Snapdragon 1000 rumored to be specifically built for PCs

Qualcomm Snapdragon 850

According to a report by German site WinFuture, the company's readying a chipset called the SDM1000 - or Snapdragon 1000 series - for use in larger computing systems, like laptops and ultrabooks.

Intel is reportedly developing new Y- and U-series Core chips with power and performance characteristics created to compete with the Snapdragon 1000.

When it comes to powering such devices, Intel's Y and U-series Core I processors have held sway, balancing performance with power-sipping credentials. Hence, users may have the power to replace their old Snapdragon processor with the newest one on their Windows 10 PC. Both processors are widely used in tablets and ultrabooks, with 4.5W and 15W power envelope. But in the CPU department, Qualcomm can't beat Intel right now in brute performance, but what about Snapdragon 1000?

Maximum memory configurations tested with the Snapdragon 1000, still in development, include 16GB of LPDDR4X RAM and two 128GB UFS 2.1 disks. It supports the latest Wi-Fi, Gigabit LTE, and believed to have a new power management controller.

Some of the separated children were seen using the blankets on government-distributed video of their holding conditions. Those seeking asylum must be granted a hearing. " Most children come without parents", Trump wrote on Twitter .

According to the job posting, it is clearly evident that Qualcomm is working on Snapdragon 850 and Snapdragon 100- more powerful variants of Snapdragon 835. The Snapdragon 1000 chip is being constructed from the start with the aim to function for laptop devices rather than the smartphones. It is evident that Qualcomm seems to be eager to enter the ARM line-up for Windows use. At the moment the details of the new chip have only been leaked, so we will need Qualcomm to confirm anything for certain.

The chip is expected to be built on TSMC's 7nm manufacturing process.

How much the Snapdragon's 1000 boosted specs are going to compromise those advantages remains to be seen - we still don't know any of the key specs of the chip, even if it's now looking more likely to be on the way.
