Qualcomm Snapdragon 1000 rumors: 16GB RAM in a smartphone

Qualcomm Snapdragon 1000 rumored to be specifically built for PCs

Qualcomm has been pushing into the PC processor market over the past few months by teaming up with Microsoft on the Always Connected program.

A new report suggests that the expected SD 1000 SoC is most likely the powerful laptop chipset that the company has ever made.

The news comes from the Berlin-based WinFuture, which claims that the ARM chips will sport enough performance to be compared to Intel's stronger Y- and U-series x86 processors.

At Computex a couple of weeks ago, Qualcomm unveiled its next gen Snapdragon platform targeting "always-on" laptops. Both processors are widely used in tablets and ultrabooks, with 4.5W and 15W power envelope.

The new report also claims that the Snapdragon 1000 will be a socketed chipset. The report also states that the SD 1000 SoC would be having 16GB LPDDR4X RAM and two 128GB UFS flash drives.

Fabregas: Ronaldo's goals come from set-pieces, penalties or mistakes
Should Argentina fail to win the 2018 World Cup, Messi will have to wait until 2022 to have another shot on the evasive trophy. He also criticised Willy Caballero, who made a mistake for Croatia's opener.

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.

It appears that Qualcomm's looking to solve one of the biggest issues that plagued the first Windows laptops that ran on its chips: sluggish performance. This means, the Qualcomm chipset will be contending against the entry-level Intel chipsets like the U series, which powers the devices like the Apple MacBook.

The TDP which stands for Thermal Design Power of the Snapdragon 1000 is around 12 watts. Qualcomm Snapdragon 1000 is also expected to be built on TSMC's 7nm process, and use ARM's Cortex-A76 architecture.

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