Qualcomm Snapdragon 1000 chip to Battle Intel in the ultrabook market
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 1000 is still in the making, but according to what we have heard about the upcoming chip, it will give Intel’s Core a run for its money. The chipset will only be used for ARM-powered Windows 10 laptops. To show how keen the company is to take on the ultrabook market, Qualcomm will be employing more people to help make the Snapdragon 1000 a reality.
Just like the Snapdragon 850 chip which was made for Windows 10 laptops as well. The company will use the larger physical size of laptops to push their TDP higher. We all know the Snapdragon 845 on flagships uses about 5W, while the Qualcomm Snapdragon 1000 will use about 6.5W. Although when you add up the GPU, the final number will, of course, be higher.
For instance, the Pentium 4410Y with dual-core is rated at 6W and clocks at 1.5 GHz, this also includes the Intel GPU. As you can see, various Core m and Y-series chips at similar TDPs are used in ultrabooks. Furthermore, the Snapdragon 1000 chip will start popping up on laptops before the end of the year or early 2019 tops. According to sources, the ASUS Primus ultrabook will house the Qualcomm Snapdragon 1000 and will debut this autumn. We can’t confirm this yet though.
