Just ahead of MWC Shanghai, more reports indicate that Qualcomm is working on a Windows 10 Snapdragon chipset named SDM1000.
Designed to compete with Intel’s Y- and U-Series, the SDM1000 will be an even powerful chipset than the Snapdragon
“The Snapdragon 1000 is reported to have a 6.5W power draw for the CPU itself, with a total power draw of 12W for the entire SoC. The Snapdragon 1000 test platform has 16GB of LPDDR4X RAM and two 128GB UFS flash drives. It also has 802.11ad gigabit Wi-Fi, gigabit LTE, and a new power management controller,” says ArsTechnica.
The Register also spotted a few job descriptions on Linkedin that mention the SDM1000, so we could hear a confirmation soon enough. Until then, Qualcomm’s chipsets that can be used in laptops and notebooks are limited to the Snapdragon 845 its successor, Snapdragon 850.
