We already wrote that some manufacturers, including HP, Lenovo and Asus, are preparing to release laptops with the Snapdrgon 845 chip, which has higher clock speeds, and Windows 10 on board. According to rumors, the new platform Qualcomm will be called Snapdragon 850 , but yesterday there was information that the new chip will be labeled Snapdragon 1000 and intended exclusively for mobile computers with Windows 10.
No specifications Snapdragon 1000 at the present time is not disclosed, but it is obvious that Qualcomm intends to compete with Intel Core chips in laptops. According to unconfirmed information, the Snapdragon 1000 thermal package will be 6.5W against less than 5W from the current flagship Snapdragon 845, which indicates an increase in the number of cores or a significant increase in their clock frequencies.
The source also claims that the first notebook with the new platform will be Asus Primus, which has been working with Qualcomm since the beginning of this year. It is expected that the mass market laptops equipped with Snapdragon 1000, will fall in late 2018 or early 2019.
