Recent news made us believe that Qualcomm has plans for creating a new Snapdragon 1000 processor. Its performance is expected to equal Intel’s Y and U-series processors. Now, thanks to a job announcement that was posted on LinkedIn, we have the confirmation of this processor being tested for varied Windows 10 on ARM applications. This includes desktop, HoloLens and Andromeda. When it comes to the desktop, it is quite fascinating to see that Qualcomm is targeting the strongest market Intel has, in a direct way.

Qualcomm over Intel

With the new confirmation being brought to the surface through the job listing that was posted by Qualcomm, we can clearly see that the Microsoft devices that will be launched in the future will have Qualcomm chipsets, not Intel CPUs.

It is believed that the Snapdragon 1000 processor will have a 12W Thermal Design Power and the dimensions of this Qualcomm SoC will be approximately 20×15 millimeters. This means that it will be significantly smaller than a processor from Intel in the similar core series, which would be around 45×24 millimeters. This can only suggest that there will be some space left for other components, as WinFuture notes.

Snapdragon will definitely make an impact

Also, in case this new report is actually true, then Asus could easily be the first company to have a new laptop running on the new chipset. The chipset is rumored to have 4G LTE modems and some other features that could make devices powered by Snapdragon to be quite distinct from those powered by Intel.

One thing is for sure, the Snapdragon 1000 SoC is going to have either an outstanding performance boost or a bigger number of cores. Whichever that might be, it’s certainly what users need. We would definitely be more than happy to see that Qualcomm’s most powerful mobile processor will power Microsoft’s most captivating products.
