Home » Snapdragon 1000 CPU for Windows 10 on ARM is in the works

The very first generation of Windows 10 on ARM PCs is using a new OC and an old processor. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor was revealed back in 2016, and it’s not what it used to be. On the other hand, both ARM and Qualcomm are iterating fast, and the next Windows 10 on ARM systems could be able to provide enhanced performance compared to the first models that were released this year.

We’re referring to HP’s Envy x2. Asus and Lenovo are about to launch their own versions of Windows 10 on ARM PCs. Regarding HP Envy x2, most reviews highlighted the poor performance of emulated x86 apps.

Qualcomm reportedly has a new Snapdragon 1000 CPU in the works

Latest reports claim that Qualcomm is currently working on a new high-end Snapdragon 1000 CPU that will be used in the next Always Connected PCs. It seems that Asus could be the first Microsoft partner to use this new chip of a Windows 10 on ARM computer. Rumors say that the company is working on a new PC called Primus.

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 100 SoC will reportedly have a TDP of 6.5W, and this is quite similar to the thermal design power of Intel’s Core mobile CPUs.

Windows 10 on ARM is a great opportunity for Qualcomm

Qualcomm’s CPUs are already very popular on tablets and smartphones, and Windows 10 on ARM is a massive opportunity for Qualcomm to place its chips on laptops and 2-in-1s.

It will be interesting to see what the next gen Windows 10 on ARM PCs can bring new for the Always-Connected PCs. It’s exciting to note that there’s also an Intel version of the HP Envy x2 with an LTE modem that you can currently get at a $149 premium compared to the version that uses the Snapdragon 835.
