However, the chip is actually a Snapdragon 845 with a higher speed. Given Snapdragon 845 is a processor for smartphones, that means, Snapdragon 850 still will not be able to compete with Intel processors.
Now, news emerged that Qualcomm will make a special processor for PCs, which is supposed to be named Snapdragon 1000.
WinFuture successfully found information related to the processor SDM1000 which is supposedly a Snapdragon 1000 made for PC. Snapdragon 1000 will have a performance that is not less than Intel's Core processor.
Compared to a CPU with an ARM architecture that only measures 20 millimeters x 15 millimeters, Snapdragon 1000 will have a much larger size. In addition, it is rumored, this CPU will use 12 watts of power, much higher than the power required by the smartphone processor.
The information circulated, Snapdragon 1000 mentioned will use the next architecture of ARM, Cortex-A76, with a speed of 35 percent higher and supports up to 16GB of RAM and storage up to 128GB.
Unfortunately, it is still unknown when Qualcomm will announce the SDM1000. While Intel is busy to make the 10nm processor and the growing popularity of PCs that use ARM-based processors.
