According to the information available to WinFuture the new and rather big ARM chips SDM1000 chips are expected to sit in the territory of stronger x86 processors, think Intel Atom or Celeron series. Hence, users may have the power to replace their old Snapdragon processor with the newest one on their Windows 10 PC. This tandem is built in creating an ARM-based SDM1000 chip which is supposed to be as the Snapdragon 1000. The U series chips are used for powering Ultrabooks. There's even purported support for Gigabit WLAN, meaning the next wave of Always Connected PCs could lead Qualcomm down an entirely new, and very exciting path. The SD 1000 chipset appears to be having 6.5W power drawing to its own CPU and an overall output of 12W for the whole SoC.
And a reference design quoted could shed some light on the machines you're likely to find sporting the chip. ASUS "Primus", a device based on Windows featuring Architecting a Smarter World (ARM) is already in the production stage.
However, the concerns for the matching of SDM1000 with Intel CPUs regarding bandwidth, raw performance and flexibility are profound despite the near similarities in TDP.
In terms of actual chip size, the Qualcomm Snapdraon 1000 will measure at 20 x 15 mm, which will be much smaller than the entry level Intel chipsets, which offers 15W TDP with a physical size of 45 x 24 mm.
This means the Snapdragon 1000 could be as big as Intel's processors, which would be an interesting change for Qualcomm.
