Clearly, Qualcomm has also long noticed this.
Roland Quandt, director of WinFuture, a well-known informer, gave further information on the "Nine Dragons 1000" on the 22nd.
"Shaolong 950" and "Shaolong 1000" were the first to sneak up at the beginning of the month. Although Qualcomm does not necessarily adopt a similar name for future commercial use, the point of view of the chip itself is the most important thing we should pay attention to, because Quandt emphasized that this is Qualcomm's processor for Win10 PCs is completely different from the current "grafting" of notebooks based on mobile SoCs.
It is reported that the new temporary SoC "Shaolong 1000" SoCDevelopmentThe platform has been molded with a maximum of 16GB RAM and 2x128GB UFS flash memory.
The SoC package size is 20x15mm. What is the concept?
According to public information, the chip cover area of the Xiaolong 835 is 153 square millimeters, and the "Nine Dragon 1000" almost doubled. In addition, Intel's 8-generation Core U series low-voltage processor package area is only 42x24mm.
What's more interesting is that on the development board, the "Snapdragon 1000" is still slot-like, that is, like the AMD/Intel processor, the power can be taken down and replaced.
Obviously, large chips will be able to integrate more transistors and push high performance.
Earlier, Roland also pointed out that the thermal design power consumption of the "Shaolong 1000" may be as high as 12W, while the Xiaolong 850 is only 6.5W. It is said that Asustek is secretly cooperating with Qualcomm to develop the Veron 1000 verification machine, code-named Primus.
