After the recent Apple-Qualcomm legal war, we saw some drastic changes in the industry going against Qualcomm. However, the American-based company is fighting back to acquire its previous position and for that, Qualcomm has announced a Snapdragon processor that can take on the challenge of running a 16GB RAM smartphone.
The proposed name of this upcoming flagship is Snapdragon 1000 and according to the rumours, it is going to have a radical TDP, performance, and feature set that will blow other SoCs out of the water.
The Die Size
The main thing of concern here is that Qualcomm isn’t in a position to confirm that whether they can accommodate this huge performance chip in the size of a normal smartphone processor die. Chances are that we might get to see a much bigger processor than the traditional smartphone and tablet SoCs.
For the power input, the Snapdragon 1000 reportedly runs with a 12W TDP. Now compare it with a conventional 6.5W TDP of the Snapdragon 850 and think of the structural changes that the manufacturing company will have to go through.
