    I am shocked... shocked I tell you :)
    I guess I"m missing some threads I should pay closer attention.

    PS: Samsung has done everything possible, dropped every hint, etc, short of just announcing the darn thing that the next Galaxy Book will also be WOS based. I'm certain it will be one of the premier devices for the SnapDragon 1000 platform or whatever they call it. (and rumors are that it's going to have it's own completely made up name something like Intel did with Itaniumo_O)

    So what's the deal between this and the 8cx? Which one is going to be Qualcomm's real "premiere" WOA chip? ;)

    So don't take this as fact, but as distillation of various things we have heard.

    The 1000 is going to be a Windows specific chip with optimizations specific to and only beneficial to Windows ARM....different caching structure, supporting shared memory between the CPU and graphics subsystem more like intel's current shared memory architecture with the core I series and the 6xx graphics controller etc.

    That being said, the core is based on the current 8xx series chips that are in the latest Android cell phones such as the Samsung S10 series. That's what the "10,000 FT. level" briefing we got said anyway.

    So I'm thinking maybe 8cx as a family and 1000 as the specific chip.

    Uh oh.. time to start thinking about selling the Book2! :D What's your prediction for the arrival date of the next wave of WOA/WOS tablets?

    That information I don't have but i think we might hear something around CES in January 2020 since the new chips haven't even been released for sampling yet

    Hey, maybe MS reads these forums? I mean, I'm still kind of in the dark, but for the first time the update page says something about a feature update existing but not being ready. Progress! :thumbsup: As an aside, how's that for doublespeak. "Your device isn't quite ready for it." They actually mean "we haven't managed to get it working for your device yet", but that would be too honest..

    That is first rate MS corporate speak :)

    Seriously though, wifi issues aside, we are eager to get this update for our customers. I ran some informal internal benchmarks while I dev 1903 build and there are some significant performance improvements especially in X86 emulation (about 25% or so)

    “Some things can’t be rushed: good music, good wine...”



    “Microsoft will push no feature update before its time.”

    Yeah, that’s the angle they’re going for. Your Windows device needs to age properly before it’s ready for an exquisite feature update from Paul Ma Microsoft.

    I'm sure they want to avoid another case like
