Windows 10 users are about to receive some good news. The latest Qualcomm announcement might revolutionize the Windows 10 experience. The company announced its new Snapdragon 7c and 8c at the Tech Summit, which took place in Hawaii. Recently the Snapdragon 8cx was announced by Qualcomm as well.
It appears that Qualcomm has prepared some serious improvements for its Snapdragon products. The main goal is offering super high cellular connectivity speeds to all notebook PCs, regardless of their price.
If we take a look at the Snapdragon 7c, we can see that it aims to bring a 25% system performance boost for entry-level devices. More than that, the new chip should also double the battery life. The Snapdragon 8c processor should offer even more, and the system performance will be 30% better compared to the Snapdragon 850.
The 8c will also come with an integrated Snapdragon X24 LTE modem, which enables multi-gigabit connectivity speeds when it comes to cloud computing.
“Qualcomm Technologies’ innovation in smartphones and connectivity placed the power of your desktop PC in your phone, now the phone is returning the favor by bringing thin, light, always-on, always-connected, all-day battery life experiences to your PC,” explained Alex Katouzian, senior vice president and general manager of Qualcomm Technologies.
At the moment, we do not know which PC manufacturers will start using the new processors, but further information should become available in the near future. We should also remember the fact that Qualcomm is also preparing to launch its Snapdragon 865 chip for smartphones.
“The mobile-first consumer wants an experience on par with a smartphone, and we have the innovation, the inventions, and the technology to enable this experience for customers across price points,” added Katouzian.
