At the ongoing Computex 2018, Qualcomm has announced the all-new Snapdragon 850 Mobile Compute Platform just for Always-On Always Connected PCs. With this new 10nm-based chipset, the PCs can get better LTE connectivity along with extended battery life. During the Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform announcement, the company for the first time announced the processor targetting the Windows 10 PCs.
Now, the newly announced Snapdragon 850 is based on the Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform. This new chipset will feature the Snapdragon X20 LTE modem and the Qualcomm AI Engine. Just like the Snapdragon 845, the new Snapdragon 850 is also built on the second-gen 10nm FinFET process. Compared to Snapdragon 835 Mobile PC Platform, this new processor is said to offer 30% better performance and will last up to 25 hours on continuous usage.
With the use of Snapdragon X20 LTE modem, the PCs can also get up to 1.2 Gbps download speeds. Since the new Snapdragon 850 Mobile Compute Platform is based on the Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform, it won’t be made available for smartphones. The Snapdragon 850-powered computers will hit the markets only by the end of this year.
While Asus, HP, and few others announced the Always on PCs based on the Snapdragon 835 Mobile PC Platform, there will be more manufacturers adopting the new Snapdragon 845 Mobile Compute Platform. Samsung has been announced as the first OEM to bring the Snapdragon 850-powered Always on PCs.
