Windows news – Qualcomm’s semiconductor manufacturers and Microsoft officially introduced the Snapdragon 835 chipset that can operate Windows 10-based laptops in the Computex 2017 event in Taipei, Taiwan.
Pete Bernard (Principal Group Program Manager, Partner & Customer Engagement R & D) confirmed the Snapdragon 835 chipset capable of running Windows 10 like a PC or laptop in general.
“Windows 10 is running on this 835 Snapdragon, the same as Windows 10 running on other chipsets,” Pete said as quoted by Qualcomm.
Qualcomm is planning to enter the laptop market that has been dominated by Intel. Qualcomm will also work with Asus, HP, and Lenovo to launch Windows 10 devices based on the ARM architecture.
Qualcomm promises its device battery can last 50 percent longer than Intel-based processors and on average can last up to 20 hours. In addition, ARM-based agen poker online tools also offer Connected Standby experience.
Don McGuire (VP of Global Product, Qualcomm) said Qualcomm has also conducted a customer survey to find out their needs for a laptop before launching Snapdragon 835.
“The size of the circuit board with Snapdragon 835 is much more compact than our competitors. OEMs have more space for other components, for example batteries, “Don said.
According to Qualcomm’s survey, users really want a sleek laptop and have a large battery capacity. With the latest Snapdragon 835, OEM pinned the larger capacity battery.
In addition, the X14 LTE modem on Snapdragon 835 is able to offer internet connection speeds up to 1Gbps. “The speed of X14 LTE is three to seven times faster than the average speed of broadband in the US,” he said.
Earlier this year, Microsoft announced that all Windows 10 desktop applications could operate on 16 million ARM-based devices.
The first Qualcomm processor that can run Windows 10 is Snapdragon 835. ARM-based Windows 10-based devices will offer devices that are very thin, lightweight, and fanless.
Qualcomm and Microsoft still have not revealed when the Windows 10 ARM device will be available in the market. But Steve Mollenkopf (CEO of Qualcomm) said that the device will not launch the processor until the fourth quarter of this year.
