At Computex, Qualcomm has announced its collaboration with Samsung to integrate its Snapdragon 850 Mobile Compute Platform, featuring the Snapdragon X20 LTE modem and the Qualcomm AI Engine in a future device.
The Snapdragon 850 Mobile Compute Platform is designed to support many sought-after smartphone features in the PC and to stay connected to LTE or Wi-Fi so users can receive notifications and have their data virtually always synced on the go. Qualcomm claims that its power-efficient architecture is engineered to support up to 30 per cent system-wide increase in performance and up to 3x AI performance over the previous generation, as well as up to 1.2Gbps LTE connectivity speeds and up to 25 hours of continuous usage or multi-day battery life under normal usage conditions.
With 10nm node efficiency, the Snapdragon 850 Mobile Compute Platform promises to allow more portable and fanless designs for mobile customers, compared to current 14nm solutions. In addition, new and improved features on the Snapdragon 850 Mobile Compute Platform can support on-device experiences for AI, and users can expect camera, voice and battery life enhancements. In addition, acclaimed advanced graphics and high-quality audio are designed to allow users to maximise their entertainment while viewing or capturing, all while bringing a Windows 10 experience, complete with productivity utilising Cortana, entertainment and security.
Windows 10 devices powered by the Snapdragon Mobile Compute Platform are expected to be available later this year.
