Qualcomm reveals Snapdragon 850 chipset for Windows 10 PCs

Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 850 is a processor built with laptops in mind The Snapdragon 850 is Qualcomm's first chip built for Windows PCs

As Qualcomm explains it, the Snapdragon 850 was "designed to support many sought-after smartphone features in the PC", which means connectivity at all times through LTE or WiFi. Nonetheless, it seems Qualcomm is willing to give Windows 10 on ARM a dedicated chip, even if it's not built from the ground up for PCs - the Snapdragon 850 will not be used in any phones.

Intel is playing the card that not only are devices powered by their chips are sleek and lovely, but they are packed with performance too. The company still believes that longer battery life, an always connected device that is instant on, and a fast and constant wireless LTE connection are ingredients for a solution that consumers want and that is not being addressed by Intel or AMD today. The Snapdragon 845 uses two quad core configurations: A Cortex-A75 (branded as the Kryo 385 Gold) cluster clocked at up to 2.8GHz and a quad-core Cortex-A55 cluster (branded as the Kryo 385 Silver) clocked at 1.77GHz. Announced at Computex 2018, the new chipset follows the Snapdragon 845 and its predecessor the Snapdragon 835, themselves already finding their way into Windows 10 on ARM notebooks and convertibles. It is boasted to deliver 20 percent faster Gigabit LTE speeds, going from 1Gpbs on the Snapdragon 835 to 1.2Gbps.

The latter comes courtesy of the Snapdragon X20 LTE modem, itself having some significant improvements over Qualcomm's earlier LTE modems. HDR is also supported and Qualcomm chips have native support for aptX HD audio. In Microsoft's case that will particularly focus on Cortana, though developers will be able to tap into chip level processing for their own machine learning requirements.

Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens resigns amid invasion of privacy investigation
During one sexual encounter between the two, the woman said he "smacked me and grabbed me and shoved me down on the ground". Louis grand jury indicted Greitens on February 22 on one felony count of invasion of privacy related to the alleged photo.

Sprint has said that it plans to offer its customers free unlimited data in 2018 with AutoPay on Qualcomm Snapdragon Always Connected PCs from Asus, HP and Lenovo.

Qualcomm wouldn't give a specific date for when to expect Windows 10 devices powered by the Snapdragon 850, saying only to expect them in retail "later this year".
