Snapdragon 8CX yet to ship
Samsung was the first to announce a Snapdragon 8CX design and promised to ship the system this fall, but so far, we haven’t seen any preorders taking place.
Tuned up and rebranded
A Microsoft hardware event revealed the latest Intel, ARM and AMD based products and Surface Pro X based on ARM caught a lot of attentio. To set things straight, the Microsoft SQ1 is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8CX.
AMD powered 15-inch Surface and Intel-powered 13- and 15-inch
Rumor has it that Microsoft will show an updated Surface Pro based on the Snapdragon 8CX Compute Platform, steering away from the usual Intel-only update. There will also be a 15 inch AMD version so Microsoft is definitely opening up to diverse manufacturers.
Extreme battery life with Snapdragon X55 modem
Cristiano Amon, President of Qualcomm, just announced that the Snapdragon 8cx Always-Connected PC platform will get a 5G version. The Snapdragon 8cx SoC is matched with the Snapdragon X55 modem to support SA, NSA, and up to 7Gbps downloads speeds.
