Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 850 Mobile Compute Platform is 2nd Generation 10 nm chipset which is going to power a whole new windows-based laptop series. These chips are as smart as they are powerful, QUALCOMM focused on new architecture for AI and immersion technologies. One may question, an ARM-powered windows laptop? what about speed ad stability? S850 chips are have CPU clocked up to 2.96 Ghz with 8 Kryo 385 cores on top of ARM cortex technology. And with updated Adreno 630 Visual Processing sub system and Hexagon 685 DSP.
Qualcomm is steered towards providing always on and always connected experience.
With efficient processor technology, architecture and modern form factors that run cool and quiet without fans increases battery life and 30% faster graphics and processing speed. According to early birds battery endurance is 4 to 5 times of the normal laptops on normal usage. You can get on and work instantly with a touch of a button. S850’s battery can lasts up to 25 hours depending on the usage.

Reach AI Environment:
This mobile computing chip is equipped with Qualcomm’s Artificial Intelligence Engine and Heterogeneous computing architecture which enables seamless UI experience, efficient battery life and processing power.
Windows in a Mobile Platform:
Qualcomm with Microsoft are working to natively run Windows 64 bit Arm Platform for this new chip. As they work on that, 64 bit emulated Arm platform is also getting constant updates to optimize Apps accordingly. This mobile compute chip also supports Microsoft AI and Microsoft’s voice assistant Cortana.
