Intel stumbled into the mobile arena to become earnings with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon platform has grown, but now it seems that Qualcomm intends to rebound in the PC entry-level domain as well. Today, Microsoft and Qualcomm have announced that Windows will start working on systems powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon mobile chips.
This does not completely destroy the earth, because these are the mobile segments that work in what is still just a 2-in-1 convertible laptop or tablets, but the fact that Windows 10 – although lighter “Windows 10 S” – it can run on and should Intel Qualcomm 835 chips still worry a bit too.
These devices have the brains of smartphones with the battery capacity of laptops. Qualcomm, obviously, does not compete with Intel in the performance of its high-end chips, but one thing the company has highlighted today is how long it will be able to extend the battery life of its device.
They referred to this technology as “the rest of the day battery”, which, as the name suggests, indicate that the energy efficiency of this equipment will lead the battery life on the second day of full use, which is not Very likely on most laptops that work in a full business day. In addition, these computers are optimized to be always on and always available.
Asus and HP announced both “Windows on Qualcomm” devices, including Asus Novgo and HP Envy X2. Qualcomm highlighted the battery life for 20 hours on an Infiniti X2 device.
The main catch is that performance will suffer in applications that are not wop applications, so programs like Google Chrome or Firefox will be simulated in hardware, and certainly reduce performance.
Qualcomm is making a bet that it keeps Besi’s performance at good enough while making continuous improvements in battery life will be enough to convince the original team that is already building their smartphones on the Snapdragon mite to make the switch to Qualcomm Oolterportbalz for entry-level manufacturers. The idea of equipment that lasts 18-24 hours a day, as promised Qualcomm, obviously attractive, especially considering the amount of computer use is often limited to surfing the Internet, if the battery life Profits offset the performance sacrifices ultimately question.
