AMD Forges Alliance With Qualcomm For Always-Connected Ryzen Mobile Products

HP, Asus announce first Windows 10 ARM PCs Snapdragon 845 Unveiled: Here's What to Expect
Terence Owen | 05 December, 2017, 23:07

HP and ASUS have reportedly worked with Microsoft very closely to make this a reality.

The architecture of Qualcomm's Snapdragon processors is fundamentally much more efficient than the x86 and x64 processor architectures that have traditionally powered Windows devices.

The ASUS NovaGo is being touted as the first Gigabit LTE laptop that is able to efficiently stay connected while lasting all day - up to 22 hours.

Russian Athletes Allowed at 2018 Olympics Without Flag, Anthem
The IOC received a report from Samuel Schmid, whose commission was tasked with examining the system, before issuing its decision. In Sochi, he showered favors including luxury cars on Russian champions as the national team topped the medals table.

If you've picked up a flagship phones from the likes of Google, Samsung or HTC in 2017 then the likelihood is that it'll be powered by the Snapdragon 835 mobile platform - now Qualcomm has unveiled its successor.

While this might seem like it wouldn't offer enough performance to power the full fat Windows 10 S operating system that comes baked in, the tablet performed admirably as we navigated the interface and used Microsoft's Office applications and browsing the web on Edge.

At just 1.54 pounds, the HP Envy x2, which is the company's latest Surface clone, is lighter even than the 12-inch MacBook (2016), which weighs a mere 2 pounds. The companies announced all-new Windows on ARM PCs, including HP's Envy x2 and ASUS's NovaGo. The device with 4GB RAM and 64GB SSD will be available for $599, the one with 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD for $799. This is a huge advantage for mobile users, who can simply add these devices to their cellular accounts and receive internet connectivity anywhere in the world, allowing them to simply turn on their device and start working instead of hunting for Wi-Fi hotspots. Both devices will ship with Windows 10S, but ASUS and HP are offering free upgrades to Windows 10 Pro before September 30, 2018. We don't have any more details about specs or pricing, but HP said that it was coming in Spring 2018.
