Qualcomm makes the Snapdragon 845 processor official

Qualcomm Snapdragon 845

Qualcomm reserved about 10 minutes to the unveiling of its new Snapdragon 845 chipset at the Tech Summit that kicked off early today.

News that Microsoft and Qualcomm would soon power PCs with ARM-based chipsets arrived past year, but we've seen close to nothing regarding the concept's existence. The main USP of the device is the promise of all-day computing.

The HP ENVY x2 combines the best of Windows and with the smartphone freedom.

Regarding operating systems, both devices run Windows 10 S but can be upgraded to Windows 10 Pro for free.

As a result, first impressions from the new devices aren't hugely different from any other Windows 10 device.

Your photos of the supermoon
The only so-called supermoon of 2017 was shining bright over the Borders as it set this morning, December 4. As a result, the moon appears to be up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter during a supermoon.

Gone are the days of a USB dongle to add mobile data as the NovaGo offers Gigabit LTE thanks to the Qualcomm modem. The Envy X2 is very similar to numerous Surface Pro types of computers that already exist, while the NovaGo feels just like any other budget to midrange laptop.

What we do know is that the Asus NovaGo price starts at $599. The NovaGo can be similarly equipped with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, but its fixed display is a 13.3-inch 1920 x 1080 pixel panel. Frost didn't mention a stylus, but the machine was pictured with such a pen attached to its case, so it probably supports Windows Ink. "The Envy x2 will have a Surface-like detachable keyboard and will be just 0.3" (6.9 mm) thick. As with the outgoing Snapdragon 835, Samsung is the fabrication partner, and the 845 will be built on the company's 10nm process. It also says that the built-in LTE connectivity will provide significantly faster speeds than other now available LTE-equipped Windows 10 computers.

While processor-intensive applications are liable to suffer a significant performance hit from this emulation - Photoshop will work in the emulator, but it won't be very fast - applications that spend a substantial amount of time waiting around for the user - such as Word - should perform with adequate performance.

Those machines, which arrive with a whopping 20-hour battery life, run the current Snapdragon 835 processor, but it would make sense for Qualcomm to release some super-powered versions with this newly announced platform. Stay tuned for more.
