Computex showed prototypes of laptops with Windows 10 on Snapdragon 835
In late 2016, Qualcomm, together with Microsoft, announced the release of notebooks on the ARM-processor Snapdragon 835 in 2017. Computex 2017 presented a list of manufacturing partners that will manufacture laptops with a Snapdragon 835 processor on a full version of Windows 10. The partners of the project were companies such as Lenovo, HP and Asus.
Due to the small size of the chip manufacturers will be able to more flexibly place the hardware parts inside the case. This will also allow the use of larger capacity batteries.
In addition, Qualcomm said that in standby mode, laptops on the Snapdragon 835 processor will spend 4–5 times less energy than all other similar laptops on x86-processors.
In the standby mode, various services will work, including mail, data transmission and so on. All laptops with a Snapdragon processor will be equipped with an integrated LTE module using e-SIM technology. Large mobile operators will support this technology, and you can choose the tariff directly through the Windows Store.
During the demonstration, Microsoft demonstrated Excel, Word and PowerPoint running on a laptop with a Snapdragon processor. Demonstrated also the speed of Gigabit LTE. So, video as 1080p (probably a full movie is implied) was downloaded in just 30 seconds at a speed of 370 Mbps. And in the end, the company demonstrated the installation of a 32-bit 7-Zip application.
