Qualcomm, Microsoft Announce First Windows 10 Laptops With Snapdragon 835 Processors

Xiaomi confirms Snapdragon 845 will power its Mi 7

The story isn't different this year (2018) and just this week, Qualcomm was at the Hawaii Tech Summit this week to unveil the new Snapdragon 845 processor that will succeed the highly successful Snapdragon 835 that powers lots of high-end phones released this year.

Cristiano Amon, Executive Vice President of Qualcomm Technologies and Terry Myerson, Executive Vice President of the Windows and Devices Group at Microsoft, reiterated their collaboration to deliver Windows 10 on Snapdragon.

On the outside, the Asus NovaGo looks like any other ultrabook. But given the fact that two of the crucial components in a phone are made by Qualcomm - the processor and the wireless connectivity chips - anything that Qualcomm announces is important. The NovaGo feels sturdy in the hand, perhaps a bit heavier than some other ultrabooks we've tried. HP also showcased the HP ENVY X2 which is the company's new product having a detachable form factor, powered by a Snapdragon 835 chip and offering a 20 hour plus battery life. We see great possibility and opportunity for us.

Jerry Shen, CEO at Asus showcased the NovaGo convertible notebook which is said to offer up to 22 hours of of video playback and up to 30 day standby time. Flat wages have been set against the meteoric rise of a new class of billionaire plutocrats to create a picture of massive and chronic income inequality and unfairness, and that impression appeared to help elect Trump.

A fingerprint reader hides within the Asus NovaGo's touchpad. More on that in our full review. It's also announced the upcoming Snapdragon 845, and a bevy of improvements to go along with it. The PC features a dual USB 3.1 Type-A ports and one HDMI port. Unlike other standard computers, the NovaGo is pre-loaded with Windows 10 S with support for Windows Hello, Windows Ink, and Cortana digital assistant. We're told this makes them quickly patchable. Qualcomm even believes the chipset will be better in these regards than many full-blown DSLR or mirrorless camera models today with 4K video recording. When we tried the PowerPoint desktop app, the NovaGo slowed down and then actually crashed. The Adreno 630 GPU promises a 30 percent boost in gaming performance compared to its predecessor as well. Qualcomm also optimised the platform for Google, Android and Facebook development frameworks, under the Snapdragon Neural Processing Engine. Up to 35GB of system disk is reserved for system recovery software.

This time Microsoft is coming at the ARM category in a more traditional way for Redmond - working closely with the platform provider and enabling OEM partners. I installed Google Chrome, and tried loading the same site on both Chrome and Edge.

That means that well over 1 million Americans still need to be drawn back into the work force. Geekbench reported a single-core of 857, and a multi-core score of 3117.

In security front, Snapdragon 845 introduces a hardware isolated subsystem called the secure processing unit (SPU), which is designed to add vault-like characteristics to existing layers of Qualcomm Technologies' mobile security solutions.
