Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8cx Brings 7nm Technology To PCs

Qualcomm first announced the well awaited Snapdragon 855 mobile processor with a ton of features ranging from better AI, image processing and most importantly the support of 5G thanks to the Snapdragon™ X50 Modem. The company however also announced a new Snapdragon 8cx chip for PCs. The company has pretty much cornered the smartphone markets and now is planning on expanding.

The PC markets ruled by Intel will definitely pose a hurdle for the newcomer but the technological advancements are extraordinary. The manufacturers confirm that the 8cx chip is built exclusively for PCs offering top-notch performance and with minimal battery usage thanks to the 7nm architecture. The firm says that the performance is on par with an Intel Core i5. The company also confirmed that it has gone all out for the specifications bringing the best and most efficient CPU and GPU combination to users. The processor based on the 7nm would host a 10MB cache for better all-round performance while the GPU being twice as fast as the Adreno 630.

The firm stated that their main objective is to bring high-performance chips in a very minute form factor while maintaining efficiency. The Snapdragon 8cx seems to achieve just that, thanks to the 7nm design with very little trade-offs. The 8cx will also come with a Snapdragon  X24 4G LTE modem which will allow users to achieve speeds up to 2Gbps. As far as battery life is concerned the chip will allow Quick Charge 4+ which in terms of PCs is unheard of. The chip also supports USB 3.1 Gen 2, which means that it can handle 4K HDR without breaking a sweat.

The concept, however, is still very much in its early phases and won’t be launching before Q3 2019 but any competition is good for the consumer and we expect to hear more about it very soon.
