Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx: the real rival to Intel for the PC

By: Anthony Garreffa | Editorials in CPUs, Chipsets & SoCs | Posted: Dec 20, 2018 4:00 pm

Battery Life

 

This is where Qualcomm is the undeniable leader: an area where Intel can't touch them in the forseeable future, without some time travel or magic involved. Qualcomm will see over 20 hours of battery life with Snapdragon 8cx-powered laptops running Windows 10... not Android.

The new Snapdragon 8cx offers up multi-day battery life, with Qualcomm promising an insane 25+ hours of "premium computing". Even if you run out of charge or get below 50% the new Snapdragon 8cx has Quick Charge 4+ technology.

 

 

Connectivity

 

This is one area where Qualcomm continues to kill it, and the new Snapdragon 8cx is no exception. The company is using its impressive Snapdragon X24 LTE modem which ushers in up to 2Gbps connectivity, something the competition can't come close to. Upload speeds are equally as impressive, with up to 316Mbps on offer with the Snapdragon X24 modem.

 

 

Qualcomm also promises improved speeds in poor network conditions, with up to 70% better speeds. It's not just breakneck speeds that is on offer here, but we have huge amounts of cellular connection protocols as well in GSM, CDMA, EV-DO and both LTE FDD and LTE TDD, and more.
