Snapdragon 7c/8c/8cx Compute Platform

Qualcomm's beefed up line of Snapdragon compute platform chips is something I want to cover in a deeper article, the same goes for the 5G side of things as I think there is just too much to digest in a single article.

I'll go over the Snapdragon 7c, 8c, and 8cx compute platform is a mega important one for Qualcomm, something that it is well and truly the leader in. I personally use a Snapdragon 850-powered Lenovo C630 and love the truly all-day battery life, but the new 8cx 5G offers something the competition simply can't touch -- all-day battery life with 5G connectivity.

There are now plenty of Snapdragon-powered ACPCs in the market from the likes of Lenovo, Samsung, Huawei, ASUS -- and recently, Microsoft with the new Surface Pro X. There are more on the way, with Lenovo and Qualcomm teasing a new 5G-powered ACPC coming in Q1 2020.

Qualcomm is truly redefining the mobile computing market, which just meant a 'mobile computer' years ago. Now we have super-fast 4G and soon 5G, multi-day battery life (the most important to me and millions of others), fanless (and thus, quiet) designs, faster performance as time goes on, Windows 10 support, and much more.

Qualcomm has a Snapdragon for everyone here, with the entry-level models to be powered by the Snapdragon 7c compute platform, the mainstream market with Snapdragon 8c, and the premium level with the flagship Snapdragon 8cx.

I'll dive deeper into the Snapdragon 7c, 8c, 8cx in a follow-up article soon.
