Qualcomm takes aim at Intel in PC processors

Asus NovaGo

The news followed Qualcomm's confirmation at the event that it will be launching a new mobile platform - the Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip.

Windows 10 on ARM is a reboot of Microsoft's earlier attempts to marry mobile processors with full laptop experiences.

News that Microsoft and Qualcomm would soon power PCs with ARM-based chipsets arrived past year, but we've seen close to nothing regarding the concept's existence. The Envy X2 is very similar to numerous Surface Pro types of computers that already exist, while the NovaGo feels just like any other budget to midrange laptop.

The NovaGo starts with 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage at $599. There is definitely a lot of excitement about Windows 10 on ARM right now, but the first models won't be based on Qualcomm's latest and greatest silicon: indeed, the company also announced its new Snapdragon 845 processor today, which will likely we found in all flagship Android smartphones next year.

National Football League suspends Patriots' Rob Gronkowski one game for illegal hit
Why Gronkowski was so frustrated is a mystery. "It was a lot of frustration and I was just really frustrated at that moment. Gronkowski was flagged for unnecessary roughness. "I understand, " Belichick said to McDermott ".


Contrary to what you might expect, the new Windows 10 ARM computers don't look hugely different from their Intel counterparts.

As for the HP model, the Envy x2 has a 12.3-inch HD display, up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, a stylus, d and a detachable form factor. The machine will come with Windows 10 S pre-installed and will only run applications from Microsoft's Windows Store. The Envy relies entirely on USB Type-C ports for its input and output, while the Asus has full-size USB Type-A ports and an HDMI port. Qualcomm boasts battery life of up to 25 hours, plus instant power on and performance that is on par with an Intel computer.

You can also detach the keyboard cover completely and use the Envy x2 as a standalone tablet akin to the iPad Pro.

The Windows on ARM PCs are part of a broader Always Connected PC initiative, but those cellular machines don't need to have an ARM processor. The company didn't give many details about the processor but said Samsung's foundry business will be manufacturing the chip. Out of no-where, Kevin Lensing, CVP and GM of the Client Business Unit at AMD, was invited onto the stage to announce that AMD and Qualcomm were in a connectivity partnership.
