Around the same time last year, Qualcomm made its entry into the PC-space with Snapdragon 835-powered Windows 10 thin-and-lights and convertibles. Then at Computex, the company followed it up with the Snapdragon 850 which had slightly faster performance. Yet, both the chips were essentially made for smartphones first and as such, couldn’t compete with Intel-powered PCs all that much. What it did offer was all-round connectivity with an integrated LTE modem and around a day’s worth of battery life. At the 3rd Annual Snapdragon Tech Summit in Hawaii, Qualcomm unveiled the Snapdragon 8CX. It will power the next wave of ‘always-connected’ PCs and Qualcomm claimed a big boost in performance that, according to the company, is comparable to that of Intel’s chips. While it’s too early to put out a verdict, we did get a chance to use a Snapdragon 8CX powered device for a few minutes, and by the looks of it, a lot has improved while somethings just never change.
