AMD and Qualcomm Announce Partnership to Power Always Connected PCs

  • Here’s everything you need to know about ‘Always Connected’ Windows PCs and Gigabit LTE

Just that the NovaGo is running a mobile processor does not put the device into isolation. "According to PC Magazine, the machine has a 12.3" screen with a 3:2 aspect ratio, a fanless 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 835, and just 4 GB of memory.

Besides an always-on PC and huge battery life, one of the other benefits of a Snapdragon processor is that no cooling fan is required, so the Envy x2 will always be free of annoying fan noise.

Recently AMD announced it was bringing its new high-performance x86 CPU cores and its latest GPU architecture to the notebook space. With up to 20 hours of active use battery life, the detachable PC provides flexibility and connectivity to perform daily tasks while on the go.

Next, it was the turn of HP's Kevin Frost, who also unveiled a Snapdragon 835-powered Windows 10 laptop at the event: the HP Envy x2.

These devices are deigned to be always on like your phone and Asus says the NovaGo will offer more than 30 days of standby time.

The HP Envy x2 is more akin to a Microsoft Surface, with the ability to be used as a tablet, placed upright with a hinged stand on the back of the device, or connected to a keyboard mat. (Credit: Qualcomm/YouTube) While not revealing every detail about the Snapdragon 845, Qualcomm said the newest mobile processing platform would focus on six features: cameras that could take 360-degree photos, VR and AR immersion, artificial intelligence, security, Gigabit LTE and, of course, more power.

Qualcomm promised higher battery life when it announced the endeavor to create Always On Windows devices with its Snapdragon 835 SoC, and if Asus and HP's claims are true, these devices certainly appear to deliver on that promise. Pricing starts at $599.

The big unknowns at this point, other than whether or not HP's battery life claims hold up to our own lab tests, is how the Snapdragon chip will stack up performance- and price-wise compared with competing Intel-powered PCs. Microsoft's Terry Myerson came on stage today to briefly talk about these Windows 10 on ARM PCs, he later detailed the benefits of this new platform via a post on the Windows Experience Blog. The Envy x2 will also support an active stylus that is Windows Ink certified for activities such as note-taking and illustration.
