major technology brands are set to produce sleek, thin and fanless PCs running a Windows 10 experience with LTE connectivity.
Qualcomm at Computex 2017, announced that ASUS, HP and Lenovo are the first original equipment manufacturers (OEM) to develop mobile PCs powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Mobile PC Platform featuring the X16 LTE modem.
Each company is set to produce sleek, thin and fanless PCs running a Windows 10 experience with LTE connectivity. Coupled with the 10nm leading node efficiency of the Snapdragon 835 Mobile PC Platform, these devices will feature all-day battery life. New PCs will include support for all Windows applications, including Microsoft Office.
The Snapdragon 835 SoC built into the Mobile PC Platform features the Qualcomm Kryo 280 CPU, Qualcomm Adreno 540 GPU and Qualcomm Hexagon 682 DSP, to manage separate heterogenous workloads.
The Snapdragon 835 provides devices with thermal handling and power efficiency, enabling fanless designs with longer battery life, attributed to it being on the 10nm process node. With an integrated Snapdragon X16 Gigabit LTE modem, devices will be able to support peak download speeds of up to 1Gbps. The Snapdragon 835 Mobile PC Platform will also feature 2x2 802.11ac MU-MIMO for optimal Wi-Fi connectivity on the go.
