Last Thursday, the General announced the Snapdragon 7c and 8c, two derivatives of snapdragons 8cx, which will provide the opportunity for more cheap PC to use the Snapdragon 8cx advantages: fanless platform, long battery life and constant connection.
This is a brave move. Qualcomm’s advanced Snapdragon 8cx computer processor can be said to be difficult to compete with Intel’s core and AMD Ryzen, at least from a performance point of view..nevertheless, the decision of the company, cheaper, and probably less powerful Snapdragon chip with a computer is the way forward.
“We believe that there should be a Snapdragon for everyone,”said Miguel Nunez, senior direcor of Product Management comoute products, said during a theme in the Xiaolong technical summit. He promised too many days of battery life, immediate and universal connection with all of these platforms.
High also announced an enterprise version of its computing platforms, presumably, the 8cx, 8c, and 7c to the business computer. (After adding 5G capabilities 8cx this past summer, a high-pass and now sometimes refers to the Snapdragon 8cx for the Snapdragon 8cx5G computing platform.) However, the General also does not provide detailed information 7c or 8c price or performance.
Intel and AMD have previously said, lingering handle the shortage prompted the two companies target the high-performance, high-profit sector of business, leaving gaps in the more expensive, inefficient part of the market. This is a period of high hopes to fill its 7c and 8c chips. We have yet to see a”pure”version of the Snapdragon 8cx inside the computer, while the face X using half of the customized version, called Microsoft SQ1. (The Samsung Galaxy Book also use 8cx.)
Now, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 7c and 8c are trying to expand market presence. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 7c is referred to as”the battery life you should get the performance you need.” The chip will be put into the gate-level computers, according to Peter Burns, Marketing Lead for the two chips, and he called the Snapdragon 8cx chip”advanced design with extreme performance.”
“But what about all the other layers? How do we drive scale? How do we better serve all our customers, and our great connection experience to the other level?” The combustion of the pre-introduction.
One analyst believes 7c and 8c is a way, by pushing past the program compatibility issues, and put the hard stop on the use of some of the more powerful applications. “With the 8cx they established a level of credibility and everyday computing applications, and now with more affordable price, they can really drive volume, which is very critical, in order to obtain better development support,”said Ross Rubin,founder and principal analyst at Reticle Research. “You see reviews of the product, such as the face X, and the compatibility issues that range from Photoshop, they probably don’t shoot, safe Deposit box, it would seem more like a legitimate case.”
Some basic performance parameters
Demanding Snapdragon 7c chip will provide up to 20% better performance Snapdragon 850 chip, a power chip like the Galaxy Book 2. The high-pass matching up the eight-core Kryo468 with adrenal 618GPU and Snapdragon 15LTE modem. (The Kryo460, the different CPU core in the same Kryo4 series Family, as part of the Snapdragon 675 with the gender of the core at 2GHz, the six efficiency of the kernel running to 1. 7GHz in.) The General also said its AI engine will provide five billion operations per second(top), the benefit from the machine learning operation. The battery life will be twice as”competing platforms,”whether these end up.
This Snapdragon 8c, by contrast, will provide a 30%comparative increase in the Snapdragon 850, there are six mask under the acceleration AI capabilities. It will provide a”response,”the high General said. Although high not to expose the internal structure of the 8c, it says it will use the X24 modem, it supports CAT20LTE it. It is also unclear whether the 7c and 8c7 Nm part, although 8cx it.
Unfortunately, performance has been a sticking point Snapdragon The Machine. Is Snapdragon 8cx strong enough to prove that its new low-end part? This is a very big problem, and a clear Bank on its total access, all-day value of the proposal.
One wrinkle: a Microsoft Executive appeared on the stage to provide a high-way out the window of the virtual desktop, which can connect and run a high performance application, remote. Microsoft will even port project xCloud cloud game app High computer in 2020, will be connected through the computer.
However, it will be interesting to see how the PC makers should pass the new 7c and 8c processor, what the traction is high you can get the low end of the value PC market, how consumers will respond.
