Qualcomm Partners With HP, ASUS, Lenovo To Create Snapdragon 835 PCs
Today, Microsoft reveals that the company is partnering for Windows 10 ARM-powered PCs at Computex. Tech giants such as Asus, HP, as well as Lenovo, will be the first computer makers to develop “mobile PCs” that are powered by Qualcomm’s latest processor, which is the Snapdragon 835.
For the record, Microsoft first revealed its intentions to bring Windows desktop apps to mobile ARM processors last year. An ARM processor is a family of CPUs based on the reduced instruction set computer, also known as RISC. This processor makes 32-bit and 64-bit RISC multi-core processors and Microsoft laptops are the first projects with a version of Windows 10 that is supported by ARM.
According to The Verge, the Redmond-based multinational technology company has only succeeded to convince three PC makers to build these new laptops that will run Qualcomm’s ARM processors. If the software giant will not sign anymore on other parties by the end of the year, three is slightly less than the number of computer companies that helped launch the Windows RT nearly five years ago.
As far as the history is the concern, the first batch of Windows RT devices included devices comes from Samsung, Asus, Dell, Lenovo and Microsoft itself with the addition of the Surface RT. As of now, Qualcomm and Microsoft still aren’t exposing exactly when these new machines from the three parties will arrive.
Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf recently revealed that ARM-powered Windows 10 PCs won’t launch until the fourth quarter of this year. As reported by ExtremeTech, both giant companies are marketing these Windows 10 computers as having excellent battery life, LTE connection and support for all Windows applications.
Together with the ARM-powered PCs, Microsoft is also reported to support LTE on other Windows 10 devices. Tech firms such as VAIO, HP, Asus, Lenovo, Dell, Xiaomi and Huawei will all also create Windows 10 devices that will eventually support LTE. In addition to that, Microsoft is also working with a variety of operators in order to support eSIM.
