Qualcomm and ARM plan to develop cheaper notebooks with Snapdragon 7cx


Qualcomm 7cxIt is known that Qualcomm chips with ARM architecture can be responsible for making the device with high economic power available in the market, but the counterpoint is that the Windows 10 operating system is limited in devices that bring this platform in its housing.

It turns out that the interface can only run on the 32-bit build, leaving most of the software used today outside of notebooks with the Snapdragon 835 platform, for example. To remove this limitation, Qualcomm and ARM may be working on a new product, which for now serves as the Snapdragon 7cx, and aims to make Microsoft OS fully usable on computers, as well as reduce its ultimate cost.

When Qualcomm announced the first laptops to come with the company’s chipset, several qualities of the products were seen, especially regarding the battery management that made the energy of the handsets spend more than 20 hours, attracting the attention of users, even with a starting price at $ 599 and could reach $ 799.

However, when doing a general analysis of the electronic as work equipment, it was noticed the ARM architecture failure to not allow the execution of Windows 10 in 64 bits, even with all the programs updating their encodings to adapt to this new format of the operating system.

Seeing the need to increase the lifespan of the notebooks sold and further reduce the value charged in them, Qualcomm realized that the Snapdragon 7cx platform is the best way to stimulate the interest of developers. According to the company, this new version will cost between $ 300 to $ 800, where the initial value is much lower than that applied in the first generation.

It is worth remembering that the chipset maker has not yet informed a date to present this news, saying that we will all see this new chip “in the coming months”.
