AMD Always Connected PCs will include Qualcomm modems

Qualcomm takes aim at Intel in PC processors

Here's what you need to know about the HP Enxy x2.

At its technology summit in Maui this afternoon, Qualcomm provided some additional details of the results of its partnership with Microsoft to bring Windows to the chipmaker's SoCs. One of the highlights was Always Connected PCs, a new Snapdragon-based platform for compact, modular 2-in-1 Windows PCs. It's effectively a Snapdragon version of the Spectre x2.

"The NovaGo features a 13.3" 1920 x 1080 10-point multitouch display that sports a 178-degree viewing angle, 100% sRGB color gamut, and an ultra-thin 8.9mm bezel.

Contrary to what you might expect, the new Windows 10 ARM computers don't look hugely different from their Intel counterparts.

Rumored for next generation flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S9 and LG G7, Qualcomm today officially announced the Snapdragon 845 processor. Qualcomm boasts battery life of up to 25 hours, plus instant power on and performance that is on par with an Intel computer.

RBI Given Ammunition To Hold Rates As Indian Economy Recovers
The Central Statistics Office's (CSO) data disclosed that GDP for Q2 stood at Rs 31.66 lakh crore, or a growth of 6.3 per cent. The growth in the agriculture slowed to 1.7% compared to 2.3% in the last quarter and 4.1% in the same quarter past year .

The new Envy x2 is nearly unrecognizable compared with its brushed-aluminum ancestor, which featured all-day battery life but a painfully slow Intel Atom processor when it debuted in 2013. Impressive stuff, especially when it comes to the 22 hours of playback on a notebook. Users can use both eSIMs and Nano SIMs on the device.

That's not all as standy time is quoted at 700 hours and HP says you can get 0-90 percent charge in just 90 minutes. Qualcomm says that devices running the just-announced Snapdragon 845 processor and X20 modem will arrive next year.

This means we're now seeing a laptop capable of 1Gbps speeds, which are three to seven times faster than your broadband speeds at home, depending on where you live.

You can also detach the keyboard cover completely and use the Envy x2 as a standalone tablet akin to the iPad Pro. Asus has already revealed that prices will start at just $599 United States for the base model, which includes 4GB of RAM and 64GB of built-in storage. There's audio by Bang & Olufsen, a microSD card slot, a USB-C port, a 13Mp rear camera and 5Mp front camera.
