Qualcomm announced at Computex that together with Lenovo it will launch the first 5G PC with a Snapdragon chip. According to Qualcomm, the PC, Project Limitless, contains the first 7nm platform purpose-built for PCs with 5G connectivity.
The PC is controlled by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx 5G computer platform, which is designed to support both 5G and 4G connections. The platform also combines the Qualcomm Adreno 680 GPU with the Qualcomm Kryo 495 CPU.
According to the company, the battery in the device must last for several days on one charge. According to Qualcomm, this is partly due to the Snapdragon 8cx, which has to offer “extreme battery life”. The chip would come with “extreme performance” and “extreme connectivity”. It also supports multi-gigabit data rates, enterprise applications and various security features.
Inside the laptop there is also a Snapdragon X55 modem for the new mobile internet connection. This allows users to experience top-download speeds of up to 7 Gbps without the need for a WiFi connection or hotpot. At 4G, the maximum download speed is 2.5 Gbps.
According to Qualcomm, the laptop provides a variety of new and smarter features by combining the 5G connection with artificial intelligence (AI) on board the device. For example, users can use the faster Internet connection to translate real-time conversations, for example in a video conversation between English and Chinese colleagues.
In addition, the laptop would have such good connectivity and performance, that there is little difference in experience between local and remote storage. For example, it is possible to edit a video remotely, in real-time with others, and upload the result almost immediately. According to Qualcomm, this is made possible by the extremely low latency, extreme performance and extreme performance of the Snapdragon 8cx.
When we can expect Project Limitless and what the laptop will cost, is not yet known. Also, there are no details yet about e.g. storage and the exact size of the battery.This news article was automatically translated from Dutch to give Techzine.eu a head start.
