Qualcomm launches the all-new Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G for ARM-based laptops.

Qualcomm Snapdragon has been one of the major chipset manufacturers when it comes to Android mobile phones and they are known for their increased performance and low power consumption. Apart from focusing on smartphones, the company was also interested to make their mark in the category of laptops, and due to that, they announced their new Snapdragon 8cx two years ago. Although the chipset has not been launched in two years, the company is finally ready to launch the Gen 2 version of the chipset in this year’s IFA 2020. The new chipset is called the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G, which the company states is a major improvement in when compared to version one. 

The company has mentioned that the chipset will have “generational performance and efficiency gains”. The company also claims that the chipset would be perfect to use in Windows-based laptops and can perform equally when compared to an Intel Chipset. As per them, the chipset can provide exceptional performance, especially when compared to their 10th Gen Core i5 chip from Intel as well as Intel’s Lakefield chips. The second generation of Snapdragon chipset will also provide an improved battery life. The company has promised that a single charge could provide users with 25 hours of continuous use. However, the usage area could change as per the usage and preference. 

It would also support Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi 6, along with Qualcomm’s Aqstic audio technology and support for dual 4K external monitors. The chipset also offers X24 LTE modem and X55 5G modem options, but it will be a laptop manufacturer’s decision on what type of connectivity to provide. With so much to offer through the new chipset, it will be interesting to see how the chipset works in the real world and against various competitors. However, looking at the specs, the offering by Qualcomm could really give a big challenge to Intel and other chipset companies.
