Snapdragon 8cx built on a 7-nm process – the best in the computing space, according to the company.
At its summit, Qualcomm showed 8cx platform for laptops with Windows 10, that is, Always Connected PC.
Earlier rumors called the Snapdragon 1000 chip, but Qualcomm decided to call the new product is not like normal processors for smartphones, writes the online edition of the Chronicle.info with reference to the Correspondent.

Like the recently introduced 855 Snapdragon, Snapdragon 8cx built on a 7-nm process – the best in the computing space, according to the company. This chip should provide a much better power and possibly a longer battery life. 8cx also designed for fanless laptops to store these devices are quite thin and light.
8cx inside a completely new graphics processor Adreno 680 Extreme that, says Qualcomm, is twice faster than the graphics processor Adreno in the Snapdragon 850, and 3.5 times faster than the first PC using the Snapdragon chipset 835. In addition, Adreno 680 should be 60% more energy efficient than a graphics chip 850.
Application compatibility is also improved, at least partly because the developers made more efforts to translation of the software under similar laptops.
