Qualcomm and Lenovo Unveil First 5G PC Powered By The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx 5G Compute Platform
Qualcomm Technologies, in conjunction with Lenovo, unveiled the world’s first 5G PC2 today at its COMPUTEX Press Conference.
Project Limitless is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx 5G compute platform and is the first 7nm platform purpose-built for PCs that offers 5G connectivity.
“Our collaboration with Lenovo will deliver transformative PC user experiences for both consumers and the enterprise thanks to the platform’s performance and power efficiency, combined with the high speed, low-latency connectivity made possible by 5G,” said Alex Katouzian, senior vice president and general manager, mobile business unit, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “Bandwidth-intensive tasks that involve downloading and uploading large files over a wireless connection can be exponentially faster, "making remote storage feel as seamless as local storage", this will change the way users create, collaborate and communicate with their computing devices.”
The Snapdragon 8cx 5G compute platform is the most extreme Snapdragon platform ever designed, with extreme performance, extreme battery life and extreme connectivity. It supports multi-gigabit LTE, multi-day battery life, and enterprise applications and security. The platform features the Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 5G modem, a single-chip multi-mode solution which along with Qualcomm Technologies' RF Front-End, allows OEMs to bring 5G connectivity to new PC form factors.
The Snapdragon 8cx 5G platform includes the Snapdragon X55 5G modem, which integrates Category 22 LTE, achieving peak download speeds of up to 2.5 Gbps, for the fastest 4G connectivity available today. The platform is compatible with virtually any band used by global operators in any region, so users can rely on their Always On, Always Connected PC to stay connected almost anywhere in the world.
Consumers can expect more to come from Lenovo and Qualcomm in early 2020.
