Windows on ARMWhile the Snapdragon 845 has only just become the mainstay high-end mobile chip, Qualcomm is already looking ahead. The newly introduced Snapdragon 850 is the result of Qualcomm’s collaboration with Samsung and Microsoft, built to power Windows on ARM PCs.

Despite its laboriously long title, Qualcomm claims that the ‘Snapdragon 850 Mobile Platform for Always-Connected Windows 10 PCs’ offers a 30 percent performance increase when compared with its previous Snapdragon 835, which was seen in ARM-powered laptops from HP, ASUS, Lenovo and more.

Utilising the platform’s integrated Snapdragon X20 LTE modem, the Snapdragon 850 delivers at least 1.2 gigabits per second, with up to 25 hours of continuous usage or multi-day battery life under normal usage conditions.
