AMD and Qualcomm are teaming up together to power more connectivity to higher-end laptops enabling gigabit connections speeds without relying on WiFi. According to an article on The Verge, both companies are working together to bring a new line of HP and Asus PCs powered by the Snapdragon 835.
With Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ LTE modem solutions, AMD and Qualcomm Technologies will help make it easy for the leading global PC companies to create premium computing platforms with Always Connected, Gigabit LTE speeds alongside the AMD Ryzen mobile processors’ blazingly fast performance, fluid graphics rendering, and optimal efficiency.
“Both AMD and Qualcomm have shown a consistent commitment to delivering products that redefine next-generation mobile user experiences,” said Kevin Lensing, corporate vice president and general manager, client computing, AMD. “OEMs around the world will now be able to combine the recently announced AMD Ryzen mobile processors with Qualcomm Technologies’ leading wireless solutions via their Snapdragon LTE modem family to achieve new levels of performance, connectivity and capability for ultrathin notebook PCs.”
The concept of the “Always Connected” PC is the future of personal computing and I myself am pretty excited to see laptops powered by AMD Ryzen Mobile processor with Radeon Vega graphics plus the ability so stay connected with an LTE modem. That would be a dream on-the-go productivity device for me. Let’s see what AMD brings us next year.
