Qualcomm Technologies has teamed up with Lenovo to launch 5G PC, claimed to be “the world’s first 7nm platform purpose-built for PCs that offers 5G connectivity.” The announcement was made at the Computex show in Taiwan.
The 5G PC, code-named Project Limitless, is based on the Snapdragon 8cx processor Qualcomm unveiled in December 2018. Designed to support both 5G and 4G connections, the Snapdragon 8cx 5G compute platform is said to deliver extreme performance, extreme battery life and extreme 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,” Katouzian added.
The platform combines the Qualcomm Adreno 680 GPU with the Qualcomm Kryo 495 CPU. Also, its battery can last for several days per charge.
Qualcomm is yet to disclose Project Limitless’ release date as well as pricing details.
