Qualcomm teases a dual-screen Windows 10 device in Snapdragon 8cx launch video

Dual screen device

Dual-screen computing devices are becoming nearer to the
reality these days. We already know quite a lot about
Microsoft’s Andromeda and
another device called ‘Centaurus’ has come up in recent
leaks. The OEMs of Microsoft are also interested in the
dual-screen form factor of PC.

At the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon Tech Summit in Maui, Qualcomm
has announced Snapdragon 8cx for ‘Always Connected PCs’. Their
previous ARM-based PC processors are just the upgraded versions
of flagship smartphone processors. This time they have made
this 8cx chipset with 7-nanometre fabrication process from the
ground up especially for PCs.

According to the chip-maker 8cx is their ‘most extreme’ product
till date. It has Kryo 495 processing cores, Adreno 680 GPU,
multi-gigabit LTE with Snapdragon X24 modem, quick charge 4+,
up to 25 hours of battery life and most importantly it supports
two 4K HDR monitors.

In the promotional video of Snapdragon 8cx, Qualcomm has shown
a glimpse of dual-screen PC running Windows 10’s tablet mode.
It appears to be a mockup but it does suggest that Qualcomm is
also interested in dual-screen devices concept.

Microsoft is said to be working Windows Core OS which
is a lightweight and modern version of Windows 10 for Always
Connected PCs with native ARM support and better tablet
experience.

Qualcomm has mentioned that this chipset can deliver 2X faster
graphical performance with Adreno 680 GPU and it is also 60%
more efficient than their previous ARM-based PC processor
Snapdragon 850.

The processor has 2X more transistors, 2X more memory
bandwidth, total 10mb of L2 and L3 cache. Latest DirectX 12
support is also added. This is going to deliver much optimised
and smooth performance on all form factors including
dual-screen monitors. The graphics intensive productivity tasks
will be handled in a much better way.

Another big challenge for the dual-screen device is battery
life as it would be running two screens at the same time. But
this 7nm processor with 7W TDP, Kryo 495 processing cores and
Adreno 680 GPU is very much energy efficient. The new heat
dissipation system will keep the system cooler than previous
models and Qualcomm’s solution might address the battery
concerns as well.
