AMD and Qualcomm will be joining hands to provide a boost to ultrathin notebooks, combining Ryzen mobile processors and Qualcomm LTE tech. The result will be always connected, high performance chips that boast gigabit LTE speeds.
“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,” said Kevin Lensing, corporate vice president and general manager, client computing, AMD.
“Qualcomm Technologies believes the Always Connected PC is the future of personal computing, and we are working with AMD to bring each company’s expertise to bear for these exciting products. Combining AMD processors with our cutting-edge LTE connectivity technology results in Always Connected Client Notebooks for consumers in a mobile-first future,” said Alex Katouzian, senior vice president and general manager, mobile, Qualcomm Technologies.
Thanks to its Vega and Zen architectures, AMD has recently been high in the news, including having boasting rights to the world’s fastest processor for ultrathin notebooks.
Qualcomm has very recently also announced other collaborative efforts enjoined over the last several months to deliver Windows 10 on Snapdragon. One such effort will be with ASUS, which has released news on their first Windows on Snapdragon device: the 2-in-1 convertible ASUS NovaGo, expected to be available early next year. Joining that fray will be a detachable HP ENVY x2 Windows on Snapdragon Mobile PC.
