The Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 powers the next gen of thin notebooks

The Snapdragon series isn’t just for smartphones. For a while now, Qualcomm’s ubiquitous series has staked its claim on more steadfast PC-based platforms. Continuing that trend, Qualcomm has announced the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 PC platform, a new system for thinner Chromebooks and notebooks.

Even in devices with a fan, the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 promises stellar performance, carrying the new standard built by Snapdragon’s new rebranding. The Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 is the world’s first 5nm Windows platform. With Qualcomm’s Kryo CPU, the platform can reportedly deliver 85 percent better performance over a competitive x86 rival. Its Adreno GPU can offer a 60 percent improvement over the platform’s predecessor.

Coupled with a durable battery, users can also use their devices for gaming at up to full HD and 120 frames per second. Devices can also support 4K HDR shooting and up to 4 cameras at a time. Armed with improved AI features, the platform supposedly delivers 29+ TOPS of AI acceleration. Finally, much like its smartphone counterpart, the system’s modem can support 5G connections of up to 10Gbps and Wi-Fi 6 connections.

To complement this beast of a platform, Qualcomm has also introduced the Snapdragon 7c+ Gen 3 platform for entry-level devices. Despite having a larger 6nm architecture, the platform still delivers 60 percent faster CPU performance and 70 percent faster GPU performance. The AI engine delivers 6.5 TOPS of performance. It can support 5G connections of up to 3.7Gbps and Wi-Fi 6 connections of up to 2.9Gbps.

Currently, neither of the two platforms have announced which devices will receive them first. However, Qualcomm expects the first devices to launch sometime in the first half of 2022.
