Qualcomm has just released a new Snapdragon chip that is designed for low-cost Windows PCs and Chromebooks. The Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 is an ARM-based CPU that has increased its clock speed from 2.4 to 2.55 GHz.
Similar to the original Snapdragon 7c, the Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 offers integrated LTE connectivity, allowing users to connect to cellular networks while still receiving “multi-day battery life.” Lenovo will be the first to incorporate this technology into their PC, which will be available soon.
ARM has emerged as the next big thing in the technology world, with more chipmakers switching to it due to its high-end performance and power efficiency. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor and Apple’s all-powerful M1 processor are presently neck and neck. However, given the high cost of Apple’s laptops and gadgets, Qualcomm’s 7c Gen 2 chip appears to have the upper hand.
