AMD Makes a Surprise Appearance: Ryzen Mobile with Qualcomm LTE

Source Qualcomm

Along with our hardware partners HP and Asus, we showed the world the first full featured Always Connected PCs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset running Windows 10 and a new, optimized version of Office 365. The tech firms have jointly just about managed it by introducing the NovaGo.

The Asus NovaGo is expected to be available from early next year.

Following Myserson on stage to put meat on the bones of the announcement, was Asus' Jerry Shen, announcing the Asus NovaGo - an ultraportable 2-in-1 convertible laptop running Windows 10.

Besides an always-on PC and enormous battery life, one of the other benefits of a Snapdragon processor is that no cooling fan is required, so the Envy x2 will always be free of annoying fan noise.

Now that Microsoft and Qualcomm finally delivered Windows 10 on ARM, which they promised a year ago, we will be giving an insight view to the products that were launched in today's Qualcomm's event.

Contrary to what you might expect, the new Windows 10 ARM computers don't look hugely different from their Intel counterparts.


The HP ENVY x2 combines the best of Windows and with the smartphone freedom. Always connected to a battery supporting 30 days of standby and 22 hours of active use.

What this means is, multiplayer gaming on the go could soon become a reality for many, allowing you to play online games like Overwatch or Counter-Strike on your laptop when you're on the road over cellular data thanks to Qualcomm's modems. Both devices will ship with Windows 10S, but ASUS and HP are offering free upgrades to Windows 10 Pro before September 30, 2018.

Tomorrow, we will learn significantly more about Qualcomm's newest chip and its capabilities, so stay tuned.

An entry-level spec will get you 4GB of RAM and 64GB of UFS 2.0 storage. No UK prices were announced at the conference but a United States price of $599 for the model with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage and $799 for the model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB look very reasonable indeed.

The big unknowns at this point, other than whether or not HP's battery life claims hold up to our own lab tests, is how the Snapdragon chip will stack up performance- and price-wise compared with competing Intel-powered PCs.
