The 5G that has been rumored before will land this year. All major manufacturers have put a lot of effort into the research and development of 5G products. At present, Huawei Samsung has launched its own 5G flagship machine, and other manufacturers will launch their own 5G products in the second half of this year. 5G mobile phones are coming, so 5G computers will be far away?

release Snapdragon 8cx 5G chip

Today, several media reports said that at the Taipei Computer Show this year, Lenovo will launch the world's first 5G Windows 10 PC. This news has caused widespread concern among netizens, not only because it is the world's first 5G computer, but also because it is equipped with Qualcomm Xiaolong 8cx 5G platform.

Some time ago, Qualcomm announced that it will launch the world's first commercial 5G PC platform equipped with Snapdragon 8cx 5G. It is important to know that Snapdragon 8cx is specially developed for computer equipment by Qualcomm. It is excellent in both performance and battery life. It also provides Gigabit LTE connection at speeds up to 2.5Gpbs.

Xiaolong 8cx was praised by users as an upgraded version of the Xiaolong 850 platform. It is known that it uses ARM architecture and has 8 next-generation Kryo 495 cores, 4 for performance big core and 4 for performance small core. Compared with the previous Snapdragon 855CPU Kryo485, the performance of the new generation Kryo 495 CPU doubled, and the maximum frequency of 8 cores reached 2.75GHz. It can be said that this is the fastest Kryo CPU in Qualcomm history.

In addition, the Opteron 8cx is equipped with an Adreno 680 GPU, which has 2x graphics processing power, 60% power efficiency, and supports 4K HDR external display. It is equipped with Quick Charge 4 and Aqstic audio technology to further optimize the sound quality and bring people in the voice. Come for a better experience.

Unfortunately, the GPU may not be able to support the play of large games, and the graphics display capability is relatively weak. Although it performs well in terms of battery life and standby, overall, the cost performance of ARM architecture chips is not very high. Therefore, Qualcomm has found a large PC manufacturer such as Lenovo to promote its business, hoping to gain more consumer groups.

As for the price that everyone cares most, Lenovo has not announced much news, but what is certain is that the price of this 5G notebook will not be too cheap. After all, the 5G mobile phone released by Huawei and Samsung and the 5G mobile phone price announced by China Unicom. All of them have exceeded 10,000 yuan. According to past experience, the price of laptops is often more expensive than that of mobile phones. Therefore, the price of Lenovo 5G notebooks is not "close to the people", so don't be surprised.

What's more, the current 5G technology is still immature, and the 5G products launched by major manufacturers are not launched for ordinary consumers. After the completion of other technical products, major manufacturers will launch civilian price version 5G products, expand application scenarios, and bring users Come to more and better service, so friends who want to try early are estimated to wait.
