Qualcomm brings smartphone tech to PCs with Always On, Always Connected PC

These days, the biggest issues with the modern day laptops are probably the heating problem and the battery life. It’s been statistically seen that the actual battery life is usually half of what the manufacturers promise. Qualcomm Technologies, after revolutionizing the mobile technology, are now interested in taking the challenge of solving these issues.


They are planning to introduce the smartphone technology to the PC. Their target is to design the Always On Always Connected PC devices. These devices will obviously be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon Mobile PC Platform. By allowing OEMs they want to provide beyond all-day battery life with up to 20+ hours of continuous video playback. These will be instant on, always on, and always connected devices. With four to five times longer battery life in connected standby mode, with apps, emails data getting synced and up-to-date in the background, it is quite similar to that of the smartphones. The platform is much more power-efficient and at the same time dissipates very little heat.

Recently, the devices powered by the Snapdragon platform were subjected to a test, against devices powered by traditional platforms. The results were filmed, the outcomes give us the demo on how to establish the promise of delivering better real-world user benefits.


The Snapdragon-powered Mobile PC platforms can be turned on instantly, are always on, and can always be kept connected to the Internet through a low-power mode called connected standby while allowing the notifications & necessary syncs, just like smartphones. The Qualcomm mobile PC devices are designed to be sleek and thin, capable of handling workloads for up to 20+ hours without compromising the performance. The low-powered solution is specially engineered not to generate much heat & hence the devices will not be requiring any cooling system.

From the performance graphs, it can easily be seen how, unlike the Qualcomm solution, the traditional platform’s heat output jumps dramatically within minutes of activity. The Qualcomm solution can also be seen maintaining a consistent level of performance over a period of time.

HP, Lenovo, and ASUS will soon be launching the Always On, Always Connected PCs, globally.
