Qualcomm has just unveiled its latest SoC called the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G. This new processor is targeted towards 2-in-1 notebooks, with the aim of making them more thin, light and better connected. The announcement of Qualcomm’s new SoC means that the company is currently in competition with the likes of Intel and AMD in the laptop processor market.

As its name implies, Qualcomm’s newest processor is the second generation SoC within the Snapdragon 8cx family. The Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G is based off of the Qualcomm Cyro 495 CPU, which has been updated to enable several new features; these include: support for up to two 4K monitors at 60fps (through USB-C) or support for one 4K display with HDR enabled.

Other notable features include: improved audio and visual capabilities, better webcam support (up to 4K HDR), and support for ‘Microsoft Secured Core PC’ and ‘Windows Hypervisor’—both of which are offered to increase the security of the notebooks.

At the time of writing, Qualcomm has stated that it will be partnering with Acer and HP to bring in notebooks powered by the new Qualcomm SoC. Other devices fitted with the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G are expected to be announced in late 2020.
