Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. has debuted the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 compute platform — the second generation of the company’s entry-level platform for always on, always connected Windows PCs and Chromebooks with efficient performance and support for multi-day battery life.
During the Qualcomm Snapdragon Compute: Scaling the Mobile Compute Ecosystem virtual announcement, the company shared that devices powered by Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 will upgrade entry-level device experiences with enhanced camera and audio capabilities, integrated LTE connectivity, AI acceleration, enterprise-grade security features, and the long-lasting battery life that users deserve.
The addition of Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 to the compute platform portfolio will enable customers to scale device offerings and address user demands.
“Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 brings the leading innovations of our compute portfolio to the next generation of entry-tier and affordable devices. Laptops powered by this platform will redefine mobile computing for education users, first line workers, and everyday light consumers, enabling reliable and powerful devices that feature advanced AI, and support for multi-day battery life,” said Miguel Nunes, senior director, Product Management, Qualcomm Technologies. “We are excited to bring this next generation upgrade to our entry level platform, for the very best mobile PC experiences.”.
Devices powered by Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 are “Always on, Always connected,” so that with the press of a button, users will have access to their device and avoid waiting for notifications or applications to wake up — just like their favorite smartphone. Because of the platform’s cutting-edge efficiency, these experiences do not come at the cost of battery life. T
he ability to seamlessly switch between trusted Wi-Fi and cellular networks to keep connections highly secure is a top feature among competitive solutions. This capability also allows IT administrators to manage and secure remote devices for their school or enterprise.
Devices powered by Snapdragon compute technology are capable of staying in connected standby mode for weeks, rather than hours or days, because of the platform’s power-sipping efficiency.
The Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 compute platform delivers up to 10 percent faster system performance over most competing platforms, allowing for smoother browsing and an overall more responsive experience. The Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 compute platform also enables a pillar of Snapdragon compute technology: support for multi-day battery life.
Offering up to two times the battery life of most competing platforms, up to 19 or more hours of continuous use, Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 will enable end devices to keep users powered whether working on the go, learning from home, or enjoying their favorite entertainment. The platform’s processing power allows users to do more at once, enabling the speed and productivity users deserve.
The Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 compute platform allows users to stay entertained and informed while they are on the go with enhanced video, image, and voice capabilities.
The fifth-generation Qualcomm AI Engine can support intelligent applications on the device to enable the latest AI-accelerated features. With more use cases constantly developed for the on-device AI capabilities found on devices powered by Snapdragon compute platforms — from accelerated security applications to more accurate voice recognition — users may find that these experiences run faster and more efficiently than before.
The Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 compute platform also offers end-users peace of mind, with built-in protections designed to help keep their data safe. In addition to the benefits of using a reliable cellular network, this platform helps protect consumers and enterprise users from chip-to-cloud.
