Qualcomm unveils Snapdragon 850 for Windows platform

Qualcomm unveils Snapdragon 850 for Windows platform
Qualcomm has been in news in recent times for building specialized chips for VR headsets and the Internet of Things apart from the wearable products and smartphone focused devices. The company has now unveiled the Snapdragon 850, a processor specially designed for the Windows devices. Qualcomm made the important announcement at the Computex 2018.

The new chip is expected to power the new generation of Windows on the Snapdragon devices that might be launched during the holiday season. South Korean giant Samsung announced that it will be making a 2 in 1 PC that will be powered by the newly launched Snapdragon 850. There might be questions regarding how the chip for the PC is different from the one on the phone. The answer is that there is not much difference.

Now that the Snapdragon 850 is meant to be used on devices which are bigger than the a smartphone including convertibles and laptops, it has the ability to run on higher clock speed without the problem of over-heating. The extra space available on the bigger devices allows better dissipation and all this happens due to the faster 2.96Ghz clock speed. The Snapdragon 850 is 30 percent faster than the 835 chip. The company has also optimized the new chip’s frequencies and software for PCs however the 10nm design of the processor is similar to the 835 chip.

But still the above improvements result in a noticeable quicker performance when compared to the Snapdragon 835 powered devices. A few tests found that the performance and multi-tasking was surprisingly smoother and responsive. The new chip can support HDR displays with 4K capture through the onboard camera. The presence of the new chip on a device will allow it to last up to 25 hours depending on the use. With the latest development, the Snapdragon remains a good and exciting platform for the users of high octane devices.

The 2020 Lincoln Aviator gives wing to Ford’s luxury-SUV ambitions, with sensational style and Lincoln’s first plug-in hybrid drivetrain.

Asus ZenBook 14 (UX433) Review

Asus has revamped the ZenBook line with a whole new design, including a lighter build, redesigned hinge, and a light-up numpad built right into the touch pad
Should I Buy The Asus ZenBook 14 UX433?
The ZenBook 14 is a very promising shakeup to the Asus laptop line. It’s smaller, lighter, and better looking than any of the previous models, without having to sacrifice either ports or powers. There aren't many laptops around that can offer you a 14in display in a body this compact while still giving you USB-A and HDMI ports, not to mention a Core i7 processor.
Unless you're an Excel addict you can probably safely ignore the glowing numpad - it's a fun gimmick, but most of us will probably forget it's even there, and without tactile feedback it's hardly a proper replacement for the keys. Still, this is a strong enough laptop elsewhere that it doesn't need that gimmick to get by, and there's plenty to recommend it otherwise.

2019 Mitsubishi Mirage Review

The 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage challenges the assumption that there are no bad new cars anymore.
The 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage is a subcompact car that prioritizes high fuel economy, a good factory warranty, and a low base price over comfort.
It’s offered in hatchback and G4 sedan bodies, and is available in base ES, SE, and GT trims. We’ve given the Mirage 3.3 out of 10, one of our lowest ratings for any new car.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Movie Review

Nth Time's a Charm

If you groaned at the thought of another "Spider-Man" movie, fear not because you weren't alone. How many times can one character be rebooted or reimagined before it becomes insufferable? Apparently we aren't there yet, because "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" is a welcome breath of fresh air.
Everyone's history with the movies about our favorite neighborhood webslinger differs. Sam Raimi's trilogy has its diehard fans (despite only producing one truly great film) and the Andrew Garfield-led "The Amazing Spider-Man" movies were cut short when they didn't meet expectations (the first one is good!). Last year, Jon Watts' "Spider-Man: Homecoming" found Tom Holland in the title role, providing a fun, well-rounded look at the character, which had been missing for a while.
