The Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 chipset in the 7nm process aims to increase the performance of entry-level laptops by 5-10 percent and offers up to 19 hours of use.
Although Apple’s transition to ARM-based Apple Silicon chips has had great repercussions, Qualcomm has been using ARM architecture on desktop platforms for a long time. It cannot be said that it has reached a very competitive level, but the company continues to develop.
What will Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 offer?
The Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 chip, introduced this week, will accelerate entry-level notebook models because there is some performance increase over the first generation. The chip, designed in the 8nm process, also contains two Cortex-A76 and 6 Cortex-A55-based Kryo 468 cores, but the speed has increased by around 5 percent.
It is stated that the chip, which is an integrated Snapdragon X15 modem, can offer a lifespan of up to 19 hours. In the summer, it has been announced that some companies, including Lenovo, will release a Snapdragon 7c Gen 2-based laptop.
Qualcomm’s ARM-based processors have been adopted by many companies, but the reflection of this on the market is very low. Especially the inadequacies on the Windows driver and application side make manufacturers nervous. While the Snapdragon 8c series has shifted a little more to standard laptops, the 7c has not been able to get out of the Chromebook models.
