Qualcomm recently introduced Snapdragon X Elite. The revolutionary processor is described as “the most powerful, intelligent, and efficient processor for Windows in its class.” The platform represents a new era of premium computing delivering incredible user experiences:
The industry has reached a critical inflection point, where laptops need to meet increased productivity and creativity demands while lessening cognitive strain with the support of generative AI user experiences.
Snapdragon X Elite is a “breakthrough 4nm chip” delivers unprecedented performance and intelligence, at extremely low power:
Snapdragon X Elite is the first central processing unit core on ARM-compatible architecture to hit over 4.0Ghz. With support for advanced camera, lossless audio, robust connectivity with 5G and Wi-Fi 7, up to multi-day battery life and enterprise-grade security, Snapdragon X Elite will be at the center of modern AI PCs.
The integrated Qualcomm Hexagon neural processor unit (NPU) generates an astounding 45 TOPS (Trillions of Operations Per Second), and easily conquers advanced video conferencing, automatic image filters, privacy configurations and generative AI functionality.
Snapdragon X Elite can process 7 billion parameter LLMs, like Llama 2, at 30 tokens per second to deliver lightning-fast AI assistant responses to your queries and low-latency, advanced multitasking experiences. The processor can even tackle 13 billion parameters on-device, without using cloud resources.
Snapdragon X Elite’s mobile industry processor interface (MIPI) cameras includes advanced image signal processing capabilities for improved image and video quality.
Other significant Snapdragon X Elite features include advanced AI processing for on-device experiences like facial recognition and adaptive dimming, MIPI power-efficiency for long video conferences and multiple Teams meetings, Snapdragon Sound Technology designed for lossless and spatial audio with low latency, perfect clarity, space and depth.
