AMD Forges Alliance With Qualcomm For Always-Connected Ryzen Mobile Products

AMD announced that it is using Qualcomm's LTE modems to construct "Always Connected" 4G LTE PCs with AMD's Ryzen Mobile platform. "ASUS and HP have worked hand in hand with us to deliver on pushing the boundaries of what a PC can do, and we continue to work closely with Lenovo as they build their own Always Connected PC", Myerson writes.

Those machines, which arrive with a whopping 20-hour battery life, run the current Snapdragon 835 processor, but it would make sense for Qualcomm to release some super-powered versions with this newly announced platform. Just that the NovaGo is running a mobile processor does not put the device into isolation.

While this might seem like it wouldn't offer enough performance to power the full fat Windows 10 S operating system that comes baked in, the tablet performed admirably as we navigated the interface and used Microsoft's Office applications and browsing the web on Edge.

The HP ENVY x2 combines the best of Windows and with the smartphone freedom. The Envy has a similarly sized 12-inch display, though its 1,920 x 1,280 resolution isn't as sharp as the MacBook, and to be fair the Envy is more of a tablet convertible while the Macbook is a more traditional laptop. ASUS will offer the device for $599 ($799 for 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage) first in the US, UK, Italy, France, Germany, Mainland China and Taiwan, and is working with T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon to offer the NovaGo. "ASUS NovaGo reinvents the concept of laptop connectivity and productivity - it's the world's first announced laptop that is connected virtually anywhere, at any time, with the new Gigabit LTE network*; and lasts up to 22 hours on a single charge for "all-day" battery life". But we expect more information in the coming weeks.

The device is just 6.9mm thin and 1.54 pounds, it has 8GB of LPDDR4X PoP RAM and 256GB of onboard storage.

All the promises that are made by the two tech giants are an indication of great future for innovation in the tech industry.
