Windows 10 on ARM "Always Connected PCs" may have been the stars of the show at Qualcomm's Snapdragon Technology Summit event, but a surprise appearance from AMD packed a smaller, but no less interesting announcement. Announcing a partnership with Qualcomm on stage, AMD revealed the two companies will be working together to produce always-connected PCs running on AMD processors and Qualcomm modems.
The announcement was pretty spartan, and details remain scarce, but that the two firms are working together to produce engineer always-connected laptops running on AMD processors is an interesting development. It also comes in a year in which AMD has seen a return to form, first with its new Ryzen line of CPUs, and then its new Vega graphics chips. It will be interesting to see what types of LTE notebooks emerge out of the partnership in the future.
Presumably, we'll learn more in the coming months. For now, you can check out AMD's portion of the presentation with AMD Corporate Vice President Kevin Lensing in the video below.
