World's first 5G PC unveiled by Qualcomm & Lenovo – powered by Snapdragon
27 May 2019
Under the name “Project Limitless”, the collaboration ushers in a new era of computing with 5G always on, always connected PCs, built on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8cx 5G compute platform.
Qualcomm, in conjunction with Lenovo, has announced the world’s first 5G PC at COMPUTEX, one of the world's leading global ICT & IoT shows, in Taipei, Taiwan. Project Limitless encompasses a strong technology collaboration between Qualcomm Technologies, a leader in 5G connectivity, and Lenovo, a leader in PCs, to bring innovation to the always on, always connected PC ecosystem. Project Limitless is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx 5G compute platform – the world’s first 7nm platform, purpose-built for PCs offering 5G connectivity.
“Our collaboration with Lenovo will deliver transformative PC user experiences for both consumers and enterprises, thanks to the platform’s performance and power efficiency, combined with the high speed, low-latency connectivity made possible by 5G,” said Alex Katouzian, Senior Vice President & General Manager, Mobile Business Unit, Qualcomm Technologies. “Bandwidth-intensive tasks that involve downloading and uploading large files over a wireless connection can be exponentially faster, making remote storage feel as seamless as local storage. This will change the way users create, collaborate and communicate with their computing devices.”
The Snapdragon 8cx 5G compute platform is the most extreme Snapdragon platform ever designed, with extreme performance, extreme battery life and extreme connectivity. It supports immersive user experiences, multi-gigabit LTE, multi-day battery life, and enterprise applications and security. The platform features the Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 5G modem, a single-chip multi-mode solution which, along with Qualcomm Technologies' RF Front-End, allows OEMs to bring 5G connectivity to new and innovative PC form factors.
“At Lenovo, we don’t innovate for the sake of technology alone. Everything we do is about improving people’s experience,” said Johnson Jia, Senior Vice President & General Manager, Consumer Business of Intelligent Devices Group, Lenovo. “With real 5G in a PC, it’s all about satisfying users’ need for speed: faster file transfers and streaming in 4K, 8K and even AR/VR; faster and higher quality video chats on-the-go; even faster screen refreshes for mobile gaming. When we say limitless connectivity, we mean it – 5G PC users the world-over will save time, stay productive, or get online entertainment from nearly anywhere, at any time.”
The Snapdragon 8cx 5G platform includes the Snapdragon X55 5G modem, which integrates Category 22 LTE, achieving peak download speeds of up to 2.5 Gbps, for the fastest 4G connectivity available today. The platform is compatible with virtually any band used by global operators in any region, so users can rely on their always on, always connected PC to stay connected almost anywhere in the world.
The 5G-enabled Project Limitless collaboration with Lenovo is the latest example of how Qualcomm invents breakthrough technologies that transform how the world connects, computes, and communicates. Consumers can expect more to come from Lenovo and Qualcomm in early 2020.
