The new 9.7-inch iPad Pro is, in all fronts, the most impressive iPad ever built. It’s got a new A9X processor that Apple says is more powerful than most PCs, the camera of the iPhone 6S, which apart from offering better autofocus and low-light performance, can also shoot 4K video, and a new anti-reflective display with TrueTone technology that adapts color temperature based on its surroundings.

This is our unboxing of the legitimate offspring of the bigger iPad Pro and the iPad Air 2.

Computex 2018

Qualcomm launches faster Snapdragon 850 chipset for PCs

Makes devices smarter, faster, and more powerful

A device’s success hinges on the processor that it carries. For years, users have pored over spec sheets to find the best chipset that fulfills their daily needs. With a new processor, Qualcomm has that answer well in hand for PC users — the Qualcomm Snapdragon 850.

Only around half a year removed from the previous Snapdragon 845’s launch, Qualcomm is once again pushing the boundaries of mobile computing.

According to their presentation at this year’s Computex, the new Snapdragon 850 gives more of what the people want. Qualcomm’s research found that users sought for sizable batteries, blazing fast connectivity, and intelligent AI capabilities. Hence, Qualcomm incorporated all of these into the Snapdragon 850.

Designed for larger form factors, the Snapdragon 850 boasts of an always-on and always-connected philosophy for Windows PCs.

With the new Snapdragon 850, larger devices can enjoy 30 percent better system performance, up to 25 hours of continuous usage, up to 1.2Gbps of gigabit LTE speed, and up to three times better AI performance.

According to Qualcomm, these devices can go on and on for days while keeping quiet and cool.

Much like the phone-friendly Snapdragon 845, it will carry very similar modules like the fast Snapdragon X20 LTE modem and the Adreno 630 GPU. Essentially, the Snapdragon 850 is a modified version of the Snapdragon 845, optimized for PCs.

The first batch of Snapdragon 850 devices is expected to ship by the second half of the year. It will also ship devices with Windows 10.

Qualcomm signals that the new Snapdragon 850 is just the beginning. From late 2018 to 2019, the company hopes to help engineer the first devices with 5G LTE capabilities with the Snapdragon platform in hand.

Regardless of how the future will play out, it already looks like an always-on, always-connected world for us.
