Qualcomm official: Snapdragon 7c, 8c, 8cx 5G, etc. all support Win11 operating system

Microsoft recently released the Windows 11 operating system, which not only brings a brand-new operation interface, but also runs Android applications natively.

At the same time, major hardware manufacturers have also begun to promote Windows 11. For example, Qualcomm China’s official Weibo said today that its Snapdragon 7c, 8c, and the second-generation 8cx (8cx Gen2, also known as 8cx 5G) platforms have all supported the Windows 11 operating system.

Compared with the x86 architecture chip, the Qualcomm Snapdragon computing platform can not only rely on the characteristics of low power consumption, so that related products can achieve fanless, zero-noise operation and longer standby performance. And with the built-in modem, it can bring an always-on and always-connected networking experience.

In addition, these chips are based on the ARM architecture and can natively support Android applications. And Windows 11 can download and run these applications through the application market and other channels.

Through the combination of the two, it can not only bring a better user experience to users, but also solve the lack of ecology of Windows for ARM to a certain extent.

It is worth mentioning that a chip named SC8280 appeared in the GeekBench database some time ago. It has an eight-core CPU with a main frequency of 2.7GHz, which should be the Snapdragon 8cx Gen3, as expected. And its single-core score close to 1,000 points, and multi-core scores close to 5,000 points. Compared with the current 8cx 5G, it has a greater improvement and should have better performance.
