Powerful performance

The Snapdragon 8cx compute platform combines power with battery efficiency while delivering immersive user experiences. ACPCs built with the Snapdragon 8cx feature our fastest CPU yet, the Qualcomm® Kryo™ 495 CPU, plus the Qualcomm® Adreno™ 680 GPU for crystal-clear graphics.

Multi-day battery life

The Snapdragon 8cx compute platform efficiently distributes workloads across the entire system, designed to support extraordinary battery life—up to multiple days on a single charge. That’s up to twice as long as most typical laptops offer, so your ACPC laptop keeps you connected with the ultimate in power efficiency.

Superior connectivity

Build ACPCs with our Snapdragon 8cx compute platform for lightning-fast connectivity. Our Snapdragon X24 4G and Snapdragon X55 5G modems enable peak download speeds ranging from 2Gbps (X24) to 7Gbps (X55) without a Wi-Fi connection or hotspot.

Experience the most extreme Snapdragon yet.

The Snapdragon 8cx compute platform is the world’s first 7nm platform, designed to unleash transformative 5G experiences. The Snapdragon 8cx delivers a 2x performance improvement and 60% greater power efficiency than the previous generation for ACPCs that are fast and efficient, thanks to the Adreno 680 Extreme GPU. For immersive entertainment, brilliant graphics, and crisp audio, the Snapdragon 8cx features the Kryo 495 CPU and Qualcomm Aqstic™ audio technology. Build powerful, responsive ACPCs with the Snapdragon 8cx compute platform.
