Until now the penetration of laptops with ARM processors are simply being a failure, the price of output and the limited compatibility of the Windows 10 system based on emulation is not attractive for users who see in the Intel or AMD processors a classic alternative much more trustworthy. Now it seems that we already have the first leak of the new laptops installing the recent Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor that we are seeing in the high-end mobile phones of the best brands.
Thanks to a leak in the Geekbench tests we could see what are the increase in performance improvement of a new laptop from Lenovo based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC compared to a previous model that mounts a Snapdragon 835. As we can see the performance increase is mainly reflected in the monocore power where we have an increase of 40%, on the other hand the multitasking performance does not have such a noticeable increase.
Another interesting comparison is to face this model based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor against a low-end Lenovo laptop with an Intel Celeron N4200 processor that sells for about $220, a price much lower than it will have that model with Qualcomm processor. As we see the difference in performance is minimal and without counting that we will avoid all compatibility problems and we have support for 64bit apps something that is still expected in Windows 10 ARM systems that only support compiled apps for 32bit. We will see how this second generation of Windows ARM laptops works but for now they have little to contribute to classic models, especially if we compare them by price.
