The hardware scene isn’t what it used to be a couple of years back. Courtesy Moore’s law, PC chip makers won’t be able to shrink die sizes for long. Another trend that will take hold in the future will be ARM’s chips making it on PCs. Already, Apple’s A9X and A10X out perform Intel’s mobility processors. In fact, Cupertino’s been rumored for quite a while to introduce ARM based chips into the MacBook lineup. Today, one manufacturer has introduced a motherboard which features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820. Take a look.
The DragonBoard 820c Features The Snapdragon 820 And Will Power A Lot Of Electronics
Now, we’ve come across a motherboard that features the Snapdragon 820 and can be used for a variety of applications. The 820c’s potential predecessor, the DragonBoard 410c includes support for a variety of software platforms. These include Android, Linux and Windows 10 IoT core. If the 820c does succeed the 410c, as their names suggest, then Windows 10 IoT core will make it on the board as well.
Once the board is commercially available and starts to generate customers, Windows 10 IoT support will make it on board. Hook the 820c with Microsoft’s Azure, and you’ll have some very popular cloud based server hardware. Cloud computing is the future and Qualcomm’s hardware will provide a good bridge between efficient performance and lower sizes. Thoughts?
