Snapdragon 1000 will have this many transistors to run on PCs

Microsoft’s and Qualcomm’s campaign to get Windows 10 running on ARM-based Snapdragon chips has mostly fallen flat on its face. While the idea of power efficient, always on, and always connected PCs is undoubtedly tempting, the execution was sorely lacking, especially when it came to banking on last year’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 835.

Microsoft Edge warns Windows 10 users to avoid Chrome and Firefox

Microsoft Edge warns Windows 10 users to avoid Chrome and Firefox

For years now, Microsoft has been fighting what really feels like a losing battle against Google and Mozilla, two big players in the internet browser space. Though Microsoft Edge replaced the oft-disparaged Internet Explorer in Windows 10 - and, in fairness, makes its share of improvements - a lot of people out there still prefer to stick with Chrome or Firefox.

If you think you haven’t heard anything about AMD’s Athlon brand in a long while, you’re probably not alone.
