2024 Edge AI and Vision Product of the Year Award Winner Showcase: Qualcomm (Edge AI Processors)

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X Elite Platform is the 2024 Edge AI and Vision Product of the Year Award Winner in the Edge AI Processors category. The Snapdragon X Elite is the first Snapdragon based on the new Qualcomm Oryon CPU architecture, which outperforms every other laptop CPU in its class. The Snapdragon X Elite’s heterogeneous AI Engine has a combined performance of greater than 70 TOPS across the NPU, CPU and GPU.

The Snapdragon X Elite includes a powerful integrated NPU capable of delivering up to 45 TOPS. In addition to raw performance, on-device AI benefits from a model’s accuracy and response time, as well as the speed for large language models, measured in tokens per second. The Snapdragon X Elite can run a 7 billion parameter Llama 2 model on-device at 30 tokens per second. The Oryon CPU subsystem outperforms the competitor’s high-end 14-core laptop chip in peak performance by 60%, and can match the competitor’s performance while using 65% less power. When compared to the leading performing x86 integrated GPU, Snapdragon X Elite delivers up to 80% faster performance, and can match the competitor’s highest performance with 80% less power consumption. Developers will have access to the latest AI SDKs too. Snapdragon X Elite features support for all of the leading AI frameworks, including TensorFlow, PyTorch, ONNX, Keras and more.

“On behalf of our entire Snapdragon engineering team, I would like to thank the Edge AI and Vision Alliance for awarding Snapdragon X Elite Platform as the 2024 Best Edge AI Processor Product of the Year. This groundbreaking platform ushers in a new era for Windows PCs, transforming them into next-generation AI powerhouses. Featuring the integrated Qualcomm Hexagon NPU, which delivers an unprecedented 45 trillion operations per second, the Snapdragon X Elite is the fastest NPU for laptops globally, enabling unparalleled on-device AI experiences.”
