Thanks to an overclocked Snapdragon 845 SoC

Asus NovaGo with Snapdragon 835 - it's a hands on review
Hi my name is Fudo and I am an X86 addict. For most of my life I have been using X86 for productivity and I have flirted with Intel, AMD and even VIA (all caps). Now, the new player in town, Qualcomm, offers an ARM instruction, Snapdragon 835 based PC that runs Windows 10.
