Qualcomm has announced that its next-generation mobile processor, the Snapdragon 8cx, will also be available in PCs by late 2023. The new processor is designed for Windows 10 devices and will offer superior performance and battery life over current-generation processors.
Qualcomm announced plans to build next-generation Arm-based System on Chips (SoCs)
Qualcomm has announced plans to build next-generation Arm-based System on Chips (SoCs), designed to rival Apple's M-series chips. The chips are "designed to set the performance benchmark for Windows PCs" and are being developed by the Nuvia team, a subsidiary of Qualcomm that was acquired in 2018. Qualcomm said that it will directly compete with Apple's M-series chips, which are currently used in the iPhone and iPad. During the company's latest earnings call earlier this week, Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf said that the new chips will be available in PCs by late 2023.
First Nuvia-designed processor
Nuvia, an AI and machine learning startup, announced that its first processor design will be available in PCs by late 2023. This is slightly later than the original 2023 timeframe set out by Qualcomm last year. In a statement, Amon added that the first Nuvia-designed processor will be ""going after the performance tier | The timing seems to indicate a slight delay compared to the original 2023 timeframe set out by Qualcomm last year | The company previously said that sample Nuvia chips would be available to device manufacturers by August 2022, but now that expectation has been broadened to the second half of 2022
Qualcomm acquired Nuvia, a chip startup company founded by ex-Apple chip designers
Qualcomm announced in January 2021 that it had acquired Nuvia, a chip startup company founded by ex-Apple chip designers. The former Apple engineers wanted to create Arm-based SoCs specifically for servers and target the always-connected PC (ACPC) market with a chip that could compete with the M1. By late 2023, Apple is expected to be well into its M2 series of chips. The company may have even introduced the first M3 chips by the time the first Nuvia chips come to market.
Qualcomm, the largest mobile phone chipmaker, announced plans to build next-generation Arm-based System on Chips (SoCs) that will be available in personal computers by late 2023. The first such Nuvia-designed processor will sport up to eight cores and will be made using a 10-nanometer process. Qualcomm acquired Nuvia in 2019, a chip startup company founded by ex-Apple chip designers.
