Qualcomm’s processors are available across smartphones, but the chip giant isn’t as dominant in laptops. However, a new report has revealed that Qualcomm It will soon launch its high-end processor for laptops. In an interview with Tom Hardware, Qualcomm CEO Christian Amaron revealed that its high-end processors for laptops will arrive in 2023. Earlier, Qualcomm suggested that the processors could launch sometime in August 2022, but this seems to have been delayed.
In the company’s quarterly earnings call, Amron said that Arm processors and Nuvia-powered Windows laptops could reach customers by the end of 2023.
The processor will be the competitor ApplesIts M1 processor which is available across Mac devices. In November last year, Qualcomm officially announced its plans for an arm-based chipset. The company then said that the processors would “set a performance benchmark for Windows PCs”.
The processors, according to the report, are being developed by Nuvia, a chip startup founded by former Apple chip designers who were part of the team that developed the A-series processors.
Apple’s M1 processors seem to work quite well. The first M1 processor arrived in November 2020, and since then Apple has introduced faster and better versions. The M1 processor now powers every Mac computer – Ale nMacBook Air, iMac, Mac mini – and iPad Air, as well as the iPad Pro.
Apple is rumored to be launching the next generation processor of the M-series. Qualcomm’s Nuvia-based processors seem to be somewhat delayed, and it will be interesting to see how Apple hires processors that are expected to further improve its M-Series processors. Currently, Windows laptops are primarily powered by Intel and AMD processors. With the advent of Apple’s M-Series processors, both Intel and AMD are working to make significant improvements to its processors.
