Qualcomm: Here’s when Qualcomm’s response to Apple’s M1 processor will arrive


Qualcomm’s processors are found on all smartphones, but when it comes to laptops, the chip giant isn’t quite as dominant. However, a new report has revealed that Qualcomm will soon launch its high-end laptop processor. In an interview with Tom’s Hardware, Qualcomm CEO Christian Amron revealed that its high-end laptop processors will arrive in 2023. Earlier, Qualcomm had suggested that the processors could launch in August 2022, but that seems to have been delayed.
Amron, in the company’s quarterly earnings call, said progress was being made on Arm processors and Nuvia-powered Windows laptops could reach customers by the end of 2023.
The processor will compete AppleM1 processors found on Mac devices. Last year, in November, Qualcomm officially announced its plans for Arm-based chipsets. The company said at the time that the processors would “set the performance benchmark for Windows PCs.”
The processors, according to reports, are being developed by Nuvia, a chip startup founded by former Apple chip designers, who were part of the development team for the A-series processors.
Apple’s M1 processors apparently performed well. The first M1 processor arrived in November 2020 and since then Apple has introduced faster and better variants of it. M1 processors now power all Mac computers — Macbook ProMacBook Air, iMac, Mac mini — and is also present on the iPad Air as well as the iPad Pro.
Rumors are swirling about Apple launching the next generation of M-series processors. Qualcomm’s Nuvia based processors seem to be a bit delayed and it will be interesting to see how the processors fare as Apple is still expected to improve its M series of processors. Currently, Windows laptops are mostly powered by Intel and AMD processors. Both Intel and AMD have been working to make significant improvements to their processors after the arrival of Apple’s M series of processors.
