Qualcomm gears up to challenge Intel, AMD and Nvidia

Qualcomm, known for its Snapdragon ARM SoC’s, claims that the company is “very well positioned to be the preferred platform for PCs, in the inevitable transition to ARM.” The comments came during the company’s 2021 investor day presentation. It’s a very big statement. 

Snapdragon System-on-Chips (SoCs) are often found in high performance mobile devices thanks to their very good performance per watt, a trait that’s common to ARM devices in general, but they don’t have the raw performance to compete with established CPUs from Intel and AMD. That could be changing if new ARM cores from Nuvia, a recently acquired division of Qualcomm, can deliver performance that you’d expect from a PC with a good spec or a high-performance gaming laptop.
