Qualcomm will get help from former Apple employees
Brazilian Cristiano Amon said Qualcomm’s goal is to take the lead in computer CPU performance. To get there, the company will get help from former Apple employees.we’re talking about companies cloudAcquired by Qualcomm in 2021.
Nuvia was founded in 2019 by former Apple executives.Among them, the most prominent names are Gerald WilliamsLed the development team for the A-line processor, which was previously featured on the iPhone and iPad.Other executives also have experience with other well-known companies, such as Google and arm.
Qualcomm to buy Nuvia for $1.4 billion in 2019! Given the experience and background of its founders and executives, that’s a high value, but also a reasonable one. With this acquisition, Qualcomm can count on someone who came up with the Apple M1 processor.
Focus on PC market growth
Nuvia’s goal is to focus on developing high-performance CPUs and GPUs. Not to mention advances in neural processing, which are very useful for AI capabilities. But all of this should not be available until 2023.
Contrary to what many people think, developing a processor is an expensive and time-consuming process that involves a lot of research and testing. This is even more true at the level of miniaturization of corporate jobs today.
However, it looks like Cristiano Amon has a lot of confidence in the Nuvia team. After all, they lead the team of engineers that develop the processors for the iPhone and iPad.

I’ll admit, it’s very interesting to see other companies using ARM-based chips get into the desktop market.We basically just Intel and My goodness. As ARM chips enter the desktop PC arena, we will be able to see powerful laptops that don’t consume much power.
Let’s wait for the scene in the next chapter.
