Leo Says Ep.74: Qualcomm Snapdragon X Elite!

Here at KitGuru we get properly excited as Computex looms on the horizon but this year we are extra-special excited as 2024 is the year we will see a new company enter the chip market to take on AMD and Intel. We are talking about Qualcomm and their Snapdragon X Elite, and the reason this is particularly exciting is that these Qualcomm laptops will run Windows on their Arm architecture.

In our video we detail the claims made by Qualcomm but of  course we are in no position to check their homework as we have not yet seen these laptops for ourselves.

Even so, the raw statistics paint a pretty picture with 12 cores fabricated on TSMC 4nm, a maximum speed of 3.8GHz and two cores boosting to 4.3GHz along with a healthy slab of LPDDR5x memory, which sounds like a fine combination.

The natural thought is that both AMD and Intel will be deeply concerned by Qualcomm's new chip and in the short term we are sure that will be true. In our video we look a few years into the future and check out the moves that Intel is making to move chip manufacturing away from Asia and towards Europe and in particular to the USA. We can easily imagine a future where Intel will make chips for AMD, Apple, Nvidia and Qualcomm but that won't happen for some while.

In the meantime our immediate interest is the launch of Qualcomm Snapdragon Elite X which we expect at Computex in three months time.

Discuss on our Facebook page HERE.

KitGuru says: Provided Qualcomm can make Windows 11 run properly on Arm, we can hope for great things from Snapdragon X Elite.
