Σε μια διαφορετική αγορά από εκείνη που την έχουμε συνηθίσει θέλει να μπει η Qualcomm, φέρνοντας τον ανταγωνιστή του Apple M1. To γεγονός ότι η Qualcomm θέλει να μπει με αξιώσεις στην αγορά των laptops, αλλάζει τους όρους του ανταγωνισμού.
Qualcomm's new CEO, Cristiano Amon, says the company will have no problem producing laptop chips to compete directly with Apple's M1—mainly because Qualcomm now employs some of the key minds behind Apple's highly publicized breakthrough.

This SoC would include a 5G modem as well as a CPU. Explaining this strategy, Amon said:
We needed to have the leading performance for a battery-powered device. If Arm, which we’ve had a relationship with for years, eventually develops a CPU that’s better than what we can build ourselves, then we always have the option to license from Arm.
This year, Qualcomm purchased startup Nuvia for $1.4 billion. Nuvia was founded by former Apple employees who had worked on the Apple Silicon transition in the lead up to the launch of the M1.
