Snapdragon X platforms can turn the Windows PC market upside down

Laptops with SoC Snapdragon X and AI-functions of Windows 11 are coming to the market in just two days, which, by the way, at the start  even laptops with the latest processors will not receive AMD and Intel. However, the Snapdragon X platforms themselves are actually at risk due to the Qualcomm and Arm lawsuit.

As reported by Reuters, major companies including Microsoft, Acer and Asus have met with Qualcomm CEO Christian Amon. The main discussion was about the lawsuit between Arm and Qualcomm, which has been going on for more than two years. If Arm wins the case, there could be huge problems for Qualcomm's processors in the PC market.

In 2022, Arm sued Qualcomm for breaching its chip licensing agreement after Qualcomm acquired Nuvia, a licensing startup chips for professional products. Qualcomm used Nuvia technologies to develop new processors for PCs. Arm believes that this violates the agreement with Qualcomm and the parties should renegotiate revised terms. Qualcomm says their deal already covers the licensing of processors for laptops. Arm's victory in court could potentially even lead to a ban on sales of the Snapdragon X, which would be a very strong blow to the market.
