Ro, 26 October 2023

The ARMs race has begun! With Apple's third-generation ARM-based Apple M3 silicon just around the corner, Qualcomm announced its competing solution, Snapdragon X Elite for Windows laptops. The SoC promises excellent performance, extreme efficiency and will arrive in the PC market by mid-2024.

Here's which PC manufacturers will pick up Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon X Elite chip

A number of the largest Windows PC manufacturers have now been confirmed to develop devices with the new chip. The list includes HP, Lenovo, Asus, Dell and Acer. Honor, Microsoft, Samsung and Xiaomi are also going to deliver Snapdragon X Elite-powered laptops to announce next year.

Software compatibility is the big issue Qualcomm needs to solve now. That's why the company revealed its software partners, working on ARM-compatible versions of their software, including BlackMagic Design with Davinci Resolve. There will be an adapted ARM-based Windows version just in time for the actual launch of the SoC in 2024.

Moreover, Davinci Resolve is promised to be 1.7x faster than standard 12-core CPUs with integrated GPU and up to 3x faster when running on the X Elite's NPU.
