Qualcomm acquires NUVIA, faster processors are coming!

Qualcomm announced the acquisition of startup NUVIA. The deal is valued at $ 1,4 billion, Qualcomm said. The acquisition could have a major impact on Qualcomm's future as it could become more competitive in the mobile, PC and server markets.

NUVIA has been working to design its own custom high-performance CPU cores for servers based on the ARM architecture, so the acquisition could help Qualcomm in the server market.

Qualcomm points to the impending launch of 5G as one of the biggest reasons for the acquisition. "NUVIA's acquisition is based on Qualcomm Technologies' state-of-the-art Snapdragon technology, providing improvements CPU performance and power performance to meet the demands of the next generation of 5G computers, ”said Qualcomm.

"The combination of NUVIA and Qualcomm will unite its best talents, technology and resources industry to create a new class of high performance computing platforms. "We could not be more excited about what is to come," said Gerard Williams, CEO of NUVIA.

Qualcomm's acquisition of NUVIA could potentially see the company develop a Snapdragon chipset in the future with custom CPU cores approaching the speeds achieved by Apple. At the moment, most smartphone and Android tablets have chipsets with CPU cores based on ARM Cortex IP. Qualcomm, the Samsung, MediaTek and HiSilicon (Huawei) - that is, all major mobile processor suppliers except Apple - are currently designing chipsets that use ARM Cortex processor cores instead of their own custom designs.

Qualcomm said the acquisition would take computer performance to a new level "and bring new capabilities to products that serve many industries." We really think that everything that Qualcomm and NUVIA will offer us will be exciting.
