The exclusive agreement between Microsoft and Qualcomm has expired

A new era will begin in the lives of both companies in the near future. Windows running on ARM processor systems is more successful than anyone thinks.

At the end of October, a new job offer was announced, which has been available on the official Microsoft website since the beginning of September, in which the company is looking for a department manager called SoC Architecture. Although no specific targets are included in the list, it is likely that the company plans to design and launch its own processors. It is clear that Microsoft will follow the example of Apple.

Windows was officially unveiled on the ARM platform nearly 5 years ago and has been alive and well ever since, and has been available for much longer than many analysts expected. However, XDA is now there he called Note that there is still an exclusive agreement between Microsoft and Qualcomm under which Windows on ARM systems will run exclusively on Qualcomm Snapdragon chips. The contract is about to expire, but the details are not yet known.

The news is not surprising, as Microsoft initially needed a partner to accompany it on this journey, but the downsides of the exclusive collaboration also became apparent. Among other things, Qualcomm did very little to take the performance of ARM-PCs to a new level, and there was no reason to do so, since there was no need to worry about competitors. However, MediaTek and Samsung may appear in the region in the near future, and Qualcomm may also introduce new processors. However, this will take some time, during which time Microsoft can intervene.
