NVIDIA is reportedly developing ARM-based processors for Microsoft’s Windows operating system, according to reports. This move allows the company to have a comprehensive lineup of products, including CPUs paired with graphic chips from AMD and Apple. NVIDIA’s plan is significant, especially considering Microsoft’s special agreement with Qualcomm to be the ARM processor manufacturer for Windows, set to expire in 2024. Currently, Microsoft is developing its own ARM-based CPUs, while both AMD and NVIDIA also have plans to release ARM processors by 2025.
The immediate impact of this news falls on Intel, the kingpin of x86 architecture. The notable shift in recent times was Apple’s Mac transitioning to M-series chips, based on ARM architecture. However, ARM, NVIDIA, AMD, and Intel declined to comment on this news report.
TLDR: NVIDIA is working on ARM-based processors for Windows, expanding its product lineup alongside AMD and Apple. Microsoft is also developing its own ARM CPUs, and both NVIDIA and AMD have plans to release ARM processors by 2025. This news negatively affects Intel, the leader in x86 architecture. ARM, NVIDIA, AMD, and Intel declined to comment on the report.
