A new player enters the ARM laptop SoC space

Exclusive: A major semiconductor player steps into the fray

ARM LogoA major semiconductor player just entered the ARM laptop SoC space. This one took SemiAccurate by surprise, and it is a big development.

We told you about the deal between Microsoft and Qualcomm over WARTBook SoCs earlier, then why Microsoft booted them for repeated failures, and finally who ‘won’ that socket. There are a lot of other moving pieces in this game and a new player just entered, and it is not one of the four that are publicly known. This one changes a lot, the WARTBook plan is still garbage that will never catch Apple for technical reasons, but it is a seismic shift in the gutter.
