NUVIA is a company started in 2019 by 3 ex-Apple executives with the goal of developing new chips that could improve on power-efficiency compared to those from AMD or Intel. Qualcomm has announced it has agreed to acquire this group for a rough sum of US$1.4 billion.

The OEM perceives NUVIA as a team that has grown into a "world-class" CPU design entity. Its IP is now destined to inform platforms such as the Snapdragon SoCs for next-gen smartphones and also possibly laptops.

Qualcomm also has interests in the silicon to drive the automotive control and interaction (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) or next-gen digital dashboards, for example) and extended reality (XR) hardware of the future, to which NUVIA technology may also now be applied.

High-level representatives of Qualcomm's various partners have issued their approval and congratulations in response to NUVIA's impenidng inclusion. They range from PC-makers such as Acer, Lenovo and HP to predominantly mobile OEMs such as OnePlus, OPPO, Honor, HMD Global, Google and LG.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
