Qualcomm has announced a new sub-brand within the Snapdragon processor family called Oryon. The new processor will be released in 2023. It is intended for use by manufacturers in devices such as Windows PCs, smartphones, digital cockpits, driver assistance systems, augmented reality solutions, infrastructure networking solutions.
So far, Qualcomm is in no hurry to share details about the new family of Oryon processors. It is only noted that the company has developed a “new special CPU core to unlock a new level of performance.” At the same time, the company promises “a new class of incredibly powerful and efficient devices” based on Qualcomm Oryon chips. Oryon is expected to become a CPU component in a more complex Snapdragon single-chip system.
Note that Qualcomm has been producing chips under the Snapdragon brand for Windows and Chrome OS computers for several years. Although Windows devices with Qualcomm processors are not widely used. Perhaps with Oryon, the company hopes to capture the mass market by offering higher performance for Windows on Arm devices. Although often the low popularity of such devices is not so much due to performance issues, as to Windows on Arm itself, which has problems running applications made for traditional Windows PCs and does not offer sufficiently optimized applications.
