Samsung is keen to compete with Apple’s M1 chip with its next Exynos

Exynos chips may well become the cornerstone of the PC-to-ARM transition. Samsung is said to be developing an iteration internally for Windows 10 / 10X PCs. Samsung seems to be following in the footsteps of Apple Silicon and its macs with ultra-performing M1 chips.

Let’s not go four ways: Is Samsung becoming a bit of a homebody? After firing innovation in the smartphone industry, the South Korean manufacturer sometimes gives the impression of waiting for Apple to take risks to take some in turn. In any case, this seems to emerge from a new report taken up by WCCFTech.

This confirms that Samsung is developing an Exynos chip internally for PCs. Very few details about the project are known at this stage. But these chips could include an AMD GPU. By leveraging ARM, Samsung is initiating the transition of the PC industry – provided that this is followed by other manufacturers. However, there is a chance that this will happen.

Exynos chips could soon find their way into PCs

Indeed, the incredible performance of Apple’s latest Macs and their M1 chip – the most entry-level Apple will ever launch – is a hit. I have to say that Apple shows the switch to ARM both boosts battery life and performance. A demonstration that no player in the industry had so far managed to make.

Not even Qualcomm, which has, however, been investing in this segment for several years with chips like the Snapdragon 8cx. This example should, in passing, serve as awarning to Samsung. To be successful, you must not be satisfied with having a balanced chip packed with features. It is also necessary that the software part is optimized so that the strengths of ARM can be exploited.

However, the concern is that the first ARM machines available suffer from poor performance, especially with the many applications emulated on the architecture. Can Samsung do better? We invite you to discuss it in the comments!
