Recently, Qualcomm announced its quarterly financial report for the new fiscal year, with revenue of US$8.235 billion, a 62% year-on-year increase, and net profit of US$2.455 billion, a year-on-year increase of 165%. Qualcomm released the Snapdragon 888 chip last year, which is also its first 5nm chip. In the official announcement, Qualcomm also talked about the acquisition of NUVIA. They recently spent US$1.4 billion, or about 9 billion yuan. Acquired this startup company that was just 2 years old.
After the acquisition, Qualcomm obviously wants to go further on high-performance ARM chips, especially after Apple launched its self-developed M1 chip. Qualcomm must follow this trend. Qualcomm, like Apple, has the most advanced ARM architecture authorization. Previously, Qualcomm was self-developed ARM architecture, but in recent years Qualcomm has gradually adopted the ARM public version CPU architecture, and Snapdragon 888 also first released the ARM Cortex-X1 super core.
