Qualcomm has started working on the development of a new custom CPU for Windows that will comprise 8 and 10 cores tech elements. As per the details, the company already intends to equip its first high-end chip with 12 cores for Windows-based ARM PCs. And we may see the implementation in the time ahead.
The information further hints that Qualcomm is currently testing a new chip – Snapdragon 8cx Gen 4 CPU codenamed Hamoa which could arrive in three custom variants including 8, 10, and 12 cores and will make its way to Windows. Model numbers for 8 and 10 cores are SC8350 and SC8370.
