Qualcomm is working arduous with a number of PC makers in a bid to launch notebooks based mostly on system-on-chips (SoCs) with its Oryon general-purpose cores, developed by Nuvia, someday subsequent yr. Though the SoC itself appears to work superb, there’s a design determination that will severely have an effect on the attraction of the platform: Qualcomm desires its companions to make use of its personal smartphone-oriented energy administration ICs (PMICs) with its next-gen processors, experiences SemiAccurate.

Qualcomm’s SoCs use proprietary energy administration protocols that necessitate utilizing the corporate’s personal PMIC. On one hand, this enables the corporate to maintain its energy administration commerce secrets and techniques non-public, however it additionally means the corporate will (or at the very least ought to) earn extra money. For now, Qualcomm’s PMICs are all designed for smartphones, which is logical as smartphone chips signify the lion’s share of the corporate’s income. However Qualcomm insists on utilizing these smartphone PMICs in laptops. Whereas these PMICs is likely to be environment friendly for smartphones, they don’t seem to be optimized for the facility necessities of cell PCs.
