Qualcomm CEO and president Cristiano Amon has tipped 2024 as the year in which PCs using his company’s Snapdragon silicon make a mark.
"We expect to see an inflection point in Windows on Snapdragon PCs in 2024 based on a significant number of design wins to date," he said on the company's Q4 2022 earnings call.
Amon made that prediction on the back of enhanced AI features that Microsoft admires, more PC-makers signing up for the silicon, and further design work to make Snapdragon suitable to run Windows.
Amon didn't elaborate on which vendors will offer Snapdragon-powered PCs, because much of the earnings call focused on how Qualcomm will get through the remainder of 2022 and what is expected to be a difficult 2023.
