Is it the Apple busting Snapdragon X Elite?

In a rather cryptic teaser, Qualcomm has hinted at a significant announcement regarding the Snapdragon X chipset, expected early this week. 

On Friday, Qualcomm released a teaser video on the official Snapdragon X social media, intriguing us with a " Keep your eyes peeled for 4/24."

The video showcases renders of a CPU chipset, which then morph into 3D representations of an "X."

There is not a lot more information to go on. It ispossible that the much-anticipated Snapdragon X Elite is on the verge of being unveiled.

In short, not a great deal. From what we can gather, Qualcomm's announcement slated for April 24, 2024, is likely about a new chipset.

Qualcomm has a couple of Snapdragon X chips up its sleeve. It could be the eagerly awaited debut of the Snapdragon X Elite or perhaps the formal acknowledgement of the Snapdragon X Plus. There's even a chance it might be both.

Considering the leaked images of the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Snapdragon Edition that surfaced online earlier this week, this announcement might just be the grand reveal of the X Elite chipset.

Qualcomm's Snapdragon X Elite is poised to be the most formidable ARM chipset thus far, boasting specialised AI PC capabilities and up to 45 TOPs of NPU performance. For those watching the pennies, an entry-level variant of the chipset will be marketed as the Snapdragon X Plus.

The X Elite outperforms the Apple M3 chip by 21 per cent on Geekbench. Moreover, an imminent Windows 11 AI feature might be exclusively available on Snapdragon X Elite PCs.
