Most of our readers are surely familiar with ARM. This British company based in Cambridge, England, has been designing microprocessors for mobile devices for years, but it still remains in the shadow of the largest industry giants. Now it looks like the manufacturer in question has big plans for the future. As reported by the Financial Times, ARM wants to make its own chips for various products, including smartphones and laptops.
The entry of another player into the SoC market for smartphones or laptops can be very beneficial for consumers. The premiere of new ARM processors will take place in two years at the earliest, but a specific announcement may take place in a few months.

According to the source, ARM plans to design and build next-generation chips on its own. To this end, the chip manufacturer has appointed a new team of engineers who will not only lead the development of next-generation solutions, but also create a completely new brand of products based on the ARM chip architecture. It is said that one of the first products of the new group of ARM engineers is still in the prototype phase, but is reportedly already at a very advanced stage. It was also mentioned that ARM does not intend to license its chips or sell them to other manufacturers, but this may change when the chip passes the first qualification tests.

It is very likely that the new chips from ARM will be created in Intel factories. After all, just now The blues revealed that they will cooperate with a British company on the production of chips in the Intel 18A technological process. However, this lithography should enter the full production cycle only in 2024 or 2025, so it seems that the premiere of new ARM processors will take place in two years at the earliest. However, a specific announcement may take place in a few months. We are very curious what will eventually see the light of day. The entry of another player into the SoC market for smartphones or laptops can be very beneficial for consumers, who may then observe increased competition among the giants of the industry.
