Intel’s PC stranglehold could face serious challenge from Nvidia, AMD and Qualcomm

Intel, long the dominant supplier of chips for Windows PC, could soon see its stranglehold on the market threatened by Arm-based CPUs from three major semiconductor makers — Nvidia, AMD, and Qualcomm.

Nvidia, whose graphics processing units (GPUs) are the go-to chips for AI workloads, is now reportedly designing central processing units (CPUs) for PCs in what could be seen as an effort to challenge Intel’s dominance of the personal computing chip market. Intel had 80.6% of the desktop PC CPU share as of the second quarter this year, according to IDC.

Nvidia is using technology from Arm to design chips that would run on Microsoft’s Windows operating system, Reuters reported, citing unnamed people familiar with the matter.
