Huawei is preparing to release computers based on the ARM architecture!


Huawei is currently equipping laptops with ARM-based Keren processors. The approach reminds us of what Microsoft and Apple have done recently by integrating the ARM architecture into their computers.

When it comes to processors, Huawei has always trusted Intel to supply its own laptops, and more recently has also relied on AMD processors. But it seems that the Chinese giant will soon offer another alternative to its users, as the technical paper of the computer running using the Kirin chip has been monitored. It is the same type of processor that Huawei and Honor Android smartphones provide.

However, this laptop is not the first to rely on ARM technology. Microsoft's Surface Pro X, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air and Apple's MacMini.

Is it the end of Intel and AMD processors?

Like Apple and Microsoft, Huawei is also interested in ARM engineering to equip its computers. A leak from China's Weibo website revealed a data sheet for a soon-to-be Huawei computer called Qingyun L410. The main peculiarity of this computer is that it is equipped with the Kirin 990 chip, which is particularly present in P40, P40 Pro and P40 Pro+.

Unlike other brand computers, Windows 10 is absent from the device. The laptop is working on the "Deepin OS 20" Linux distribution, but it seems that migration to harmony os is possible in the future.

The Qingyun L410 is equipped with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.

The screen offers a maximum resolution of 1080pixels. Finally, the Kirin 990 processor must provide a 5G connection. The price of the device has not yet been announced, since Huawei has not even formalized its existence yet, the device is expected to be below the price of mateBook 14.

This is not Huawei's first computer with an ARM processor. Last November, a desktop computer called MateStation B515 equipped with the HiSilicon ARM Kunpeng 920 3211K processor appeared.

The question is, will computer manufacturers abandon the classic x86/x64 architecture in favor of ARM? It's still a little early to say, but giants Intel and AMD will no doubt worry about this new trend.
