With the introduction of the new Copilot+ PCs, new names and terms have appeared in the PC world. While this may seem confusing at first, it’s actually much simpler than it sounds. In this week’s #AskGriots, we’re going to clear things up to help you understand.

Intel, AMD & x86

Intel is an American company and a historic leader in the design and manufacture of processors. Its products include the Core i3, i5 and i7 processors, recently renamed Core Ultra. AMD is an American company and a direct competitor of Intel.

Intel and AMD use a family of processor architectures originally developed by Intel, called x86. It is used in the vast majority of the world’s computers (excluding Apple) and servers.

Qualcomm, ARM, Snapdragon

Qualcomm is specialized in chips for mobile devices. It uses ARM architecture and is best known for its Snapdragon processors, which power many Android smartphones.

ARM is not just a processor architecture, but also a company that designs these architectures. ARM chips generally consume less power and are more compact than x86 chips. This is one of the reasons why they are found in our smartphones.

But with the launch of its Apple M chips, Apple has proved that ARM chips can also be used effectively in computers.
