Samsung making its own CPU for laptops

Has formed an internal team to create a new core 

The Dark Satanic rumour mill has manufactured a hell on earth yarn that Samsung has apparently formed a new team to build a CPU for its Galaxy Book Windows notebook PCs.

The Korean site Pulsenews has been chatting to "multiple" unnamed sources who are keen to tell it that the team is reportedly being led by a former unnamed AMD CPU developer.

Dubbed Galaxy Chip, it could be available in 2025. The chip, however, will likely be loaded with a CPU based on ARM technology as Samsung Electronics has just initiated the development of its own CPU core.

The report also says that the in-house developed CPU core could be ready by 2027. While we have heard that Samsung wants to make its own chips for its smartphones this is the first time we have heard that a PC CPU was on the cards too. The Galaxy Book series have used Intel processors.

Samsung has made its own in-house Exynox processor family for years. Those chips, however, were based on designs from ARM. Notably, the recently launched Galaxy S23 smartphones didn't have versions with Exynos chips inside for the first time in the Galaxy S series. The last Exynox chip, the 2200, was officially announced over a year ago in January 2022.
