According to some sources Microsoft It seems that they have started building their own system-on-chip (SoC). This is indicated by an updated list of vacant seats in the company showing the location of the Chief Architect of SoCs in the Surface division. The post shows the qualifications required for employment and some responsibilities.
Despite the announcement, there was no official information about Microsoft’s plans to develop its own processor. This is just an assumption and may not match the actual plan of the software giant. However, developing the processor in-house can be a big step for Microsoft. Apple’s example of exceptional success with iPhone and iPad processors is a good benchmark.
“Are you passionate about creating cool gadgets and technologies? The Surface team sheds light on Microsoft’s experience with next-generation devices. Our strategy is to bring productivity and mobility to new experiences. It’s about allowing people and organizations to unleash their creativity and unleash their creativity in combination with the devices they create, “Microsoft said in a statement.
The announcement also mentions that the entire SoC Architecture division is responsible for defining the characteristics and functionality of the SoCs used in the Surface family. This announcement may also mean that Microsoft is looking for an employee to oversee the development of custom processors for Surface devices rather than their own SoCs.
