Intel in Anger from Qualcomm and Microsoft Cooperation

8086 architecture for about 40 years. At the same time, Intel is investing a lot of effort in its development all these years. In this regard, Intel has voiced a nuisance, as laptops on Snapdragon 835 running Windows 10 will use the onboard X86 emulation architecture.

“There were reports that some companies could use X86 architecture emulation, belonging to us, without our permission,” said Intel’s chief attorney.

“We do not approve of illegal infringement of our patents and fully expect other companies to continue to respect Intel’s intellectual property rights.”

The 8086 architecture was launched on June 8, 1978. For 39 years, SIMD parallelism has been added at the data layer, SSE rendering of the multimedia system, security has been improved. Intel has 1600 patents with which the company will seek justice.

Intel also recalled how it was handled with the help of the patented war to “destroy” the TransMata company, which at one time developed a compatible X86 processor using emulation.

However, it’s worth understanding that Qualcomm isn’t TransMata. The company has good lawyers who probably provided a couple of tips before starting work on the Windows Snapdragon project. In any case, it is still unknown what it will be in the future. It is possible that Qualcomm will have to pay a large penalty or deduct the percentage of Intel profits from the sales of Windows laptops on Snapdragon.
