Called it.

Pretty clear that this was never going to work out when Qualcomm bought a company that specializes in server socs…… then proceeds to shoehorn them into MacBook Air clones with a fan.

Stephen was absolutely savage:

“While the Snapdragon scores are notably the best Windows offerings on the market, in some tests, the X Elite chips couldn’t even outscore Apple’s previous-generation M2 chip. Apple’s M3 chip outscored the Snapdragon in almost every test despite only having 8 CPU cores versus the X Elite’s 12.”

Not to mention that EVERY story at Windows Central about this always claimed "Snapdragon X Elite Beats Apple's M3!"

But when you read the details, they were - in fact - testing against the M3. NOT the M3 Pro. So, a 12 core CPU beats an 8 core CPU.

Whoopee. :rolleyes:
