This is according to Bloomberg. According to the business news site, “Microsoft Corp. (MSFT), seeking to break into the market for tablet computers, will update its Surface RT using chips from Qualcomm Inc. (QCOM), people with knowledge of the company’s plans said.
“Some new versions of Surface will be based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processors, which can deliver fast wireless data connections, said the people, who asked not to be identified because Microsoft has yet to announce new models. Nvidia Corp. (NVDA), whose Tegra chip is used in the current Surface RT, will continue as a supplier for some versions, one person said.”
Of course, since Microsoft is yet to confirm this report, take it with a pinch of salt.
