Introduced Qualcomm aptX Lossless codec for Bluetooth CD quality audio (16-bit, 44.1 kHz)



Qualcomm has introduced a development that will delight fans of listening to music in wireless headphones. This is aptX Lossless codec that delivers CD quality audio (16 bit, 44.1 kHz) over Bluetooth.

Compression has to be applied to fit the 1.4 Mbps stream, which is the quality of a CD, into the 1 Mbps channel used by Qualcomm. But the company ensures that lossless compression is used. In other words, the stream at the output of the decoder is completely identical to the stream at the input of the encoder.

The codec will be included in the Snapdragon Sound technology announced in March. This assumes that all future Snapdragon Sound-enabled products will support the new codec as well. Unfortunately, this also means that the codec is incompatible with the existing SoC lineup. The appearance of devices with the aptX Lossless codec is expected in 2022.

In less than a year, the situation on the video cards and processors market may improve. The head of AMD spoke about the shortage of chips



AMD CEO Lisa Su expressed her opinion on the duration of the chip shortage. According to her statement, in the first half of 2022, the supply is likely to still be limited.

But already in the second half of next year, the shortage of microcircuits will not be as acute as it is now. How much the situation will change, the head of AMD did not predict, but her vision is still better than that of a number of other specialists who predict improvement only in 2023.

It should be understood that AMD itself does not produce semiconductors, so we are talking about improving the situation in general, which will affect not only AMD, but all other companies as well.

In general, so far most forecasts agree that the situation with the deficit will improve at least in the second half of 2022 or at the beginning of 2023, but no one undertakes to predict when the situation will completely return to normal.
