Surge is a family of 64-bit performance ARM system-on-chips designed by Xiaomi and launched in 2017. Development for the custom chips was done by Xiaomi's subsidiary Pinecone. Surge processors are set to be used in a number of Xiaomi's own smartphones.



Xiaomi was founded in April of 2010 and has been using other ARM processors for their mobile from various vendors such as Qualcomm and Nvidia. In 2014 Xiaomi established Pinecone, a new subsidiary for the sole purpose of designing their own chips in-house to allow for higher integration in their devices. In February of 2017 Xiaomi announced their first chip in their Surge family, the S1 with a flagship S2 model to be introduced in the fourth quarter of 2017.
