Windows RT benchmark

  • Windows on ARMWe just spent a week hearing about the future of Qualcomm’s PC chips. Now it’s time to return to the present. Until the Snapdragon 8cx comes out around Q3 2019, the battle of Intel vs. Snapdragon is being played out in stores and online, with the scrappy Snapdragon 835 and 850 facing a small army of Intel mobile CPUs.

  • Windows on ARMArm announced its second-generation DynamIQ “big core,” the Cortex-A76, as well as a new Mali-G76 GPU and the Mali-V76 VPU with support for 8K UHD resolution.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft has come up with some strange ideas over the years. Their latest one, which has been coming from a while, is running Windows on ARM processors once again, with the help of Qualcomm and some daring device manufacturers. This new Windows on ARM initiative was announced in 2016 and formally launched last year, and now we have laid our hands on the very first Windows on ARM device, the HP Envy x2, for some serious benchmarking.

  • Windows on ARMWith Windows on ARM PCs right around the corner now, benchmarks are starting to appear online, and they're not too exciting. This time, it's a 13-inch laptop from ASUS that's shown up (via WinFuture), codenamed TP370QL.

  • Windows on ARMAlthough all improvements brought by Windows 10 won’t be available for Windows RT, the tablet-oriented operating system is set to receive an update sometime soon that would include some functionality introduced by the new operating system, such as the old Start menu.

  • Windows on ARMWith Microsoft planning to kill off Windows RT by not allowing existing ARM devices sporting a screen size of more than 8-inches to upgrade to full Windows 10, one important question arises. Which large screen tablet running Windows 10 will be released by Microsoft to replace its discontinued ARM devices?

  • Windows on ARMTest and compare the gaming performance of Windows RT devices such as the Microsoft Surface, then compare their performance with over 2000 other devices. You can even compare your benchmark test scores with phones and tablets running Android and iOS.

  • Windows on ARMIn February, Futuremark released the first version of its 3DMark benchmarking software made to work with PCs that had Windows Vista, 7 and 8 installed. Today, the company launched a version of the software in the Windows Store that not only works on Windows 8 but on Windows RT as well.

  • Iperf for Windows RTIperf was developed by NLANR/DAST as a modern alternative for measuring maximum TCP and UDP bandwidth performance. Iperf allows the tuning of various parameters and UDP characteristics. Iperf reports bandwidth, delay jitter, datagram loss.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft set the standard for Windows RT-based hardware, but is there still room for partners to sell compelling alternatives? We take our first Qualcomm-powered Windows RT tablet for a spin to determine if Samsung's ATIV Tab is worth waiting for.

  • Windows on ARMOver a year ago, Futuremark announced it would release a new version of its popular 3DMark PC benchmarking software for Windows 8. At the time, the plan was to launch 3DMark for Windows 8 before the end of 2012. Today, Futuremark announced the launch date has been pushed back but just for a little while longer.

  • Windows on ARMFuturemark has announced that the next version of 3DMark, its popular benchmarking software, will offer cross platform testing capabilities on Windows, Windows RT, Android and iOS devices. With three all new tests Futuremark says 3DMark can be used with the full range of hardware from smartphones and tablets, to notebooks and home PCs, to the latest high-end, multi-GPU gaming desktops. Futuremark expects to launch the new 3DMark before the end of the year.

  • Windows on ARMWhile Internet Explorer 10 may be a big improvement in performance compared to previous versions of Microsoft's web browser, that may not be case when it comes to IE10 running on Microsoft's Windows RT version of Surface.

  • Windows on ARMWe've already established that one of the Surface's most distinctive features is its Windows RT operating system, designed to run on hardware driven by ARM's processor architecture. Experientially, Windows RT is very much like the x86 version of Windows 8 we reviewed in The Definitive Windows 8 Review And User Guide, sharing the same Windows 8 UI, Start screen, and multi-touch gesture support.

  • Windows on ARMEveryone has focussed on the headline price tag for Microsoft's forthcoming tablet, and forgotten about the alternative ways that exist to get customers to pay for things they buy.

  • Windows on ARMLast week at Computex, TI showed Anand Windows RT running on one of their own reference tablets. While performance was good according to Anand, Microsoft has instructed partners to not show off anything but the start screen for Windows RT and not much more in the way of video.

  • Windows on ARMIt seems that ARM's Cortex A15 architecture is getting ready to deliver yet another blow to Intel's low-performing Atom. A new Qualcomm ARM CPU has apparently made some waves on the GLBenchmark database.

  • Windows on ARMHELSINKI, FINLAND – NOVEMBER 14, 2011 – Futuremark®, the world leader in performance benchmarking software, today announced development of a new version of 3DMark®, the company's flagship benchmark for gamers. 3DMark for Windows 8 (working title) is designed for gaming performance measurement and comparison across all Windows 8 devices from tablets and notebooks to high-end desktop gaming systems.

  • Windows on ARMIntel is trying as hard as it can to promote its Atom processors for tablet use, and recently the Santa Clara chip giant unveiled a series of benchmark that compare its single-core Z670 CPU with a dual-core ARM-based SoC, the Intel chip proving to be faster than its counterpart in all tests run.

  • Windows on ARM

    Among the many Windows 8 topics that Microsoft hasn't discussed is what ARM performance is going to be like. After all, while Windows ARM tablets will have dual core or quad core cpus running at a 1.8 or 2.5GHz speed – faster than most netbook Atom processors and the Celerons in cheap ultraportables, or even ultra-low power Core i5s - what does that mean for an operating system as complex as Windows?
