Windows on ARMYesterday was the first day of Qualcomm's Snapdragon Technology Summit in Hawaii, where the company brought its partners on stage for a range of announcements. AMD took to the stage to announce that its partners will be producing Always Connected PCs with AMD processors and Qualcomm modems, but HP and ASUS also announced the first Snapdragon 835-powered Windows 10 PCs.

Microsoft announced its plans to run full Windows on ARM chips almost exactly a year ago, and it said at the time that the first ARM PCs will use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset. Surprisingly though, it's not exactly the same Snapdragon 835 that you'll find in current flagship Android phones.
