Windows on ARMMicrosoft and Qualcomm first announced their plans to put Windows 10 on ARM chips in December 2016, promising the emulation of x86 apps. Devices with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 Mobile PC Platform were announced a year later, but they haven't exactly been met with praise, due to struggling performance of emulated applications.

Today at Computex though, Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 850 Mobile Compute Platform, promising a 30% boost in performance, a 20% boost in battery life, and a 20% increase in 4G LTE speeds. Indeed, the company says that when it asked about features that consumers would pay for, 60% said gigabit LTE and 83% said over 20 hours of battery life.
