  • 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 ARMEver since Microsoft and Qualcomm announced in December 2016 that full Windows 10 would be coming to ARM processors, the question on everyone's mind has been how well those x86 apps will run. After all, we all know that legacy Win32 apps don't perform well and drain more power than UWP apps, but since they'll be run with emulation, one would assume that the cost would be even greater.

  • Windows on ARMYesterday, Intel published a blog post celebrating the 40th birthday of the 8086, which was the first x86 processor. But after the company boasted about the innovations that it's brought to the platform over the last four decades, it made what sounds like a veiled threat toward anyone emulating its technology without its permission.

  • Windows on ARMAlthough Qualcomm is the only ARM licensee to strike a deal with Microsoft to allow legacy Windows 10 apps to run on its processors, ARM executives say there are no legal limitations preventing others from doing so as well.

  • Windows on ARMIntel x86 or x64 processors have traditionally been found in laptops and desktops, while ARM processors have been found in lower-power embedded devices, smartphones, and tablets. But you can now buy laptops with ARM chips and smartphones with Intel chips.

  • Windows on ARMOver the past week, I’ve had the fortune to play with both Microsoft’s Surface 2 and the Asus T100 Transformer Book. These are very similar devices — convertible laptops with detachable keyboards — except for one big and fundamentally life-altering difference: Where the Surface 2 is powered by Nvidia’s ARM-based Tegra 4 SoC, the Transformer Book has Intel’s x86 Bay Trail under the hood.

  • WinDjView for Windows RTI have been an ultra, uber, perma-bear on Windows RT. Windows RT is quite literally Windows 8 but with fewer features, but ships on devices that have no cost advantage over Windows 8 equivalents. See, if I could go out an buy a 7" Windows RT tablet for $200, then sure, that makes sense.

  • Windows on ARMThis year, Intel will launch its Haswell chips. One of the most important performance improvements of Haswell will be power efficiency and battery life. Meanwhile, Microsoft created Windows RT to run on ARM-based chips for better battery life. Microsoft's Surface RT runs an NVIDIA Tegra processor, and has better battery life than the Surface Pro, which sports an Intel chip.

  • Windows on ARMWith the release of Windows 8, Microsoft has hedged its bets. In an effort to make its OS more suitable for tablets, it simultaneously released RT, the first version of Windows to support the ARM chips found in most smartphones and tablets. While Windows RT promises uncompromising battery life, it's not capable of running "legacy" Windows apps — despite the confusing Desktop mode.

  • Windows on ARMIntel has been working hard to scale down its chips to make them more mobile friendly, but what does this mean for Windows RT and ARM based devices?
     

  • Windows on ARMFolks, we're standing on the edge of a cliff. Behind us is the comfortable confines of the PC world of old, desktops and laptops in all their familiar guises. But ahead, we see the blue sky and uncertainty of an amazing range of Windows PC and device types, with varying architectures and capabilities. It's a future of amazing possibility, but it's also confusing.

  • Windows on ARMIntel believes that Windows RT falls short of the full Windows 8 experience, with a senior executive telling TechRadar that compatibility with old software and peripherals will remain a key issue for the ARM-based version of Microsoft's new operating system.

  • Windows on ARMWindows 8 represents a new kind of Windows release for Intel, in terms of the opportunities to expand into new markets, and the threats posed to the chipmaker's core PC processor business.

  • Windows on ARMIntel introduced a new wrinkle into the Windows 8 tablet market on Thursday by launching an upgrade of its entry-level Atom chip line best known for (under)powering netbooks. The more powerful but still low-cost  Windows 8-compatible microprocessor challenges the need for Windows RT tablets powered by ARM chips.

  • Windows on ARMSeptember 18, 2012, 8:29 AM — It's getting so you need a scorecard to keep up with the relationships between Linux and ARM chips these days.
     

  • Windows on ARMIt's a radical thought. What if Microsoft is secretly planning to ditch Intel? With all of the recent talk about Windows RT"PCs", distinctions between the consumer roles associated with RT-based devices and the more traditional PC roles normally reserved for Intel-based systems have become blurred.

  • Windows on ARMThe question on everyone's mind as Microsoft (MSFT) prepares its Windows 8 launch is whether chips based on ARM Holdings' (ARMH) designs gain significant traction in the Windows 8 PC market, and if this will represent a significant dent to Intel's (INTC) PC chip dominance.

  • Windows on ARMWith the big release of Microsoft's Windows 8 operating system fast approaching, the war of words between Intel and ARM has become more heated as the rivals gear up for the release of new touch-based devices with their processors.

  • Windows on ARMScrolling through my twitter feed it became clear quickly that there were questions about if we would Windows RT running on Intel architecture. There are two versions of Windows 8, the full edition with the option of the familiar desk top and Windows 8 RT which is basically just the Metro UI.
