  • Windows on ARMOver the past few days, Neowin has been able to uncover many of Microsoft’s upcoming plans for its Surface products. These plans include the specs for the Surface 2, a new battery powered cover, called the Power Cover, and a new dock for the Pro line of Surfaces.

  • Windows on ARMWhile Microsoft had revealed that it was working on successors to both Surface RT and Surface Pro at an event last month, many felt that the firm would at least kill off its poorly selling Surface RT. But NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang says that’s not so, and that the two companies are working on a new Surface RT model we’ll call Surface RT 2.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft hasn't offered any details about its future Surface tablets so far, although its CEO Steve Ballmer told employees at a recent internal meeting that the next generation versions of the tablets are currently being tested. Today, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has confirmed that the chip maker is working with Microsoft on a new version of the Surface RT tablet.

  • Windows on ARMComputerworld - Even as the market for Surface RT and other Windows RT tablets grows more dire by the day, chip supplier Nvidia said it remains bullish to the platform and is committed for the long term.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft is introducing a major revamp to Windows RT at its annual BUILD conference this week.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft recently released a UEFI firmware update that enhances the Surface RT speaker volume and improves system stability as part of May 2013 Patch Tuesday. Unfortunately, this update is giving several Surface RT owners a new headache.

  • Windows on ARMComputerworld - Nvidia will continue manufacturing Tegra ARM-based processors for Windows RT tablets despite sluggish early sales of the devices, making the same commitment that Qualcomm has made, an Nvidia executive said Wednesday.

  • 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 ARMNVIDIA's Tegra 3 processor is running inside Microsoft's Surface RT tablet but so far, sales of the Surface and other Windows RT devices have been disappointing. Today, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang told financial analysts today, "We expected to have sold more than we did."

  • Windows on ARMSummary: "If you extrapolate it forward by a few years, it's hard to imagine how Win RT can't possibly, won't possibly be a wonderful PC," says Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang. Do you agree?

  • Windows on ARMPerhaps the biggest attraction of CES 2013 was Nvidia's Tegra 4 mobile CPU, which combines 4-ARM Cortex A15 cores, plus a phantom core for low power tasks and 72-core GPU.  DigiTimes is reporting that the Tegra 4 could find its way in a number of Windows RT tablets that are released in 2013, including the next Surface RT tablet made by Microsoft.

  • Windows on ARMNVIDIA this week unveiled the Tegra 4, which it describes as the world's fastest mobile processor. Given the lackluster performance of Windows RT on the Tegra 4's predecessor, I'm curious whether NVIDIA's stated advances will lead to better Windows RT devices in the near future, and perhaps a new Surface RT.

  • Windows on ARMAt an event at CES 2013 in Las Vegas, NVIDIA has just announced their brand new mobile processor - the Tegra 4 - which expands on the capabilities of their previous smartphone chips. It comes with 72 GPU cores in a new ULP GeForce graphics processor, plus four ARM Cortex-A15 cores making it the first quad-core A15 chipset available; the low power companion core also makes a comeback in this chip.

  • Windows on ARMThe way Microsoft works with its hardware manufacturers fundamentally changed with the release of Windows RT. Now those longtime partners are figuring out how to deal with it.
     

  • Windows on ARMThe Tegra 3 SoC by NVIDIA can be found under the hood of many Android smartphones and tablets. Even a video game console – the Ouya, which got Kickstarted not long ago, is powered by this potent quad-core piece of silicon. Microsoft also chose a Tegra 3 chip to be the heart and brains of its Windows RT Surface tablet.

  • Windows on ARMNew Windows RT tablets announced at the IFA trade show in Berlin have intensified competition among ARM-based chip makers, which are adding unique capabilities to processors so tablets become more attractive to buyers based on performance and features.

  • Windows on ARMWith Windows RT-based devices due to launch in late October, it's likely that one of the most popular applications will be games. Today, Epic Games announced that its Unreal Engine 3 graphics engine and development tools are now available for Windows RT-based game developers.

  • Windows on ARMASUS presents a quick run-through of the brand new ASUS Vivo Tab RT (TF600), running Windows RT. Being one of the lightest & thinnest 10.1" tablets in the market, it's powered by the NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 Quad-core CPU, making it incredibly smooth and responsive.

  • Windows on ARMPC makers need to focus on mobility, ARM's Jeff Chu says, suggesting that means it's time for Windows RT. "Everything we've gotten used to in mobile phones - the touch interface, all-day battery life, all these things - are flowing into computing as a whole," he said.

  • Windows on ARMWhile Windows 8 was just about everywhere at Computex, a few vendors also championed upcoming tablets running WinRT, essentially Windows 8 running on ARM-based processors. What I saw in demos from Nvidia, Qualcomm, and TI was clearly not finished, but it was quite impressive and revealed interesting tradeoffs compared with Windows on traditional x86 architectures.
