  • Windows on ARMNVIDIA's founder and president Jen-Hsun Huang has never been one to dodge a question, and that made for an excellent closing interview here at AsiaD. Outside of (re)confirming what lies ahead for Tegra, he also spoke quite openly about his feeling towards Windows on ARM in response to a question from Joanna Stern. Here's the bulk of his reply:

  • Windows on ARMIntel will be as strong as ever despite the emergence of an alternative platform for Windows 8. That's my forecast after bouncing between Northern and Southern California this week and attending two major tech conferences--the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco and the BUILD conference in Anaheim.

  • Windows on ARMOne of the first things Windows 8 chief Steven Sinofsky said in the Build keynote this week was that all the demos were “equally at home on ARM and on x86.” However, besides that statement and our brief look at the Developer Preview running on an Nvidia quad-core Kal-El reference tablet, Microsoft remained relatively tight-lipped on the new architecture support – especially on when it will release the ARM version of Win 8 to developers and how it plans to address the fact that future ARM PCs won’t run x86 desktop apps.

  • Windows on ARMWhile the x86 version of the Windows 8 Developer Preview was released last night and attendees were given Intel Core i5-powered tablets, there’s been very few public demos of the new OS on ARM devices here at Build. And while we’d love to say that’s changing today, it seems all the Win 8 ARM devices are being guarded quite closely. Reference design tablets running the Developer Preview from Nvidia, TI, and Qualcomm are now on display at the show, but sadly, most of them are behind glass with just the Start screen showing.

  • Windows on ARMWell, talk about being in the right place at the right time: We just ran into VP of Windows Planning Michael Angiulo at the Nvidia booth, who was kind enough to snatch that quad-core Kal-El tablet from its glass cage and let us play a bit with Windows 8 on ARM. We’ll admit, it wasn’t a very in-depth demo, but we were able to see snappy transitions between the Desktop and Metro interfaces.

  • Windows on ARMExclusive: Windows chief talks ARM vs Intel and Metro vs desktop - What we've seen at the Microsoft Build conference this week has been Windows 8 running on familiar, if stylish x86 PCs, with the occasional glimpse of prototype ARM hardware from Qualcomm and Nvidia.

  • Windows on ARMARM prototype tablets and devices will be among those running Windows 8 at Microsoft's Build conference this week - Microsoft's upcoming Windows 8 OS running on ARM prototype tablets and other devices will be open for developer scrutiny at the software giant's Build conference this week.

  • Windows on ARMIntel and challenger ARM are set for a PC showdown this week as competition heats up to redefine the laptop and reverse the sagging fortunes of the PC market. Intel this week at its Intel Developer Forum developer show will provide further details on the rollout of ultrabooks, which have been described as thin and light PCs with tablet-like features. The chip maker is also expected to talk up Microsoft's upcoming Windows 8 OS at the show, which will be held in San Francisco Tuesday through Thursday.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft's next big catalyst is Windows 8, and from the early looks of things, it blows away its past predecessors.There was a demonstration done recently where the boot time was the fastest in Microsoft's history. On a regular laptop, it was even faster an Apple MacBook, which is known for its fast start times. Historically, this has been a major complaint of Windows users. From the looks of those videos, end users will not be complaining anymore.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft today painted a radical vision of computing's future, demonstrating several Windows 8 features running on a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra-powered tablet. Speaking at the company's BUILD developer conference in Anaheim, Calif., Mike Angulio, Microsoft's VP of Windows planning, demonstrated:

  • Windows on ARMNvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang says that his company's Tegra processor will be in both tablets and PCs running Windows 8 by the end of 2012. According to Huang, a $199 ARM-powered PC categorized as "bottom-of-the-barrel" by today's x86 standards will be be nothing short of "exquisite" when running Windows 8.

  • Windows on ARMWhile this year's IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin is a bonanza for anyone looking forward to buying an Ultrabook, there's another portable device which is conspicuous in its absence: ARM-powered laptops.

  • Windows on ARMNvidia's CEO boasted about the power frugality of an upcoming quad-core chip, as the company reported better-than-expected earnings today. The graphics chip supplier swung to better-than-expected earnings in the fiscal second quarter ended July 31, buttressed by revenue from laptop graphics processing units used with systems built around Intel's "Sandy Bridge" processors.

  • Windows on ARMEven though there is still more than a year left until the first SoC designs based on ARM's Cortex A15 core make their way into mobile devices, recent reports suggest these chips are expected to deliver quite an important performance increase over the current Cortex A9 processors.

  • Windows on ARMExpected to arrive no earlier than 2013, Nvidia's Project Denver processors based on the ARM architecture will allegedly feature eight computing cores that will be paired together with 256 CUDA cores based on the Fermi architecture.

  • 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?

  • Windows on ARM

    The entire mobile computing  market is about to experience a substantial change, from the predominant use of the ARM processor to that of Intel and AMD – potentially. Currently, the tablet market is dominated by ARM chips produced by Qualcomm, Texas Instruments and Nvidia. And, until now, unlike laptops, tablets haven’t sported Intel or AMD silicon.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft introduced a number of tablet concepts during a partner preview event earlier this week. - The software giant held a technical demonstration at Computex on Thursday to demonstrate Windows 8 to hardware partners. Mike Angiulo, corporate vice president of Windows Planning, Hardware and PC Ecosystem at Microsoft, demonstrated Windows 8 on a variety of tablets.

  • Windows on ARMRemember how Microsoft unveiled that whole "Windows 8" thing earlier today? It's back for more: here at Computex 2011 in Taipei, prototype ARM-based Windows 8 slates and smartbooks are coming out of the woodwork. Foxconn, Wistron and Quanta all unveiled early hardware for the new OS, with chips from Qualcomm, Texas Instruments and NVIDIA powering their live tiles -- including NVIDIA's upcoming Kal-El, which got both a tablet and a super-slim prototype notebook to call its own.
