In late 2018, we talked about the benefits of the second generation of Windows on Arm laptops, which use the Snapdragon 850 SoC built on Arm Cortex technology. An Arm-commissioned benchmarking paper showed how these 2-in-1 laptops were ahead of the competition on battery life, instant on, connectivity and thermal management.
Fast-forward over a year and we have seen the innovation of Windows on Arm laptops advance. A brand new third generation is entering the market, including marquee devices from Microsoft and Lenovo. More Arm-based laptops are expected to be announced throughout 2020, including the new Windows on Arm device from Samsung.
