Intel reveals more about multiple Win 8 versions

Intel has revealed a few more details about Microsoft’s plan to offer Windows 8 in multiple versions.

Renee James, an Intel senior vice president who heads the software and services group, reiterated at an investor’s meeting yesterday in Santa Clara, Calif., that the Windows 8 operating system will launch in versions designed for both Intel-based x86 computers and ARM-based devices.

Microsoft will offer a traditional version of Windows 8 designed to run on PCs powered by Intel’s x86 processor, James said, according to a report in The Register.
