Microsoft’s growing interest in ARM processors in Windows 10

Microsoft’s growing interest in ARM processors in Windows 10

Microsoft welcomes the increasingly significant adoption of the ARM architecture combined with Windows 10 . Taking this into account, the company revealed that it will accelerate support for running x64 applications via x64 emulation. Microsoft is expected to begin implementing an even deeper process in November this year via the Windows Inside program.

On its official blog, Microsoft adds a layer :

We are pleased with the momentum we are seeing from application partners adopting Windows 10 on ARM, taking advantage of the power and performance benefits of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processors. We are listening to your feedback and are accelerating Microsoft Edge and using less battery power, and we are announcing that we will soon launch a native Microsoft Teams client optimized for Windows 10 on ARM. We will also expand support for running x64 applications, with x64 emulation support that began deploying in the Windows Insider program in November. Due to developer demand, the Visual Studio code has also been updated and optimized for Windows 10 on ARM. For organizations, we are committed to helping you ensure that your applications work with Windows 10 and Microsoft 365 applications on ARM64 devices with App Assure. We are working closely with Acer, HP, Lenovo, Samsung and Surface to bring these Windows 10 over ARM innovations and products to our customers.

In short, Microsoft is opening its arms wide to all platforms that could potentially run Windows. Opportunism or lucid observation of a change in the uses that Intel and AMD neglect?

In any case, if we add to that the movement between Nvidia and ARM, we understand that the x86 barons are going to have to shake things up quickly.
