    Windows on ARMSeptember 18, 2012, 8:29 AM — It's getting so you need a scorecard to keep up with the relationships between Linux and ARM chips these days.
     

  • ARM-Based Windows 8 Notebooks in Mid-2013?

    Windows on ARMUnnamed sources within notebook vendors are reporting that the Windows on ARM platform (Windows 8 + ARM-based SoC) is expected to make its official debut towards the end of 2012. Actual products may not enter the notebook sector until June 2013, and will likely be powered by Nvidia and Qualcomm ARM-based processors used in notebooks from Asus, Lenovo and other vendors.

  • Notebook Makers Equally Concerned with ARM and x86 Chips Now

    Windows on ARMMany people may not have thought much of it before tablets set themselves loose, but it seems Intel and ARM are both, to some extent, reaching into the other's territory, the latter more than the former. There used to be a time when Intel and AMD, with their x86 CPUs, had full control of the consumer PC market.

  • ARM's 64-bit ambitions spell more trouble for Intel and AMD

    Windows on ARMARMv8 will extend the company's ecosystem of energy-efficient, secure chips to the enterprise by 2014 - In a move that should add a few more drops of perspiration to furrowed brows at Intel and AMD, ARM today unveiled details of its ARMv8 architecture, which will extend its ecosystem into the 64-bit world of enterprise computing, perhaps gaining footing in Windows environments.

  • ARM Shares Jump After Windows 8 Presentation

    Windows on ARMShares of ARM jumped by more than four per cent yesterday after Microsoft showcased a slew of tablets, both ARM-based and Intel-based, running the company's next generation operating system, Windows 8, at its BUILD developer conference.

  • Microsoft embraces ARM at BUILD

    Windows on ARMIntel may be celebrating all things x86 at its annual developer forum in San Francisco, but that didn't stop Microsoft from talking up ARM in all of its RISC-based glory at the BUILD conference in Anaheim. Although the two industry heavyweights continue to profess their love for each other, it is quite clear that a definite chill has permeated the once cozy WinTel relationship.

  • AMD: Windows 8 on ARM app compatibility is relative

    Windows on ARMThe matter of whether existing Windows applications will run on Windows 8 on ARM – putting them on tablets – has been kicked back and forth a lot this year. Intel this spring pointed out that Windows applications running on x86 for PCs won't run on Windows 8 on ARM.

  • Thinking about RISC with Windows 8

    Windows on ARMAs Microsoft expands the CPU platform support from x86/x64 families into ARM territory with the addition of ARM CPU chips, there are many questions that will be raised for enterprise systems planners and designers. Some of the arguments will go back two decades in terms of the theoretical design differences between CPUs, but in more practical views, the actual impact of two CPU device families supported by Windows needs to be thought through. In the short term, nothing needs to be done; in the long term, deeper questions arise.

  • Fast Forward: AMD and ARM - Get a Room!

    Windows on ARM

    "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." That reasoning has led to many strange alliances among nations, but it also makes for some interesting business partnerships. For example, at AMD's recent Fusion developers' conference, AMD and ARM were practically flaunting their PDAs - public displays of affection, not personal digital assistants.

  • ARM and Windows 8 – The Future Of Personal Computing?

    Windows on ARM

    Are ARM processors the future of personal computing? Will they make the leap from powering only mobile and embedded devices, to the mainstream personal computer market? With Windows 8 support for ARM on the horizon, guest writer Erphan Al-Delgir sees some big changes on the way.

  • Intel, AMD, and ARM are About to Go to War

    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.

  • ARM claims Mali will match Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 within 18 months

    Windows on ARM

    CHIP DESIGNER ARM has said that within 18 months its Mali GPU will be able to match the power of Sony's Playstation 3 or Microsoft's Xbox 360, but that Moore's Law was not the only way to achieve that.

  • Windows 8 ARM Tablets Here by Year's End, Notebook Makers Not Enthused

    Windows on ARMThat Windows 8 was going to run on ARM CPUs has been known for a while, but it looks like only now have reports appeared about just when tablets loaded with it will be formally launched. The major barrier that ARM faced when approaching the PC market was the fact that its processors were not supported by the Microsoft Windows operating system.

  • Editorial: Windows on ARM is a big deal, but it's not enough to win at tablets

    Windows on ARMWhile "Windows runs on ARM now" is a really easy thing to say, it's an extremely complicated subject, fraught with industry drama, technical accomplishment, and a hint of Microsoft's vision for the future.
