Windows 10 demo was on Snapdragon 821
Qualcomm president confirms multiple chipset support
Just five days ago, Microsoft announced that Windows 10 has full support for Qualcomm Snapdragon SoCs and everyone jumped to the conclusion expecting that only the Snapdragon 835 and the future SoCs are supported. It turns out that the device on stage was based on Snapdragon 821 confirming that Windows 10 runs on the current generation too.
Microsoft’s Terry Myerson, EVP, Windows and Devices Group, demonstrated Windows 10 64 bit running on the Snapdragon 820, utilizing four cores and using the full 4GB of available memory. The devices will run Universal Windows Platform (UWP) and Win32 apps through emulation and we are sure that Windows 10 will run on future hardware with even more RAM too.
This news definitely brings a much-needed change. Microsoft has realised that having Intel and AMD with X86 is not enough anymore to fight the ARM alliance. The company is starting with Qualcomm as a strong partner, and the fact that Qualcomm was exclusively used in all Windows phones definitely speeded up the development and introduction.
