Windows 10 Running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor
89 Comments


This machine is running Windows 10 on a Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor. It’s the Windows 10 you know, and it runs just like it would on any PC. Let’s get started. Here are the system properties. You can see this is running 64-bit Windows 10 Enterprise Edition with four gigabytes of RAM. Notice that I can domain join the machine, a hugely important feature for our enterprise customers. I’ll pull up the task manager so you can see the full power of the Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor with its four cores in action. When I switch to Microsoft Edge, you can see the speed and advanced functionality. Windows on this Qualcomm device will support full touch and pen functionality. Now iIm using an ink pad plugged in with USB, which works great with the inbox class driver. With Windows Ink, I can draw or highlight directly on the webpage and easily share it. Now, running video is always a true test of performance. As you can see, this trailer of the new “View from a Blue Moom” movie, available in the Windows Store, runs really smoothly. Next, we have an x86 Win32 desktop app running transparently with no changes, thanks to the magical emulation technology we’ve built into Windows 10. This is Adobe’s Photoshop running great on a Qualcomm Processor. We made zero changes to the app – it runs perfectly. I’ll select a radial blur filter on the Ninja Cat, just to show you that this is real Photoshop, with all the functionality you would expect. Another tough performance test on any PC is playing a game. Here we have the popular Windows 10 game “World of Tanks Blitz”. As you can see, it runs great. Super smooth. Our Office apps are the ultimate productivity tools for creators of all kinds, and the entire Office Desktop Suite will be available on these Qualcomm devices. You can see how fast and smooth Microsoft Word performs. That’s a quick overview of Windows 10 running on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Processor. Thanks for watching.

  1. So it basically emulates x86 environments for win32 x86 programs, this is very impressive, streamlined and seamless in the the way it looks to work – but since it is emulation, and emulation is always somewhat slower than native runtimes (along with mobile processors pushing for better battery life rather than power), won't anything intensive (such as 3d games that are not ARM) slow down intensely?

  2. Tem alguma coisa errada com esta porra… O windows normalmente trava pra caralho e isso não travou nenhuma vez…

  3. S820 is a very powerful processor. I would like to have one Arm Windows pc in my pocket. it doesn't have to be phone. I don't wanna deal with intel processors for my daily routine aynmore. because intel is gonne be always expensive for daily simple tasks. We already have android devices with arm processors but android isn't really enough for desktop needs. it's not because of android isn't powerful enough. it's because of it's designed straigth for mobility and always gives hard times with using keyboard and mouse.

  4. They should add "X" (stands for eXclusive) variant to their SoC like Snapdragon 845X that features more cores or more clocks for desktop version. Cooling a desktop cpu are much easier than a mobile counterpart.

  5. Yet when I upgraded my laptop to windows10 (which was running just fine on windows 8.1) suddenly half of my drivers are broken, like my wifi, video, and internet… Aside from that, my old laptop runs windows10 fine..

  6. I have been waiting for two long years, this is false propaganda, Microsoft is using this for click bait just for views and subscribers.

  7. Can we dualboot this?
    And does it worl with qualcomm 845? Should be even smoother, hope its available soon

  8. But can it be liberated by Linux? I see ARM64-compatible distributions around, but I don't know what exactly they run on, and this is new hardware.

  9. Wow … ich erkenne kaum mein PC – alles ist so ordentlich, viel Neues, ab jetzt werde ich öfter am Desktop arbeiten !

  10. I can't able to run turbo c (tc) on my win 10 laptop directly. But win 7 and XP run to directly. Please improve it. How to run it without dosbox because dosbox is buggy.

  11. Please is there anyone here who would love to give his or her old pc away. Please I'm in need of one. I need help. 😢😢😢😢

  12. 𝐍𝐞𝐰 𝐑𝐞𝐬𝐞𝐭 𝐖𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐨𝐰𝐬 𝐩𝐚𝐬𝐬𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐝 𝐢𝐧 𝐚 𝐦𝐚𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐨𝐟 𝐟𝐞𝐰 𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐮𝐭𝐞𝐬 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐚 𝐩𝐚𝐬𝐬𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐝 𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐞𝐭 𝐔𝐒𝐁 𝐨𝐫 𝐂𝐃 𝐢𝐬 𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐜𝐚𝐧 𝐝𝐨 𝐢𝐭 > https://t.co/VRHaESjavL?ujuyu76a 3201

  13. Snapdragon 820 runs good

    ahhh. but the optimization to a core i5 or core i7 are a shi- Explorer.exe hs stopped working

  14. Sadly, the apps look ( you can see especially in Photoshop) too false, like it's being a teamviewer with a taskbar on top of it, and, last but not the least that video was smoooooooth as if it was running on an AMD E-300 on a developer enthusiast board, with a nerdy 13yr old kiddo screaming "Oooh my geesh it worrrrrks!!!!!!!" (Raspbian x86 =) =) )

  15. lol its only 32 bit ahaha dont trust what they say.Win32 apps are being emulated, Windows 10 itself and apps from the Windows Store run natively . what a joke pluss iv heard its not cooled proply like theres no dual fan's nore the heat exchanger. just metal plated cheep and stupid , trust me do you research its a joke the gpu ahaha dont get me started

  16. Good cocktail….nice to see windows on Arm while Android is being run on Intel (Celadon – Open source Android)

  17. QCOM should make desktop PC CPUs and start competing with Intel and AMD. Today's handheld phones are basically miniature computers so they can make a CPU for a handheld computer they should be able to make a CPU for a desktop or laptop computer.

  18. We just need an ARM CPU in a traditional desktop, in a socket. PCI, SATA. Then I believe it will have developer support and bring in hobbyists. I don't think anyone wants to develop or simply recompile a piece of software on a tablet.

  19. I would have a reason to try stop hating on microsoft if they did their best to manage a dual boot for smartphones so they could run their native android and as a second choice windows.
