We all know very well that the tech giant Microsoft has been working for a while on a version of Windows 10 that will work perfectly on devices based on ARM architecture, hence its association with the giant chip manufacturer Qualcomm to use its Snapdragon 835 chips with the aforementioned operating system. However, now according to the latest reports, the tech giant Microsoft itself has accidentally revealed Windows 10 on ARM limitations.
OMG! Microsoft Accidentally Revealed Windows 10 On ARM Limitations
The tech giant Microsoft has been working for a while on a version of Windows 10 that will work perfectly on devices based on ARM architecture, hence its association with the giant chip manufacturer Qualcomm to use its Snapdragon 835 chips with the aforementioned operating system.
There is no doubt that one of the main advantages of all this will be the autonomy that this duo will be able to provide users of Windows 10 in ARM, much higher than what we are used to in today’s laptops. However, since it began talking about this alliance long ago, what many users and OEMs of the firm have been fearing, is that all this seriously affect the performance and functionality of this duo.
Up to now, the Redmond-based firm, of course, the tech giant Microsoft had not clarified this issue, although it has always wanted to make clear that this Windows 10 running on ARM architecture, could run both UWP applications of the tech giant Microsoft’s Store, as well as the usual Win32, which made it hopeful to much.
However, the firm itself has released a report in which it wanted to make clear the limitations in the computers that will work with Windows 10 on the aforementioned ARM architecture, which surely has disappointed many.
Some limitations of Windows 10 on ARM are known
While some said that the performance on both platforms was going to be virtually the same, it has been confirmed that no, so there will be differences. For example, these products will only support drivers ARM64, which means it is very possible that the oldest peripheral will not work in this duo. At the same time with the X64 applications, something very similar will happen, which will not be compatible with the Windows 10/ARM duo, which suggests that the more powerful and demanding tools that we usually use today, will not work here.
On the other hand, the signature of Redmond, of course, the tech giant Microsoft has also mentioned the incompatibility with some games that depend on OpenGL, as well as with some tools related to the Windows Shell, which are not going to be possible in these new environments.
In parallel, the tech giant Microsoft has also published a report in which it offers possible solutions to its OEMs about the most common problems they will face when making their implementations. What there is no doubt is that this new information will certainly have discouraged more than one who had thought to give an opportunity of this new Windows 10 on ARM.
