From the surface product line released in October, Microsoft will not only join hands with Intel and AMR, the two x86 giants,Cooperation with Qualcomm on arm will not stop, the latest rumors say that 2021 H1 version of windows 10 will be greatly changed, supporting 64 bit x86 processor running on ARM processor.
In 2016, Microsoft launched windows on arm, which is to let ARM processor support complete windows 10 experience. X86 program is realized through simulator. However, so far, the experience of win10 on arm is not perfect, it can only support 32-bit x86, not 64 bit x86.
Intel knows that,In September, at IFA exhibition, it also attacked the compatibility problem of windows on ARM running Dropbox, Logitech, Plantronics and other programs, unable to run the game smoothly.
If Microsoft really wants to let users experience the complete windows ecosystem on the arm processor, it is necessary to support 64 bit applications. Of course, this process also involves a very complex development work, the simulator is not so good development.
However, it is not impossible for arm to run 64 bit x86,Neowin's website exclusively learned that Microsoft is expected to achieve this goal on Windows 10 in the first half of 2021, namely, version 2020h1 of win10。
Users of internal testing may not have to wait that long,As soon as 2020。
If this road goes on, it's really good for the manufacturers in the arm camp. The complete experience of windows 10 no longer depends on the x86 ecosystem, and the arm processor manufacturers can also take a share.
