Asus NovaGo with Snapdragon 835 - it's a hands on review
Hi my name is Fudo and I am an X86 addict. For most of my life I have been using X86 for productivity and I have flirted with Intel, AMD and even VIA (all caps). Now, the new player in town, Qualcomm, offers an ARM instruction, Snapdragon 835 based PC that runs Windows 10. We spent a few days with an Asus NovaGo 2-in-1 machine, and guess what, it works like a charm. You simply cannot tell that this is not based on a traditional Intel Core M X86, based CPU.
Feature update version 1803
This might be the last Redstone insider preview before Microsoft officially releases its Redstone 4 spring update of the software, and it is available for X86 and ARM – Snapdragon 835 Windows 10 users on a slow update ring today.
Ten new carriers signed too
Qualcomm has managed to get industry heavyweights Amazon and JD.com to start selling its Windows 10 on Snapdragon 835 devices. Microsoft will carry the devices in its retail stores too. At the same time, it locked down 10 world carriers to announce the data plans for such devices.
Another big win
Fudzilla exclusively brought you the news that Samsung is one of the companies working on a very sexy Snapdragon on Windows 10 and our sources have confirmed that Xiaomi is also part of the early supporter group.
Exclusive: 64-bit SDK coming
We had a chance to ask Erin Chappelle, General Manager of the Windows and Device group of Microsoft, and lead player of Windows 10 on Snapdragon about the lack of 64-bit emulation support at launch.
EVP Cristiano Amon confirms
Fudzilla wants to let you know that Snapdragon 835 based Windows on Snapdragon is just the first step and the company’s Cristiano Amon confirmed that this is just the first of many.
Four to five times better than some Intel
Qualcomm talked a bit here at the Computex show about Snapdragon 835 running Windows, and we had a chance to see a demo and chat with Qualcomm’s Don McGuire VP of product marketing and Pete Bernard, a Principal Group Program Manager partner and customer engagement R&D chap at Microsoft.
