During the earlier IFA 2020, Qualcomm had released a new generation of Xiaolong 8cx Gen 2 chipsets, when Microsoft's chief product officer Panos Panay revealed that app assurance was about to log into windows on arm devices.Today, the two companies finally officially announced the news. If your enterprise considers using windows on arm devices, you can buy them now.
In addition, as part of the Microsoft FastTrack program, Microsoft 365 customers can enjoy it free of charge. Brad Anderson, executive vice president of business management experience at Microsoft, said:
Consistent application compatibility of windows 10 has been one of the reasons why it is adopted globally.
We are proud to extend this compatibility to the windows 10 on ARM platform, and now our customers can safely put their business critical applications on the Qualcomm snapdragon hardware platform.
As early as December 2018, the release of the first generation snapdragon 8cx chipset by Qualcomm has aroused widespread concern for windows 10 on arm, and the company also announced that it will provide support for windows 10 enterprise edition.
Although there is still a slow and long way to go to get native arm64 applications on the platform, at least app assure will drive its further development.
