Qualcomm Could Have Tested Windows 12 OS On X Elite Chipset


Back in Hawaii last year, Qualcomm pulled back the veil from two of its chipsets; the first was the long awaited Snapdragon 8 Gen3, and the second was the X Elite, and ARM-based processor designed and built to operate Microsoft’s Windows OS. Recently, it’s being hinted, by the chipmaker no less, that it recently conducted further tests with the latter, using an unspecified “Window OS”.

The fact that the test system references the OS as such is interesting, because, at this point, many components manufacturers such as AMD, Intel, and NVIDIA have no issue specifying the OS version they pulled their performance data from. Windows 11 is currently the OS of choice for obvious reasons, and you don’t usually hide the version of your Windows OS unless there’s something you don’t want the media, let alone the general masses, to know about.

Moving on, the fine print says that its Snapdragon X Elite SoC was tested in a “Qualcomm reference design” laptop with the Windows OS and against two laptops powered by Intel’s Core i7-1360P and i7-1355U, both of which were tested with Windows 11. Oh, and both those laptops were Samsung Galaxy Book 3 models. Beyond that, there is no further information.

It’s been indicated by rumours that Windows 12 will be friendlier to ARM-based systems, with the OS featuring AI-focused capabilities, including Copilot, and that the OS should be arriving as early as mid-2024. Also, and if it wasn’t made clear at the beginning, Qualcomm practically designed the Snapdragon ARM Elite as an alternative to a market dominated by Intel and AMD.
