Windows 8 to supports x86 and ARM CPUs
Microsoft Announces Support of System on a Chip Architectures From Intel, AMD, and ARM for Next Version of Windows
We all know for a while that Microsoft obtained ARM license from ARM Holding months ago to get next generation Windows 8 ported to ARM CPU.
ARM CPUs getting faster and faster all the times with dual core coming early 2011 and possible 64 bit quad core coming in 2012. Guess Nvidia really dont need to develop x86 chip after all.
2012 will be an interesting year to see how multi-core ARM peform compare to x86 CPUs in games benchmarks as well as Windows 8 vs ChromeOS.
