    ARM won't kill x86 as long as Windows is still alive. NO ONE will want a Windows machine that can't run properly the millions of software already made for x86, and NO ONE will buy again all the software they already bought just to transition to ARM. It only worked for Apple because Apple users are moronic cash-cows.

      Emulation is solved, Apple proved already that it can be seamless. Three times, once with 68k to PPC, a second time with PPC to Intel, and now with Intel to ARM.

        Apple's implementation of ARM is specifically designed to Emulate x86. Most ARM cpus are not.

          Doesn't matter, PPC didn't emulate 68k and Intel didn't emulate PPC. Emulation is a solved problem. IBM Z-series proves it too.

          Microsoft has to maintain perfect compatibility with moronic enterprise software, as well as old and arcane programs from 15 years ago. Imagine the screeching if MS pulled the plug from win32, completely rewrote Windows in Rust, and only supported apps written in their new architecture. The operating system (which would be called Windows 12 I suppose?) would be fantastic, but the entire tech industry, as well as normalhomosexual masses would go MAD.

          So? CPU emulation isn't the problem here, it's Windows and DOS emulation / compatibility which are also solved problems. Maybe MS can contribute to WINE.

            I can emulate Windows on my Mac, it works even faster than it does on my Intel PC but the emulation kills the battery life. Also, Rosetta2 emulated Intel Mac apps also use noticeably more battery than Apple silicon native apps. My point is, if you want good battery life, you need to have natively built apps for your architecture. Since MS has so much tech debt built over the years, and they can't expect all 200 gorillion developers to port their apps over to Windows on ARM, it is bound to be worse in terms of performance and battery life.

            That's a solved problem in Nextstep which is basically OS X / iOS - fat application bundles which contain binaries for multiple architectures. This is done right now, and was the primary way to ship programs going back to the 1990s when cross platform was a goal. Which it was.

          that's due to certain intel-specific optimizations, which have already been fixed

      CPUs with 8 cores lose overwhelming in compile times to CPUs with 64 or 32 cores. You can't be this stupid, this has to be bait.

    WindiaOS being an unoptimized pile of curry will kill any advantage ARM chips could have over x86 processors, and knowing Qualcomm, the chips will be locked to prevent the installation of better OS.

      This is PRECISELY the goal. Microsoft wants this MORE THAN ANYTHING. Next step, get rid of administrator accounts and sideloading. Then they get 30% of every single software sale forever as users are forced to get software from their shitty store. Microsoft is so fricking jealous of Apple's walled garden they can fricking taste it. They've been trying to put up walls for years, but nobody wants their shitty walls or their shitty garden, so they need some way to force it.

      That's the Microsoft's computer of the future, a fricking phone for your desk.

    Microsoft still can't optimize Windows for ARM properly, and it's bad enough that qualcomm had to cheat on their benchmarks. Although the battery life on idle is probably not affected quite so much.
    If that screencap about how to add an item to the right click menu in control panel is any indication, they don't even know what large chunks of their source code even does, and I've got no reason to imagine that's improved since I last heard, so a lot of that's going to remain unsolved for a long time.
    And if they're still using DDR memory instead of special snowflake memory that's on the CPU package and shares a controller with the storage device it's not going to catch up to apple anytime soon either.

    Unless there's something else I don't know about I think that windows optimization is going to be more of a barrier to a complete switchover to ARM laptops than enterprise software that wasn't compiled for ARM.
