We all knew Microsoft’s dream of launching new ARM based Windows 10 Devices after strong relationship with Qualcomm. The company is now expected to debut a whole range of Windows 10 laptops running on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor over the next few weeks, with a 12-inch device by HP already leaked. According to reports, both Microsoft and Qualcomm have promised great multi day battery life with optimum performance but the recent leaks found in Geekbench by Winfuture.de under the name Qualcomm CLS suggests Microsoft may not be able to deliver on this.
That means the results are not upto-the-mark what we see on other devices. Single core gets 2200 and multi core results in 7700.
MSPU states that this is because of three possible reasons. The first one is about optimization. Probably the reason why Apple and their chips run more aggressive with less hardware as compared to their Android counterparts. Pretty much the same case with Microsoft. Maybe Windows 10 on ARM isn’t yet much optimized.
The second explanation to this is that perhaps the benchmarks do not take advantage of the second run caching the ARM emulator does which makes running the ARM-emulated apps much faster the second time than the first.
The last one is the worst. Windows on ARM is just inherently slower due to the emulator and OS overhead and that this will always be the case.
But something is fishy here. We all heard the news that OnePlus and some more companies alter their products which enables them to do better on benchmarks than they actually work. Does benchmark scores really define how a gadget works? Let us know in the comments section below.
