    [EN] HP, Lenovo, and Asus willl build ARM-powered Windows 10 PCs

    Microsoft is revealing its partners for Windows 10 ARM-powered PCs at Computex today. Asus, HP, and Lenovo will be the first PC makers to develop what are described as “mobile PCs” powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor. Microsoft first revealed its plans to bring Windows desktop apps to mobile ARM processors last year, with laptops as the first devices in the market with a version of Windows 10 that supports ARM.

    Microsoft has only managed to convince three PC makers to build these new laptops with Qualcomm’s ARM processors. Unless the software giant signs on more by the end of the year, then that’s slightly less than the number of PC makers that helped launch Windows RT nearly five years ago. The first wave of Windows RT devices included devices from Asus, Dell, Lenovo, Samsung, and Microsoft itself with the Surface RT.

    Qualcomm and Microsoft still aren’t revealing exactly when these new devices from Asus, HP, and Lenovo will arrive. Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf previously revealed ARM-powered Windows 10 PCs won’t launch until Q4 this year. Both Microsoft and Qualcomm are marketing these Windows 10 PCs as having better battery life, LTE connectivity, and support for all Windows applications.

    Alongside the ARM-powered PCs, Microsoft will also support LTE on other Windows 10 devices. HP, Asus, VAIO, Dell, Xiaomi, Lenovo, and Huawei will all create Windows 10 devices that support LTE. Microsoft is also working with a range of operators to support eSIM, including AT&T, T-Mobile, Vodafone, EE, Three, and BT.

    First 'Always Connected' Windows 10 on ARM PCs are coming from ASUS, HP, Lenovo

    ASUS, HP and Lenovo are the first PC makers to commit to building Qualcomm Snapdragon-based Windows 10 PCs, which will be coming 'soon.'

    Microsoft is naming names of the first PC makers and mobile carriers who are committed to building and supporting Windows 10 "Always Connected" PCs.

    During the Microsoft keynote at the Computex show on May 31, officials provided a list of expected vendors of the first Qualcomm ARM- and next wave of Intel-based PCs that will include support for built-in LTE/eSIM technology. Microsoft and its partners are referring to these PCs as "Always Connected."' eSIM is an electronic SIM technology that will make it easier for users to choose and activate their data plans.

    Among those vendors committed to making Qualcomm Snapdragon 835-based Always On PCs are ASUS, HP and Lenovo, officials said. Intel showed off earlier this week several new Intel-based Always Connected Windows 10 PCs from Acer, Dell, Huawei, HP, Lenovo and MSI. In addition, VAIO and Xiaomi are committed to making Always Connected PCs.

    Always Connected PCs are mobile devices that will provide full Windows 10 (not a stripped down version), LTE/eSIM connectivity and longer battery life. Intel officials say there are more than 30 Always Connected Intel-based PCs in market already.

    The new wave of LTE/eSIM-capable Always Connected PCs are coming "within a year," Microsoft officials are saying. Qualcomm officials recently said to expect at least some Windows 10 on ARM devices before the end of calendar 2017. Today, a Qualcomm spokesperson wouldn't provide a firmer timeframe for the coming Windows 10 on ARM devices beyond saying "soon."

    Mobile operators who will support Always Connected PCs with eSIM include AT&T, BT/EE, DTAG/T Mobile, Vodafone, Orange, Tele2, Swisscom, 3, KDDI, Gemalto, Oberthur, Gigsky, Transatel.

    Update: China Mobile, which was part of the group of supporting operators, is no longer among them, said a Qualcomm spokesperson.

    In late 2016, Microsoft officials announced plans to offer a natively compiled version of Windows 10 to Qualcomm's ARM processors.

    This coming version of Windows 10 for Qualcomm is not Windows RT revisited . It is a version of Microsoft's full Windows 10 desktop that's compiled natively to run on the Qualcomm CPU. It can run Universal Windows Platform apps. But it also will allow Win32 apps to run via emulation

    While Microsoft's plan as of last year was to allow Windows 10 on ARM to run on devices with screen sizes of between six and 14 inches, the devices announced at Computex are all PCs and not phones.

    Intel officials said the company is investing heavily in eSIM and LTE technologies and working closely with Microsoft to validate eSIM-enabled Always Connected devices using the Intel XMMTM 7260 modem and upcoming IntelXMM 7360 modem.

    PR: Ingrasys Samples Cavium ThunderX2 Rack Mount Server Platforms

    May 29, 2017

    TAIPEI, Taiwan, May 29, 2017 – Ingrasys, fully owned subsidiary of Foxconn Technology Group, world’s largest manufacturer of server and storage platforms, today announced the sampling of new rack mount server platforms based on Cavium, Inc.’s, second generation 64-bit ARMv8 ThunderX2 product family.

    Ingrasys is a trusted name in contract manufacturing services and is a recognized leader in the delivery of high-performance and scalable server and storage designs to leading server Innovation Design and Manufacturing (IDM) as well as container datacenter end user customers.

    The Osmium platform from Ingrasys is a 2U4N rack mount density optimized server platform optimized for cloud compute and high performance computing workloads. The platform supports four compute nodes in a 2U form factor delivering highest compute and memory density in a very compact form factor. Each compute node integrates two ThunderX2 SoCs in a cache coherent dual socket configuration with up to 1 TB of memory per node and 4 x16 PCIe slots enabling a variety of rich IO configurations. The four compute nodes share common chassis and power supply infrastructure enabling cost and density optimized server platforms that require a balance of high density compute with flexible OCP v2.0 Mezzanine card for network and storage connectivity options.

    The ThunderX2 product family is Cavium’s second generation 64-bit ARMv8-A server processor SoCs for Datacenter, Cloud and High Performance Computing applications. The family integrates fully out-of-order high performance custom cores supporting single and dual socket configurations.
