The Windows Central portal reportsthat Microsoft is considering using an ARM processor in the next generation of the Surface Go tablet, although the final decision on this matter has not yet been made.
In fact, users have long been asking Microsoft to move Surface Go to Windows on ARM, as devices based on Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c processors, such as the Samsung Galaxy Book Go, have proved to be in high demand in the budget segment.
And this year, Microsoft is seriously engaged in the development and promotion of devices on the ARM platform. So, at the Build 2022 conference, the company presented native tools for developers, including Visual Studio 2022, as well as a Project Volterra devkit based on a so far unknown ARM processor.
However, Windows Central editor Zach Bowden believes that the full transition of Surface Go 4 to ARM is not worth waiting for. Most likely, business models will continue to be equipped with chips from Intel, but the basic consumer versions may well be transferred to ARM. If this really happens, then the Surface Go 4 will probably be built on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c.
