Steam shared the week’s bestseller list!


Microsoft has announced its new ARM-based computer, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon computing platform. The computer named Project Volterra appeals to Windows developers more than end users. It comes with a Windows development kit that will enable developers to build Arm-powered applications.

New ARM-based Windows computer: Project Volterra
This year we clearly see that Microsoft is paying more attention to Windows compared to its other products. At the Build conference held recently, the technology giant introduced its products aimed at strengthening the Windows on Arm platform.

Microsoft, which has recently grown the Windows on Arm (WoA) platform considerably, can run almost all Windows applications on a single computer thanks to Arm-based computers. Built with the Qualcomm Snapdragon computing platform, the new Project Volterra is similar in design to the Mac mini. But the purpose of use is quite different.

Although Project Volterra has been officially announced; Important information such as features, price and release date were not shared. The launch video that Microsoft shared for Project Volterra showed that the mini computer has a standard NVMe SSD.

Microsoft says it is collaborating with Qualcomm for its new ARM-based computer and will come with a “flagship processor.” Although it is Microsoft’s first “desktop” computer, it seems that it will be difficult for us to see it on the shelves because it does not appeal to the end user.

Qualcomm also announced at the Build conference the new Qualcomm Neural Processing kit, which will enable Windows developers to extend AI scenarios. In fact, the company said the new computer will support best-in-class AI computing capabilities.

Microsoft received a lot of criticism in the early days of the Windows on Arm platform. Because the models powered by Intel processors were insufficient in terms of battery. There wasn’t much reason to run Windows on ARM. The next generation of artificial intelligence and neural processing seems to change this.
