Windows® RT

Qualcomm is leading the way in supporting Windows RT through our high-performance, power-efficient Snapdragon processors, as the company continues to be one of the top silicon providers supporting Windows-based devices.

Snapdragon processors intelligently integrate optimized processing performance, graphics, multimedia and connectivity components to meet the requirements of Windows RT, while delivering high mobile performance, low power consumption with a light form factor.

Windows RT opens up a significant new market opportunity for app developers when they write apps for Windows RT. Because these apps will run on both x86- and ARM-based devices, developers can target these upgraded legacy systems, plus all the hot new Windows RT-based devices that will be coming to market.

Qualcomm’s unparalleled mobile expertise will enable developers to create amazing new consumer experiences for Windows RT devices.
