Microsoft: Windows 10 Smartphones With Octa-Core SoC Expected To Arrive Soon

microsoft windows 10Microsoft will be bringing Octa-core processors and very powerful GPUs to its Windows 10 based-smartphones and tablets soon. According to the GDC (Game Developers Conference) session on March 6 titled “Sustained Gaming Performance in Multi-Core Mobile Devices (Presented by Microsoft) its clearly explains that the Windows 10 phones and tablets with Octa-Core processors and powerful GPUs to arrive soon”.

Particularly to gaming, the a period is for developers to learn how to develop games that make use of the powerful hardware without to function the throttling required by mobile devices with passive cooling. The post points to the allow of flagship Windows 10 smartphones and tablets later this year, which fits in with a previous report that pegged the next flagship to launch in September 2015.

It’s worth noting that the firm last week also mentioned that not all Windows Phone smartphones to receive the Windows 10 update. So far, only 3 devices are confirmed for the OS update those includes the Lumia 435,  the selfie-happy Lumia 735, and the Lumia 930.

A GDC session of 30-minutes will be held by Iulian Calinov, Lead Program Manager at Microsoft. The whole post says, “Modern mobile devices and smartphones are reaching the computing capabilities reserved until recently for desktop PCs. Windows 10 phones and tablets with 8 CPUs and very powerful GPUs are expected soon. Despite significant progress in reducing power consumption these devices are able to draw more power under sustained load than can be safely dissipated with current passive cooling technologies. Windows 10 and the hardware it runs on are designed to safely handle such situations, mostly by reducing the system performance – which could affect game-play negatively. Learn to counter this effect by designing games that achieve sustained thermal-to-quality tradeoffs in these systems.”
