Microsoft has announced 'Project Volterra', an ARM-based mini PC that will be offered to developers for testing new AI capabilities; as well as, support for Windows 11 on ARM.

We are excited to announce Project Volterra, a new device powered by the Snapdragon compute platform. With Project Volterra you will be able to explore many AI scenarios via the new Qualcomm Neural Processing SDK for Windows toolkit announced today by Qualcomm Technologies. And because we expect to see NPUs being built into most, if not all, future computing devices, we’re going to make it easy for developers to leverage these new capabilities, by baking support for NPUs into the end-to-end Windows platform.

Microsoft also announced a comprehensive end-to-end Arm-native toolchain for Arm native apps, including:

● Full Visual Studio 2022 & VSCode
● Visual C++
● Modern .NET 6 and Java
● Classic .NET Framework
● Windows Terminal
● WSL and WSA for running Linux and Android apps

The first preview of many of these tools will be available in the next few weeks. In addition, the company says it's hard at work helping many open-source projects natively target Arm including Python, Node, git, LLVM, and more.

Notably, Microsoft has yet to allow M1 Macs to natively run Windows for ARM. We're hopeful this push towards ARM support could make that a more real possibility.

There's no details yet on pricing or availability of the dev kit but more details can be found in the full announcement linked below...
