Microsoft has once again proved to the world it is worthy of the name Tech Giant. At Microsoft WinHEC (Windows Hardware Engineering Community) 2016 event in Shenzhen, China, Microsoft’s Terry Myerson and Qualcomm’s Cristiano Amon together demonstrated Windows 10 running smoothly on a demo device powered by Snapdragon 820 processor.
In the video below you will see how a proto-type laptop running Windows 10 and powered by Snapdragon 820 smoothly runs exact version of Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Office apps and Windows games running on your PC, isn’t that great?
Microsoft makes it clear that the demo device is running the full 64-bit version of Windows 10 Enterprise Edition and so will some phones by June 2017.

According to Qualcomm’s Cristiano Amon,
Qualcomm Snapdragon processors offer one of the world’s most advanced mobile computing features, including Gigabit LTE connectivity, advanced multimedia support, machine learning and superior hardware security features, all while supporting thin, fan-less designs and long battery life.
