Project Volterra: Microsoft announces Windows 11 on ARM developer kit with Qualcomm SoC

    What you need to know:

    • Microsoft has unveiled its first Windows on ARM devkit.
    • It’s powered by a Snapdragon SoC and will be coming later this year.
    • It features a built-in NPU, and is similar in shape and size to a Mac mini.

    Microsoft has announced new hardware at Build 2022! Given that Build is a developer conference, it should come as no surprise to hear that the hardware being announced today is a developer kit designed to help devs to build apps that take advantage of new AI capabilities via an onboard neural processing unit (NPU,) as well as add support for Windows 11 on ARM.

    The developer kit is called “Project Volterra,” and is powered by an as-yet unnamed Snapdragon processor. The device is a mini-desktop PC, similar in shape and size to that of a Mac mini or the base of a Surface Studio, just without the display attached. This developer kit is also Microsoft’s first “desktop” PC, though it doesn’t plan to sell the device as a consumer product.
