So the DTK with a two year old iPad chip runs x86_64 code, in emulation, faster than the Surface Pro X runs it natively 😅 Oh boy Qualcomm, what are you even doing? https://twitter.com/jfpoole/status/1277627845335007232

Qualcomm 🤭

It might due to Windows issues, didn’t not optimize for ARM.

No doubt Apple A chips always run faster than others.

Recently hooked up my 2 year old iPad Pro to an external monitor together with a set of KB and mouse.

Met with much restrictions but basic task like listening to music/ms office/YouTube/web surfing. The speed and experience is crazily good and fast.

Outlook/Microsoft teams speed is faster than a workstation (Windows 10) with 16 cores
