It’s been a while since any company has released a Windows tablet with an ARM-based processor. But according to benchmark results that showed up at the GFXBench website, it looks like there could be a new ARM-based Windows tablet on the way.
The tablet is said to feature a high-resolution display, a speedy Qualcomm processor, and Windows software.
That’s led some folks to speculate that this could be a successor to the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet or Microsoft’s Surface RT.
Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 10 operating system is designed to run on a wide range of devices including smartphones and tablets with small screens and ARM processors and devices with very, very big screens like the 84 inch Microsoft Surface Hub.
The company has said existing tablets that run Windows RT will not be update to run Windows 10. But they will receive some Windows 10 features through an upcoming software update.
But it’s entirely possible that Microsoft or another PC maker could be working on a new ARM-based tablet that will run Windows 10. And that might be what’s showing up at GFXBench.
The tablet in question is said to have a 10.1 inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor with Adreno 420 graphics, and 64GB of storage.
