A First Look at Project xCloud Running on the Arm-Powered Surface X Pro

Recommended Posts


While Microsoft's Project xCloud game streaming platform is already available for Android devices, we've known that the company is also working on a Windows 10 version. What isn't know is when we can expect it to arrive, and this has been a question on the minds of PC gamers whose systems don't have enough power to play more demanding titles.

And while we still don't know when xCloud for the PC will be released, we can now at least see Project xCloud in action, thanks to Windows Central. Earlier today, the outlet released a short YouTube video that looks at Project xCloud running on Windows 10.

Interestingly, the video details xCloud running on a Microsoft Surface X Pro, which happens to be powered by an Arm processor, not a conventional x86 processor. When it comes to PC gaming, the market is dominated by x86, and the only way to play just about any PC game on the market with an Arm processor is to emulate x86.

Seeing Project xCloud playing a game that wouldn't be possible with the Surface X Pro is amazing in its own right. This means that if Microsoft continues to use ARM in upcoming hardware, it will be a viable option for gaming for Project xCloud.
