    Popular video editing app will get support for Snapdragon X Elite laptops

    The DaVinci Resolve app for Windows will get native support for ARM processors next year. The announcement was made by Dave Lebolt, Head of Strategy, DaVinci Systems, Blackmagic Design, at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Summit 2023 in Hawaii.

    According to the company, the performance of the DaVinci Resolve app for Windows with native support for processors based on the ARM architecture will run 1.7x faster on devices with these types of chipsets compared to devices with processors from Intel featuring 12-core CPUs and integrated GPU. Blackmagic Design also claims that the performance of the video editing app will be 3 times faster on devices with ARM processors that also have a neural processing unit (NPU).

    These results were achieved during testing. So, the final version of the app with native support for processors based on the ARM architecture could be even faster on devices with these types of chipsets.

    DaVinci Resolve currently performs very slow on ARM processors

    Since the current version of the DaVinci Resolve app for Windows does not have native support for ARM processors, its performance is so slow on devices with these types of chipsets that it is borderline unusable. However, when it gains native support for processors based on the ARM architecture, it will not only become usable but perform faster on devices with ARM chipsets than on devices featuring x86 processors from AMD and Intel.

    Typically, processors based on the ARM architecture consume less power and require less cooling compared to x86 processors, which paves the way for laptops that are thinner, lighter, and offer longer battery life. However, there are very few apps on Windows that offer native support for ARM processors. That means most apps on laptops with ARM processors will perform slowly.

    We've already reported that Samsung has confirmed that it is making a laptop that uses the Snapdragon X Elite processor, and we can see that laptop launch sometime in the second half of next year.

    This story continues after the video.

    Qualcomm is pushing developers to optimize Windows apps for ARM processors

    Qualcomm wants to change that to pave the way for the company’s chipsets based on the ARM architecture for Microsoft Windows. At the Snapdragon Summit 2023, Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon X Elite, the company’s fastest-ever chipset for Windows-powered devices.

    Qualcomm has shaken the PC industry with this SoC, as it is extremely efficient and powerful and packs a lot of features, beating not only the x86 processors from AMD and Intel but also the ARM processors from Apple, including the M1 and M2.
