NVIDIA announced its Windows 8 Developer Program to provide developers with tools and resources for building applications for the hundreds of millions of ARM and x86-based devices that will take advantage of Microsoft’s operating system, Windows 8.
All four NVIDIA processor brands will support Windows 8. NVIDIA’s next-generation, quad-core Tegra® processor, code-named Project Kal-El, is an ARM-based system on a chip that will power lightweight, energy-efficient tablets and notebooks. NVIDIA will also support Windows 8 on x86 systems with its GeForce GPUs, which deliver the best gaming experience; Quadro GPUs, the leading graphics solution for film-makers and other professional workstation users; and Tesla® GPUs, which provide breakthrough performance for scientific research, data centers, and high performance computing.
With more than 15 years of experience supporting Microsoft Corp. and the Windows operating system, NVIDIA has created robust tools, utilities, samples and SDKs specifically designed to assist developers in creating applications that shine on Windows. The Windows 8 Developer Program will provide developers with support and resources for software designed to run on ARM and x86-based solutions, along with access to the latest news, training and education.
