Microsoft today announced Visual Studio 2022 version with native Arm64 support.
At the same time, the public was shown an Arm processor-based device being developed under the codename Project Volterra.
Developers promise to release a preview version of Visual Studio 2022 for Arm \"in the next few weeks,\" with a full release later this year.Image source: MicrosoftAlthough Arm devices such as the Surface Pro X tablet have been able to run Visual Studio via x64 emulation before, some features remain unavailable and overall performance is lost during emulation.
To fix this, Microsoft created a \"native Arm toolchain,\" which includes a number of useful tools: full versions of Visual Studio 2022 and VS Code, Visual C++, current versions of .NET6 and Java, the classic .NET Framework, Windows Terminal, and Windows Subsystem for Linux and Windows Subsystem for Android to run Linux and Android software products.Along with this it was announced the signing of a new partnership agreement with Qualcomm.
The cooperation, codenamed Project Volterra, creates a device for developers based on the Snapdragon Arm-processor and some kind of neural processor (NPU), which will simplify the process of creating cloud applications with support for algorithms based on artificial intelligence.
At this stage, Microsoft did not disclose the specifications of the device, but it is known that it has three USB-connectors on the back of the case, as well as one DisplayPort and one Ethernet connector.
On the side of the case there are two USB Type-C ports.
It is also known that the body of the device is made of recycled plastic.
\"We want you to create cloud applications with artificial intelligence.
With the arrival of Arm64 support in Visual Studio, .NET and Project Volterra coming later this year, we are releasing new tools to help you take the first step in that direction,\" said Microsoft product director Panos Panay.
