Microsoft Bringing x86 Emulation to ARM64 Systems in Fall 2017

A number of signs are pointing to Microsoft working on x86 emulation for ARM64 based systems, a feature that would allow native x86 applications to run on ARM64 systems. Indications are pointing to the feature being included in Redstone 3 for Windows 10 in Fall 2017. Windows 10 currently offers Continuum, which only allows users to run the Universal Windows Platform. A new bit of code was discovered that indicates that the feature has a new codename, CHPE, with the meaning of the full acronym remaining unknown. Sources indicate that the C stands for Cobalt, while speculation points to Hewlett Packard and E indicates emulation. HP was been "working increasingly closely with Microsoft on its Windows 10 PCs and the HP Elite x3 Windows Phone," and users of HP devices would likely benefit from running needed business applications on device rather than through remote software such as Citrix.
