Ever since Apple released a MacBook with its own ARM-based Apple M1 chip, users have been trying to run Windows on this machine. Now, because Microsoft doesn’t license its operating system to run on devices other than its Surface line and other manufacturers that use ARM-based systems, it’s completely impossible to run Windows using Apple’s Bootcamp.
However, many engineers have tried other ways to run Windows on Apple M1 devices, and recently an AWS engineer had success when he managed to run Microsoft OS on M1 powered devices.
Overview of Apple’s M1 Chip Running Windows 10 Faster Than Surface Pro X
Now, it is impossible to run Windows on the M1-based Macbook Air, Macbook Pro, and the latest Mac Mini. As Apple’s SVP points out, it depends on Microsoft to allow their OS to run on the latest Apple computers. Moreover, the USA’s leading app development agency mentioned that the latest Apple M1 device is quite capable of running Microsoft software.
Apple devices running Windows 10 scored a single-core score of 1288 and a multi-core score of 5685. On the other hand, Microsoft’s Surface device running the latest Windows version only scored 800 and 3000 for single-core and multi-core. -core each one.
Hence, this score indicates that the Microsoft operating system runs better on Apple’s new M1 device than its Surface device.

As one can see below the listed table, states Windows 10 on the Apple M1 device attain for the single-core benchmark is 1,317 and 5,685 for the multi-core. On the other hand, the Surface Pro X only scores for a single core is approx 751 and for multi-core is 2,891.

Magic of Apple M1
That’s a little embarrassing for Microsoft. Still, the M1 is the cutting edge piece of silicon, and perhaps more precisely, the results underline this, and just how far Apple has pushed with this chip that powers its new MacBook.
Zazz recorded the user’s reactions saying they were very impressed with the performance of Apple’s new hardware itself, and indeed the MacBook Air. However, it occupied the top position in the list of best laptops when it was released.
The M1 machines use Rosetta 2 technology to effectively translate applications written for Intel chips to run on new ARM hardware, and it performs very well. In our review of the new M1, we tried old and new apps coded for Intel CPUs, and they worked well when running on the M1 without a noticeable difference in performance levels.
