Windows RT demoed on TI OMAP 4470 hardware, runs like clockwork
Soon after Microsoft announced its pair of tablets, NVIDIA confirmed that the Windows RT Surface model had a Tegra chip humming inside. That doesn't mean, however, that the platform does not get along well with ARM-based silicon from other makers. In fact, here is a demonstration of an OMAP 4470 chipset by Texas Instrument handling Windows RT without breaking a sweat.

Toshiba demonstrated its upcoming Windows RT devices at Computex 2012, including a tablet and a touchscreen laptop powered by a TI OMAP 4470 chip, and the fluidity exhibited by the platform's interface is quite impressive. That smoothness is achieved not only thanks to the two ARM A9 cores that can go up to 1.8GHz, but also because the PowerVR SGX544 GFX complements the chipset.

Now feel free to check out the video below and tell us what you think about the demonstration. Are you excited to see how Windows RT will perform under real life conditions?
