Android Apps Work Great on Windows

In the Geekbench benchmark database, there are numerous results of testing the performance of Android applications running on Windows using the new Windows Subsystem for Android utility. This method works even better than previously thought.

It is assumed that the Windows Subsystem for Android will be based on the Windows Subsystem for Linux – a subsystem in Windows 10 for running Linux applications. The latter is based on virtualization and emulation technologies, which traditionally lead to increased load on system resources, which leads to performance problems.

Considering that Windows Subsystem for Android will run on top of Windows Subsystem for Linux running on top of Windows 11, nothing good can be expected from such a solution. However, Geekbench benchmarks dispel those doubts. The results shown in the screenshot can be compared with the performance of last year’s flagship smartphones Samsung Galaxy S20, OnePlus 8, OPPO Find X2 Pro and other devices based on Snapdragon 865.

Apparently, Windows Subsystem for Android emulates Android apps to run on a device with a Qualcomm processor. It is important to note that all of these conclusions are based only on preliminary information, and the function of compatibility with Android applications itself will not be available in Windows 11 for the release in October
