Pictures of Xiaomi running Windows 11 have just been released. Other than the lack of GPU drivers, it seems that the operating system on the Pad 5 works well. However, as the GeekBench benchmark score shows, the performance of Windows 11 on this tablet has been slightly affected.
According to Notebook, although Windows 11 has a relatively strict set of prerequisites, it installs and runs amazingly well on a variety of devices. We have already seen this operating system run on various devices, including the Pixel 6 and Surface Duo. Now a Chinese developer has successfully installed Windows 11 on the Xiaomi Pad 5.
The released screenshots show a Windows 11 application desktop running on the Xiaomi iPad 5. High-usage applications seem to work well on this device, however, GPU performance has been disrupted due to a lack of drivers, a problem that has affected the smooth running of some parts of Windows 11 on the iPad 5. The Mead 5’s single-core, multi-core performance scores on the Geekbench benchmark are 456 and 1992, respectively, which is slightly lower than the Snapdragon 860 765 and 2712 scores, respectively.
The Renegade project also provides a complete guide to how to install Windows 11 on smartphones. However, the method proposed by this project only works for a handful of devices equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chip, including the OnePlus 6T. The following is a list of devices that support this project. Of course, you should note that this list is probably a bit outdated; Therefore, it is better to see the project gateway page to get the updated list.
