Key notes

  • New website checks game compatibility for Windows on Arm laptops.
  • Games listed as Perfect, Playable, Runs, or Unplayable based on performance.
  • Popular titles like PUBG currently unplayable, but Warframe runs flawlessly.

A new website called WorksonWoa.com (Works on Windows on Arm) has launched to help you determine if your favorite games will run smoothly on the upcoming Windows on Arm laptops powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X Series chips.

This shift from traditional x86 processors to Arm-based ones marks a big change in the laptop market. While Qualcomm previously said their laptops can run PC games without porting to ARM, WorksonWoa offers a more realistic picture.

The website, developed by Linaro has a database of over 1,000 games categorized based on their compatibility with Windows on Arm:

  • Perfect: These games run flawlessly at 60+ FPS in 1080p resolution without any glitches or issues.
  • Playable: The games function, but performance might not be ideal.
  • Runs: The games launch but may encounter bugs or limitations.
  • Unplayable: These games are incompatible due to anti-cheat software restrictions or other technical hurdles.

Unfortunately, popular titles like PUBG: Battlegrounds, League of Legends, and Fortnite currently fall under the “Unplayable” category. However, games like Warframe and Vampire Survivors are listed as “Perfect.”

It’s important to note that the website’s data is based on testing and might not reflect every specific machine configuration. WorksonWoa.com encourages user contributions to improve accuracy and help others make informed decisions.

With the launch of WorksonWoa.com, gamers have a valuable tool to navigate the compatibility landscape of Windows on Arm laptops. This website’s community-driven approach can play an important role in the smooth gaming experience on these new devices.
