Has anyone installed Capture One on Snapdragon X laptops?

    So to answer my own question, it seems to work perfectly. I haven't done extensive testing, but no issues encountered. It feels pretty quick, but I haven't had time for any specific performance testing.

    Hi thanks for the feed back, would love to hear how is Capture one is doing with your X elite processor?

    Sure, I'd be happy to describe my experience. I was going to buy a Surface Pro like I usually do, but in the end decided that since I use the tablet functionality relatively infrequently, I'd get a laptop, so I bought the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7x. I installed Capture One with no issues, and then migrated my Catalog across from my desktop. That catalog has about 28,000 photos on, a mixture of Nikon, Sony A6600 photos (all RAWS) and phone photos (JPEG and RAWS). C1 opened the catalog without problem. I've now used C1 on ARM for 5 days or so, and only had very minor problems (see below). In terms of speed, it certainly feels more responsive than the Surface Pro 9 that I used to use. Errors I have found:

    1. When I first started, some seemingly random photos would show a bunch of false colors (from the Previews). I think this has something to do with the color space that the OLED screen has set up, which you can change. However it was very easy to simply undo the changes and then re-apply them, and it worked after that.

    2. Sometime when I start C1, I get that message about hardware acceleration being re-calculated, but its already at 100%, and disappears within a minute.

    3. And not C1s fault, but I use Topaz Labs Photo AI, and that won't install. I raised a support call, and they are looking into it, but I don't have a date as to when it will be resolved.

    That's great news, the only thing that stopping me now from getting this X elite is knowing for sure that Silverfast will work with my negative scanner, I do lots of film photography...
    thank you for the feed back

    Thanks for testing and sharing your results! Does tethering work? I remember when Lightroom classic on Apple silicon got released it took them a while to get the tethering working again.

    Sorry, I have never shot tethered. I'm just a happy amateur. I might have a go on the weekend if it will work with a Sony A6600.

    Thanks for your positive comments Ulrich. I have used C1 successfully with the catalogue on Surface Pro 5 with photos on an external SSD and have my eyes on a Surface Pro 11 or laptop equivalent as my Surface Pro is getting long in the tooth with an exhausted battery. It's good to know that all runs well on the Elite chipset.

    Yeah I haven't run into any more issues with C1. There is a bunch of other software and games that don't work with the CoPilot PC, but most things work fine. It will be interesting if a Windows ARM version of C1 is ever produced, how much faster it is...

    Yes, I presume that C1 currently works with the PRISM emulation feature on the Snapdragon chip. I doubt if the development of a native Windows ARM version of C1 is a high priority for Capture One.

    Hey Stuart, have a look at my post here about performance... Windows on ARM benchmarks (CoPilot+ PC performance) - Capture One

    Dom, I did get a chance to use CO & Lenovo Yoga Slim 7x during a shoot fully tethered and all. 

    No major issues to report works as you'd expect. I did feel like there was room for performance grains, so def want the ARM version ASAP. 

    Only minor issue and I was always able to reproduce it was when tethered the photo would come in like they were data corrupted. However when you zoomed a bit they were totally fine.

    Ha this is great. We are starting to get a real support group going here.
