Delphi XE7-8 on Intel Atom Z3795

I have a question for you:
Will a Delphi VCL Forms Application (32 or 64 bits) run on a Intel Atom
Z3795 with Windows 8.1 Pro?
Particularly in a HP ElitePad 1000 G2 - 10.1" - Atom Z3795 - Windows 8.1
Pro 64-bit . I suppose it would run, but I've no experience with this
processor.
Best Regards

Hello,

Intel Atom is a x86 compatible CPU so the answer should be: yes.

Thank you Marcus, but any one had done this?
There are some other issues to be considered, like Serial access (using
USB addaptor) and digital card support.
Before I purchase one tablet, I need to confirm that it runs a Delphi 32
application application and then test it's limitations.

Hello,

if you're using a USB adapter then use one with FTDI chip build in.
The driver is quite good and from FTDI there exists also a Delphi sample
about how to directly talk to it without going the RS232 emulation layer
route. The sample was formatted badly though the last time I saw it ;-)

What's digital card?

Limitation will be CPU speed and available RAM I guess.

Markus:
It's a collection of digital I/O Ports connected in this case, though a
USB Port to the computer. I often use:
The USB-1024HLS from Measurement Computing adds 24 bits of logic-level
digital I/O to any USB port. The unit’s high output current capability
(15 mA source, 64 mA sink) allows the USB-1024HLS to drive many logic
level devices directly and saves money by eliminating the need for
costly and cumbersome buffer circuitry. The device is fully USB plug and
play and easy to use. It obtains all required power from the USB port,
so no external power connection is ever required.
But that is for the second stage, and I already asked to the maker.
I'll research the FTDI chip adapter.
CPU speed and available RAM shouldn't be a concern. It's a very simple
application that runs a few queries against a MS-SQL Server, read a
couple of barcodes and open/closes a magnetic lock. That's all.
Best Regards.

I write point of sale software which targets Atom processors all the time,
apart from one maths difference between Atom and i3-7 - I've had no issues
at all with XE7/8 on Atom processors.

Just be ware that the memory/string speed on Atoms is abysmal.
