Surface Pro X is the tweaked Snapdragon 8CX
Tuned up and rebranded
A Microsoft hardware event revealed the latest Intel, ARM and AMD based products and Surface Pro X based on ARM caught a lot of attentio. To set things straight, the Microsoft SQ1 is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8CX.
Qualcomm didn’t want to go on the record with Microsoft’s affairs, but industry sources we talked to have confirmed that Microsoft SQ1 is generally the same architecture as the Snapdragon 8CX. The 3GHz ARM processor with 2 TFLOPs of graphics power and an Adreno 685 GPU indicates that this is a faster version of what we know as Snapdragon 8CX.
Microsoft, on the other hand, is free to come to us with an official statement about this so that we can add more info at a later date. We don’t have a good (any) contact at the surface PR team. As our own Bobo pointed out, there is a 10 percent difference in Adreno 680 used on Snapdragon 8CX and Microsoft SQ1 ARM-based chip. If you look at the phones Snapdragon 855 is 10 percent faster than the Snapdragon 855 launched earlier this year and the same speed up was possible to achieve for the Microsoft's new Surface Qualcomm baby.
The story is even more compelling when you see the Cat 24 modem, something that Qualcomm announced for its Snapdragon 8CX platform at the launch event in December 2018. Microsoft clearly lists the modem as Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X24 LTE Modem, Up to Gigabit LTE Advanced Pro with nanoSIM and eSIM support. LTE Bands supported: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29, 30, 38, 39, 40, 41, 46, 66, Assisted GPS and GLONASS support. That gives you quite a compelling clue.
