Microsoft’s new Surface Pro X Revealed with Snapdragon 8CX Gen3 Chip


Microsoft is preparing to launch a new Surface Pro X with Windows 11 and a MacBook with apple’s own chips, according to foreign media reports.

The new Surface Pro X, whose GeekBench performance has been revealed, is powered by a Snapdragon 8CX Gen3 processor.

The machine’s ID is “OEMVL OEMVL, “a naming scheme that has previously been used by Microsoft for the Surface Pro line, Surface Laptop, Surface Book and even Surface Go. It’s pretty much the 2022 Surface Pro X.

The new Surface Pro X has a single-core score of 1005 points and a multi-core score of 5,574 points. The results were significantly higher when compared to the Surface Pro X with the SQ2 processor, which successfully scored 806 points on single-core and 3,247 points on multi-core. But the performance was nowhere near as good as Apple’s M1 chip.

It’s worth noting that when benchmarking results were compared with Intel Core I7 1165G7, the new Surface Pro X significantly outperformed Intel chips in multi-core tests.

Given that the new Surface Pro X was benchmarked at an early stage of development, the machine may not end up on the market, but the Surface Pro X with the SQ3 processor is still expected to ship later this year.
