The Surface Pro X is powered by Microsoft’s first in-house processor
Microsoft updates its 2-in-1 portfolio with an updated Surface Pro 7 and an all-new Surface Pro X. The Surface Pro 7 now comes with 10th-generation Intel Core Processors, USB-C and USB-A connectivity. You still get a 12.3-inch PixelSense display with the Surface Pro 7, along with a rated 13.5-hour battery life.
The Surface Pro X, on the other hand, is Microsoft’s “thinnest, lightest, most powerful and most connected Surface Pro ever.” It is also the first Surface Pro to be powered by an ARM processor with Microsoft’s in-house SQ1 processor. Co-designed with Qualcomm, the SQ1 can push 2 teraflops of graphics processing power and is Qualcomm’s most powerful PC processor to date.
While the Surface Pro X has the chassis of a 12-inch, you get a 13-inch PixelSense display with 33% slimmer bezels compared to the Surface Pro 7. In addition, the Surface Pro X has an access cover for upgrading the SSD—a first for any Surface Pro model.
The Surface Pro 7 starts at $749(~Php 39k) for the Core i3/4GB/128GB configuration, while the Surface Pro X starts at $999(~Php 52k) for the 8GB/128GB variant. Both are currently available for pre-order.
