Another novelty from Microsoft is the updated Surface Pro X, which runs on an ARM processor.
Speaking of processor, it now uses an improved SQ2 chip with Adreno 690 graphics. Microsoft again partnered with Qualcomm during its development and, by and large, this is a custom version of the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G chipset, but without 5G support. According to the company, it provides better performance in many applications, and thanks to its energy efficiency, the battery life is up to 15 hours.
As in last year’s model, a 13 ″ PixelSense touchscreen display with a resolution of 2880×1920 pixels and an aspect ratio of 3: 2 is used. The RAM can be installed 16 GB (LPDDR4X), the capacity of the SSD-drive is 256 GB or 512 GB.
The device is equipped with Wi-Fi 5 modules, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, LTE-modem (there is a slot for nanoSIM), 10 MP main camera and 5 MP front camera, 2 W stereo speakers. There are two USB-C ports, a Surface Connect connector for charging, and a Surface Keyboard port. Also note that the device is now offered in a new platinum color (previously it was only in black) and new keyboard colors are available (red, blue, platinum and black).
The updated Microsoft Surface Pro X is offered in configurations with 16GB RAM / 256GB SSD for $ 1499 and 16GB RAM / 512GB SSD for $ 1799. But the first generation is also available for $ 999 (SQ1, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD) or $ 1299 (SQ1, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD). By the way, you can see a review of last year’s Surface Pro X at this link.
