Although Microsoft’s attempts bring ARM based PC didn’t go according to plans, it hasn’t stopped the company from working on similar products. Earlier last month, Microsoft announced Surface Pro X which uses custom Microsoft SQ1 chipset that is comparable to Core i5. While we will have to wait to see if the new device lives up to the expectations, Surface Pro X is now available in case you are interested in getting one.
In case you didn’t know, Microsoft SQ1 chipset is a custom version of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8cx chipset. This chipset comes with higher clock speed and different GPU. Moreover, the device comes with 16GB RAM. However, the latest device contains narrow bezels and slimmer design compared to other Surface Pro devices. Microsoft managed to achieve this as the processor allows fanless design.
The Surface Pro X starts at $999 for the base model that comes with 8GB RAM and 28GB SSD. If you need more power, you can get 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD for $1,799.
If you want to purchase the device, you can head to Microsoft Store.
