Microsoft launched Surface Pro X (2020), here is its price, specs and release date. Microsoft has just released the specs of its new convertible tablet. The most striking feature of this computer is its CPU. And it is not an x86 processor designed by Intel or AMD, but an ARM chip designed by Microsoft itself in close collaboration with Qualcomm. The introduction of this CPU seeks to increase the autonomy of this Surface Pro X beyond what the convertibles of this family with x86 processor propose. In fact, the product that Microsoft announces is juicy enough to leave behind the autonomy of the original model.

The specs of this convertible are essentially the same as the original version, with one important exception: this Surface Pro X debuts the SQ 2 CPU, a revision of the microprocessor built into the first model that, according to Microsoft, proposes a higher performance/watt ratio, especially in multitasking usage scenarios.
Its screen uses a 13-inch IPS PixelSense LCD panel with a 3:2 aspect ratio and has 2,880 x 1,920 resolution. The screen has a density of 267 dots per inch. On the other hand, this equipment will be available with two main memory configurations: 8GB and 16GB LPDDR4x. So far, beyond the CPU, there are no changes compared to the original Surface Pro X.
There are no changes with graphics too. If we pass on the wireless connectivity, this version does not introduce any changes compared to the first Surface Pro X. It also offers us WiFi 5, Bluetooth 5.0 and LTE connectivity (the integrated modem is the Snapdragon X24 LTE developed by Qualcomm). It is a pity that Microsoft did not take advantage of the tuning of this convertible to introduce the much more attractive WiFi 6 connectivity.
