    Lol @sonichedgehog360, looks like "Surface Pro X" just time-warped here (minus the TB3 part :p).

    Ok @desertlap, time to fess up. What's the deal with this "SQ1" chip? MS gets special dibs from Qualcomm? 8cx already obsolete?

    SQ1 - getting into its own silicon? 7W?

    It has a custom Microsoft SQ1 chipset. It is a Qualcomm custom chip. Normally, these chips are 2-watts. This is 7-watts with three times the performance per watt of the Surface Pro 6. It has other custom IP that he cannot mention. I wonder if AMD is somehow involved...

    This is waaaay over due. We've been wondering when someone would actually do this, e.g ARM chips have always been power conserving first. Nice to see it "unshackled"

    Associate that card with Microsoft Pay and use that to make the payment. Boom!

    Adobe Creative Cloud is optimized for Surface Pro X and, therefore, Qualcomm's custom ARM chip. That... speaks... volumes.
