Unknown Microsoft device on Snapdragon 8cx Plus ARM processor noted in Geekbench


Apple recently announced its desire to upgrade to its own ARM processors in new Mac computers. It seems that she is not the only one. Microsoft is also looking for a way to transfer at least some of its products to ARM chips, but at the expense of third-party processor manufacturers.

The network has data on the model of a Surface Pro tablet computer, built on the basis of the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, but at the same time running on the Windows 10 operating system.

Information shared resource Windows Latestwho discovered in the Geekbench 5 synthetic test database a device codenamed “OEMSR OEMSR Product Name DV”. The name itself does not say anything, but according to the resource, we are talking about one of the future modifications of the Surface Pro X tablet computer. The source suggests that the device is built on the basis of a processor with model number SC8180XP. Earlier leaks reported that this name hides the unannounced Snapdragon 8cx Plus chip, designed for portable platforms running the Windows 10 operating system.

Qualcomm back in 2018 introduced the Snapdragon 8cx processor with four high-performance Kryo 495 Gold cores with a frequency of up to 2.84 GHz and four Kryo 495 Silver cores with a frequency of up to 1.8 GHz. The fact that the new leak refers to the updated Snapdragon 8cx Plus chip model is indicated by at least a higher clock frequency, the value of which is at the level of 3.15 GHz.

Unfortunately, the information contained in the Geekbench 5 database does not provide more detailed details about the new device from Microsoft, but reports that the system uses 16 GB of RAM. In addition, it is indicated that in the single-threaded test the device scored 789 points, in the multi-threaded test – 3092. By the way, the Apple Developer Transition Kit based on the Apple A12Z ARM chip demonstrates similar performance indicators.
