10-core Snapdragon X Plus surfaces, will ship on the Surface Pro 10 OLED

While Microsoft is gearing up for its Windows on ARM event on May 20, Qualcomm is preparing the processors that will power that revolution.

The flagship in that new line of silicon is the Snapdragon X Elite but it has a sidekick - the Snapdragon X Plus. Today, we have our first solid information about the latter chip.

The Snapdragon X Plus surfaced in a Geekbench DirectML benchmark on a device codenamed OEMMN. There's no room for interpretation on the chip's part - it's plainly named - the Snapdragon X Plus or X1P64100.

The Qualcomm Oryon CPU is a 10-core unit with a max clock speed of 3.42GHz, and two clusters - of 6 performance cores and 4 efficiency cores. It's a different configuration from the X Elite, which has 12 identical cores with two being higher-clocked at 4.3GHz. Another difference is that the Plus has a built-in X65 modem, while the X Elite has an external one.

There's 16GB of RAM and the test machine is running Windows 11 Pro Insider Preview.

The machine in question bears the model name OEMMN, which the report claims is the Microsoft Surface 10 Pro OLED.

Microsoft unveiled the Intel Core Ultra-powered 2-in-1 on March 21, but will reportedly unveil its OLED counterpart with ARM-based silicon on May 20, at its AI event.

I hope there will be an ARM version of the Surface Go 4 too.

Well yes, but actually no. I have an MBA M1, and I hate the fact that it's fanless, because it keeps heating up after many time everytime I just render my 1080p video on it or just playing a game with emulator on it. "There's a MB...

True. ARM might better in most usage, except when it comes to gaming or as a processor in PC. Yes, PC. There's a reason why PC is still more popular than Mac Pro/Mac Studio.
