Surface Laptop 6 on GeekBench with Snapdragon X Elite

Qualcomm is in the process of developing two fresh chips, namely the Snapdragon X Elite and Snapdragon X Plus, aiming to provide Windows users a compelling reason to stick with their devices instead of transitioning to MacBooks equipped with Apple Silicon.

Snapdragon X Elite Chip Details

Rumors had circulated previously suggesting that the Surface Laptop 6 would incorporate Qualcomm's new Snapdragon X Elite chip. Recent reports unveil a mysterious device labeled as “OEMBR OEMBR” (potentially the Surface Laptop 6) operating on the Snapdragon X Elite X1E80100, as spotted on a GeekBench listing.

Snapdragon X Elite Variants

The “X Elite” chip is available in three distinct versions – X1E-84-100, X1E-80-100, and X1E-78-100. These variations exhibit similarities with slight discrepancies in CPU and GPU frequencies.

Performance Insights

Test results of the Snapdragon X Elite X1E80100 on the speculated Surface Laptop 6 have been disclosed, displaying single-core and multi-core scores.

The single-core and multi-core test scores hovered around 2700 and 14000, respectively. Notably, the test mentioned a “Balanced” power plan, hinting that with adequate cooling, performance might scale even higher. However, uncertainties persist regarding the test environment, where variables like cooling mechanisms and ambient temperature could significantly impact results, warranting cautious optimism towards peak performance.

Potential Competitiveness

Comparatively, the numbers illustrating the Surface Laptop 6's capabilities suggest it could potentially rival the Apple MacBook Pro equipped with the M3 Pro chip.

Chip Details and Specifications

The chip is identified as “snapdragon (1m) 8cx gen 3,” purportedly employed as an anti-leak measure. Such practices have been previously attributed to Microsoft. Reports from Windows Latest affirm the chip’s identity as the Snapdragon X Elite. The device's model number, previously linked with the Surface Laptop 6, indicates that the Snapdragon X Elite boasts 12 Qualcomm Oryon CPU cores and comes equipped with 16GB of RAM.

Microsoft's Prior Releases

Microsoft had previously introduced the Business edition of the Surface Laptop 6 and Surface Pro 10, featuring Intel Core Ultra 5 and Core Ultra 7 chips.
