Microsoft to mix Intel’s Floor Professional X ARM and Floor Professional 9 below one product line

Microsoft plans to merge the Surface Pro X and Surface Pro “9” under the same product line later this fall in a bid to help normalize Windows on ARM offerings. According to my sources, the company will offer the Surface Pro 9 in both ARM and Intel configurations, with the ARM variant powered by a dedicated Snapdragon 8cx Gen3 SoC, dubbed Microsoft SQ3.

The move comes after the company announced its first Windows on ARM desktop PCs in the form of a developer kit dubbed “Project Volterra,” which I think features the Snapdragon 8cx Gen3 SoC and includes the same neural processing unit (NPU) AI features and power that is expected to ship on the Surface Pro 9 with ARM.
