    Surface Pro X - Compatibility with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate

    Hi,

    Pretty much not going to happen. The Surface Pro X uses an ARM processor SOC (System on a chip). It's completely different hardware architecture to your typical PC which uses X64 hardware.

    If that was too much of a technical explanation, the Pro X hardware is basically high end Tablet or phone hardware. The Pro X has more in common with an iPad than a PC. Yes it runs Windows 10 because Windows 10 now also runs on ARM, but games need an Intel
    or AMD based processor, which the Surface Pro X does not use.

    Hope that helps explain things.

    Some questions before purchase

    I dived a little deeper into why I am interested in an X Box One S in the first place and perhaps I should first better explore how it is compared to gaming on my Surface Pro 2017 i5/8/256. Therefore I also created a topic on Surfaceforums.net specifically
    for that. Let me share that here as well:

    Hi,

    I have a Surface Pro 2017 i5/8/256 and I am looking for ways to start casual gaming.

    [...]

    Main advantage would be I keep my accomplishments and I can play strategy games using mouse and keyboard.

    Main question is: how is gaming on an X Box One S compared to gaming on a Surface Pro 2017 i5/8/256?
    Thanks in advance for you responses!
    Well, I own a first Generation Surface Pro and a Xbox One and Xbox One X at home.

    First of all, be aware that the Surface Pro "only" has the processor internal Intel Graphics, that are unsuitable for very "modern" games. However, you mention "casual" games and Assassins Creed, which is comparably old and from the Xbox 360 era (unless
    you mean the modern Assassins Creeds like Origin and the likes).

    My old first generation Surface Pro is perfectly capable of playing casual games, and older 3D games like Portal 2 and various other "classic" Steam games.

    It really depends on the graphical complexity of the game. While you can't expect to be able to run Forza Horizon 4 on your Surface Pro, 3D games from the Xbox 360 time era (i.e. up to about 2010-ish) should more or less work on your Surface. When it comes
    to casual games or Strategy games which are less graphics intensive your Surface should work as well. Your mileage may vary however, depending on how high you'll turn up the graphical settings.

    As for the Xbox One S: The Xbox One has a custom SoC (System on a Chip) that combines graphics hardware and main CPU, similar to the Intel i5 processor of your Surface, with the difference, that it's an AMD processor, and a much more powerful graphics hardware
    comparable to a dedicated graphics card in a desktop PC or the Surface Book's power base.

    Therefore the Xbox One S is still capable of running more modern games like the just released Forza Horizon 4 for example, while your Intel graphics chip in the Surface wouldn't. But you would be able to stream these games from the Xbox One to your Surface
    no problem, as the Xbox would do the heavy lifting of the 3D graphics, and then sending a compressed video stream to your Surface, where the Surface simply has to decompress a 2D Video stream instead of complex real time 3D graphics.

    Hello Davide,

    Thanks for reaching out to the forums. If this is your first time getting Ultimate game pass, you should have total of 9 months of ultimate. If it isn't it will pro rate the gold subscription to Ultimate which is around 2-3 months. You can view the

    Thanks,

    Brad
