UI slower on the X than the S?

I noticed that my P85D Model S loaner had a significantly more responsive UI than the one on my Model X, despite the relative youth of the X. Maps was the primary workload: scrolling, pinching, rotating. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it possible that the Model X is emulating an older processor, or is this something that should get looked at by service?
 
I believe they've been using Tegra 3 since the first model S and did not change the platform so far. A quick Sunspider on the web browser should give all of us, X and S, around 4000 ms (I tried on a X last week and it gave me the same score than my 2014 S). From a dev point of view it makes sense to keep the same platform instead of creating multiple branches for the OS but it's true that it is getting long in the tooth...

If you search the forums you will find that someone ran speed tests on the browser and found them to be identical.

That could well be. I don't use the browser. I imagine it's speed is usually dominated by LTE, wifi, and/or speed of remote websites.

My experience derives solely from manipulating maps, where the X is slower. In my tests, the map was already fully downloaded. So odd, isn't it?

Try manipulating the maps in half screen mode not in full screen, does that help?
