When inspiration strikes, capture your great ideas with XP-PEN. Its design upholds our mission to create products that transfer the feeling of using traditional tools to the digital world. We continue to preserve the classics of the past, innovate the methods of the present, and set new standards for the future, making technology more natural and creativity more powerful.

The introduction of the X3 Smart Chip begins the third chapter for the XP-PEN stylus: that of smart chip technology. Although the X3 is tiny, it is made with sophisticated technology that dramatically upgrades the performance and structure of the stylus. Our mission is to create artistic digitizers that give you a feeling as real and natural as working with a traditional tool. We have maintained that goal throughout the design process for the X3 Smart Chip, resulting in an X3 stylus that feels almost exactly like using a traditional brush. X3 Smart Chip technology, infinite possibilities!


Key features of X3 Smart Chip

More sensitive. True digital signal technology. A 10-fold* increase in IAF sensitivity.

The new X3 Smart Chip accurately processes electromagnetic signals by encoding them into digital data. This change increases 10-fold* the sensitivity of the initial activation force (IAF to under three grams*), so your artwork can be produced with a featherlight stroke.

More realistic. The shortest retraction distance yet. Feels real and natural.

The previous stylus design detected pressure through its inner spring mechanism. The tip moved up and down during the creation process, disrupting the brushstroke control. Now, the X3 Smart Chip with its powerful computing ability gives the stylus an improved sensor structure. This change reduces the retraction distance to 0.6 mm*, resulting in a steady brushstroke without wobble.

Improved stability. The steady nib ensures a stable performance.

Powered by the X3 Smart Chip, without the spring mechanism, the stylus performs better than any other existing XP-PEN stylus. With its 8192 pressure sensitivity levels and a 60-degree tilt function, you will have easy, intuitive control while creating artwork.

Improved durability. Twice* as durable as the previous stylus.

Thanks to the overall design of the X3 Smart Chip, the new stylus greatly optimizes its inner structure and eliminates the consumable spring components of previous designs. The new design will approximately double* the life span of the stylus.

Perfect performance. Reduces all signal interference. resulting in clear. dependable lines.

The X3 Smart Chip is the first of its kind to be designed with a digital signal processing mechanism. The digital technology is a huge advance on previous analog designs, meaning it offers the clearest, most dependable signal ever.

The birth of the X3 Smart Chip tells a revolutionary technological breakthrough. XP-PEN has always been paying attention to users' needs and committed to offering reliable product service, value-for-money experience, and inspiration from trend-setting design. With us, more designers and enthusiasts will be able to create and express, freely and truly.
