Yes. My bet is that in the long run, you won't be able to tell them 
apart, except that AlphaX should run faster than AlphaTK. You likely 
won't notice the difference, but that will likely be it. They have 
different cores, but the scripting on the top is the same (modes and 

AlphaTK can be used on other platforms, AlphaX cannot.

Differences that currently exist, I can't comment on, since I don't have 
AlphaX. However, I expect the differences to diminish over time.
