Microsoft is about to release new Surface devices, namely the Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2, both with a matte colour option, and the Studio 2.
Surface Pro 6
Surface Pro 6 Tablet PC comes with Intel's latest eight-generation processors, which means quad-core processors, which produces a massive 67 percent better performance compared to its predecessor. The new device also has improved internal cooling and has the same 12.3-inch screen as before with a resolution of 2736 x 1824 pixels for a crisp, clear display.
It comes with a built-in Intel UHD Graphics 620 chip and the device is available with eight or 16 gigabytes of memory and an SSD up to a terabyte in size. Microsoft claims it can last up to 13.5 hours on its battery, which is impressive for a device weighing less than 800 grams. It comes with the usual connections, including USB 3.0, Display Port and a dock connector, but doesn't have USB C port.
The cheapest Surface Pro 6 with an Intel i5 will cost £879.00 and the i7 a mouthwatering £1,799.00.
Surface Laptop 2
The Surface Laptop 2 laptop, which, according to Microsoft, will be a gigantic 85 percent faster than the first version, primarily down to Intel's 8th generation processors. It also has the slimest LCD screen ever on a laptop.
Just like the Pro 6 there's no USB-C port on this model either. The screen is still 13.5 inches, but now has a 1500:1 contrast ratio, and Microsoft claims it can run for up to 14.5 hours on its battery.
Prices will start at £979.00 for the i5 model and up to £1,529.00 for the i7.
Surface Studio 2
Surface Studio 2 looks just like its predecessor, but according to Microsoft it's a different machine under the hood, producing much faster speeds. The updated screen has 38 percent more brightness and 22 percent more contrast, plus support for colour space DCI-P3. Graphics are provided by Nvidia's Pascal architecture. The storage has been changed from hybrid to pure SSD and can be obtained up to two terabytes in size.
The price starts at $3,500.
