Microsoft announced the Surface Studio at a special Windows 10 event on October 2016. Since then, Microsoft has not updated the hardware even once. There were rumours of a new Surface Studio 2 code-named Capitola being worked on and heading to market either this year or next. Some evidence pointed to us that it may be coming sooner rather than later is that all models of the Surface Studio, from the cheapest to the most expensive, are currently sold out at the Microsoft Store.
Today, the benchmarks of Microsoft’s upcoming Surface Studio 2 appeared on Geekbench. According to the specs that appeared on Geekbench, this upcoming Surface Studio 2 will feature up to 7th gen Intel i7 processor and 32GB of RAM. It recorded 4680 as the single-core score and 15915 as the multi-core score. It is disappointing to see that Microsoft has settled down with regular Core i7 processor while its main competitor Apple has gone with Core i9 and Xeon processors for its flagship all-in-one PCs.
Microsoft is expected to reveal new Surface products at its press event next month. Read about the event in detail here.
