Are we getting Microsoft Surface new models in the upcoming Surface & AI event this September? Well, seems like it, according to a trusted leaker. Though the updates are expected to be minor, new CPUs are the most significant change and they will reportedly hit the market in October.
Folks over at the German publication WinFuture first exclusively revealed that the Surface Laptop Studio will receive an upgrade to the Intel Core i7-13800H processor, which is part of the company’s new “Raptor Lake” family, as well as purchase options for 16 or 32GB of RAM and 512GB or 1TB of SSD storage.
The chip is much faster than the previous generation. It has six cores that can handle demanding tasks and eight cores that can save power when not needed.
On the other hand, the Surface Laptop Go 2 will switch to the Intel Core i5-1235U processor, which is also from the “Alder Lake” family — alongside options for 128GB or 256GB of SSD storage and 8GB of RAM. In case you missed it, the chip features two high-end cores clocked at up to 4.4 gigahertz, along with eight power-efficient cores.
Lastly, the latest model of the Surface Go hybrid tablet, Surface Go 3, also gets a switch to an Intel N200 Quad-Core chip with purchase options of 64GB, 128GB, or 256GB of storage and 8GB of RAM.
Unfortunately, though, no official words from Microsoft or the leak’s source about the prices just yet, but it’s safe to expect a slightly higher price tag than their predecessors.
