Microsoft Lifts The Veil On Surface Pro 6

Intel Core 8 TH Generation For All

On the menu: a better cooling system allowing it to embed processors Intel Core 8 th generation up to 4 cores (and 8 threads). According to the variant equipped with an i5 or i7, Microsoft announces a performance gain of 67% compared to the previous generation of the hybrid. It was thought that the Redmond firm would erase its smallest model in favor of the Surface Go , and this is indeed what happens: exit the Core M3, the range is declined in only 5 models.

The processor is logically accompanied by Intel UHD 620 graphics chipset and 8 or 16 GB of RAM. Storage side, Microsoft offers its Surface Pro 6optionally with a SSD of 128, 256, 512 or 1 TB. 

Finally Microsoft announces a battery life of 13.5 hours (tested in video playback locally).

No USB-C, No Change

For its Surface Pro 6, Microsoft is once again deadlocked on the USB-C and retains its mini Display Port and USB 3.1. To believe that the manufacturer still had chassis to sell. The dimensions and the template of the tablet do not evolve either: 2: 3 format and thickness of 8.5 mm in particular.

The screen, still largely contoured, retains a diagonal of 12.3 "but displays, according to Microsoft, a better contrast. Finally, it will now be possible to select a different color than the traditional platinum gray, namely an integral black that had largely faded before his announcement.

For the moment, no precise details as to the marketing in France or, more broadly, in Europe. However, we know that this Surface Pro 6 will be available on the American market as of October 16th.
