The Latest From Microsoft Surface
A Surface Pro with 43 percent more compute than its predecessor, a Surface Go that’s 60 percent faster and the Surface Laptop Studio--“the most powerful Surface” Microsoft has made--were on display Wednesday during a digital unveiling of the new line of devices from the tech giant.
The new Surface devices were built “hand-in-hand” with the upcoming Windows 11 operating system, according to the company. The new Surface devices are available for pre-order now, and will be shipping Oct. 5, the same day that Windows 11 goes into general availability.
The new devices are “advancing the 2-in-1 category, creating a new laptop category and reimagining what you can do with two screens,” Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said during the event.
“We believe that cloud and edge AI together will define the future of every application,” he said. “Take the Laptop Studio. With the AI models running on the device, combined with the power of Teams, we’re able to optimize your voice, your video, no matter your background noise or lighting.”
Microsoft Chief Product Officer Panos Panay described the new devices and accessories as “built hand-in-hand with Windows 11, lighting up amazing experiences across Microsoft 365, Edge, Teams, GamePass, all your favorite apps.”
