Microsoft is refreshing the Surface Line with its new Surface Book 2 targeted at users who desire both a clamshell form-factor and the sheer power and versatility provided by the Surface Book.

The Surface Book 2 comes in two sizes

The new Surface Book comes in two sizes: the standard 13-inch and a 15-inch, both of which sport similar designs to the Surface Book.  Manufacturers of ultrabooks favor the 13-inch variant.

More power than the Surface Book

This new upgrade is all about power. It comes with the 8th-gen Intel processor compared to the Surface Book that used older Skylake CPUs. It will be three times more powerful than the original Surface Book, and Microsoft says it will be the first of its products to include this much power in a mobile form factor.

The smaller variant of the device will be able to generate out 2.2 teraflops of power and the larger one, 4.3 teraflops.

A focus on gaming

The Surface Book 2 will also focus on gaming with its packed in GTX 1060  graphics card, making it compatible with Windows Mixed Reality along with traditional AAA games like Gears of War 4 at 1080p in 60 FPS. It will also come with support for the new Surface Pen.

Microsoft compared this new Surface Book 2 to the MacBook Pro, claiming it will be two times more powerful than the MacBook Pro, sport 35% more pixels and 70% more battery life than Apple’s device.

The Surface Book 2 will launch on November 16. The 13-inch version will be priced at $1499 and the 15-inch one at $2499. You can preorder the device starting November 9th.
