The company said that it designs Surface devices to suit the requirements of each type of user.

As we continue to expand our Surface family of devices, our goal is to design a Surface for every person, every work style and every location, scaling from the most portable to the most performant.

Surface Go 2 has a more powerful processor

Microsoft announced Surface Go 2 in a blog post earlier today, saying that its processor outdoes its predecessor’s by 64%. Different 8th Generation Intel Core M processor options are available for this device.

Do you remember the Surface RT, which Microsoft launched in 2012 with a lot of optimism? Then, the long-term idea was to create new form factors that closed the gap between the tablet and laptop. While things didn’t always go according to plan, the company has since built an adorable lineup of versatile Windows 10 PCs.

So, Surface Go 2 symbolizes one of Microsoft’s latest milestones toward transforming the way you use and interact with your PC. It has other remarkable improvements too, such as, longer battery life.

The Redmond-based tech giant wanted the tablet to retain the light weight of the original. As such, the device still has a slim build, although it has a larger 10.5-inch display.

The device will be retailing at no less than $399.

The Surface Book 3

Microsoft also announced Surface Book 3 today. Concerning performance, the device boasts 50% higher computing power than its predecessor.

The company is marketing the laptop as a powerful device for professional and business applications. With its processing power, it will be of great interest to software developers and architectural designers.

The laptop comes in 13-inch and 15-inch variants powered by 10th Generation Intel Core processors.

Besides, the device is also a perfect option for Xbox Game Pass users. Its graphics capabilities are suitable for top-performance gaming too. You can get one with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX or Quadro RTX GPU.

The cheapest Surface Book 3 goes for $1599, and you can buy it starting in May 21.

Surface Headphones 2 and Surface Earbuds launched today too.

Many Surface fans expect Microsoft to launch its dual-screen devices this coming holiday as promised. If the company fulfills its promise, the year 2020 will mostly have been a successful one for the Surface product line.
