The recent Windows 10 event reconfirms Microsoft as a capable force in the computer industry. At the event, Microsoft announced three new pieces of hardware: the Surface Studio, Surface Book i7 and the Surface Dial. Actually, we could almost say the company introduced four hardware items when you consider the Surface Pen’s latency improvements.

The Surface Pen completely eliminates latency on the Surface Studio, which makes writing on the device feel like writing on paper. The speed of the ink coming out the Surface Pen is incredibly fast, making the Surface Pen almost feel like a new device.

Surface Studio users will be able to write at full speed because latency is now reduced to just milliseconds. The line between analog and digital is now more blurred than ever thanks to the perfect symbiosis between the Surface Pen and Surface Studio.

Surface Pen latency on Surface devices has long been an annoying issue for users:

Measurement says SP4 should have less latency than SP2, but it feels different in practice. For example, writing a letter “alpha” on SP4 always makes smaller circle than I usually write on paper due to latency. Ink doesn’t quite follow the speed of tip, so the circle in alpha gets smaller.

Surface Pen latency is now finally been eliminated on the Surface Studio, allowing Windows 10 creators to fully focus on their work. For more information about the Surface Pen and Surface Studio, check out the demo from the Windows 10 Eventt. (Jump straight to 1:41:00 for the Surface Pen demo.)
