Microsoft Surface Book 2-in-1 was rolled out back in October 2015, whereas the Surface Book i7 was revealed during the Redmond’s October event.
Although the latter has been well appreciated, tech fanatics were disappointed that the device was not the highly anticipated Microsoft Surface Book 2 2017.
If the latest rumors are to be believed, Microsoft might roll out the much awaited Surface Book 2 as early as the second quarter of 2017. Here’s what we know about the upcoming Microsoft Surface Book 2 2017 so far:
Microsoft Surface Book 2 2017: Specs & Features
Although Microsoft has not yet revealed much about the Surface Book 2 2017 model, there are already rumors in the market regarding the replacement of the Macbook Pro 2016. The upcoming Surface Book 2 is all set to offset this year’s MacBook model and will also take away all its issues.
Microsoft Surface Book 2 2017: 4K Display & HD 3D Graphics
Recent reports suggest that the upcoming device will feature an even better high definition screen. While the screen size will be 13.5″, the same as the previous model, the screen will offer a 4K resolution (3840 x 2160).
The HD support will be possible with the introduction of a new chipset, which will supposedly offer a better graphics architecture for the next year’s Surface Book 2. This enhanced architecture will aid the Surface Book for an improved 4K Video playback and high-resolution 3D graphics.
Microsoft Surface Book 2 2017: Processor And Chipset
If the rumors are to be believed, the upcoming Surface Book will feature the next generation Kaby Lake Chipsets. The current Macbook Pro model was rolled out with the Sky Lake processors but wasn’t much appreciated by tech enthusiasts. It’s expected that the 2017 device will come with the Kaby Lake chipsets, which will offer a better graphics architecture.
The 13.5″ display with a 3,000 x 2,000 (267 PPI) resolution, when combined with Intel HD Graphics 520 GPU, will provide support for 4K video playback as well as 3D graphics.
The upcoming surface Book 2 might also feature Intel’s new 14-nanometer chips, which will provide USB 3.1 Type-C as well as Thunderbolt 3 support.
