The Surface line of devices released by Microsoft has been quite popular among users, and many fans are looking forward to the release of the Microsoft Surface Book 3, an event that should take place later this year.
It is clear that Microsoft has been hard at work on the upcoming device since it will have to compete with several models released by rival companies. The archenemy is the MacBook line offered by Apple, which remains a significant heat despite growing price tags and the Cupertino giant’s push towards the iPad Pro as a replacement for laptops.
According to some sources, Microsoft focused on the internal specs of the device, and it is likely that the design will be similar to that of the Surface Book 2, which enjoyed positive reviews from fans and reviewers alike thanks to clean looks and an accent on portability.
Details about Microsoft Surface Book 3
It is theorized that Microsoft may opt to use the 10th generation of Intel processors and Nvidia 16xx dedicated graphics cards. Intel’s finest could be present in the form of the Tiger Lake-U chips, but several configuration options will be available, and some users may opt to go for the AMD Ryzen 5 CPUs, with the 4500U being a suitable candidate.
With up to 16GB of RAM and 1TB SSD being offered in the case of the Surface Book 2, Microsoft may likely double the value in Surface Book 3, allowing users to pick models with 32GB of RAM and a 2TB SSD in exchange for a premium price tag.
Previous rumors also mentioned that two screen sizes would be available, with the more affordable versions of the Microsoft Surface Book 3 packing a 13.5-inch panel. In contrast, the more expensive ones will sport a 15-inch panel. The device could be released towards the start of Q4, but it may be delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, which can hamper the production process.
