New details about the Microsoft Surface Book 3 have been published that indicate the device will soon be released. The latest retailer listings describe the core configurations for the 13.5-inch and 15-inch Surface Book 3 convertibles along with a list of prices in Euros. It seems these new Surface devices will be coming with quad-core Intel Comet Lake-U processors.
Daniel R Deakin,

There might have been some expecting the upcoming Microsoft Surface Book 3 to come with Ice Lake processors from Intel, however, new retailer listings published by WinFuture show Comet Lake chips in the form of the Intel Core i5-10210U and i7-10510U being in charge of powering the new convertible. There are numerous configurations shown for both the 13.5-inch model and 15-inch version of the Surface Book 3, with the larger device offering just the Intel Core i7-10510U as a sole SoC option.

Along with the quad-core SoCs from Intel, the latest Microsoft Surface Book convertible will apparently come with memory options of 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB RAM, although it appears that the 8 GB option is for the 13.5-inch model only according to the retailer listing. The storage options run through 256 GB, 512 GB, and 1 TB SSDs, with the latter being speculated on back in February. It seems the 1 TB choice is available for either size of the Surface Book 3.

There is also mention of discrete GPUs being part of the Microsoft Surface Book 3’s configuration options, specifically models from the Nvidia Quadro lineup, although nothing more detailed than that is mentioned. If you ignore the prices next to the listings with “Demo” in the description (see image below), then you can get a rough idea of how much the new Surface Book 3 devices will cost, with prices ranging from €2,000 (US$2,186/£1,746) to around €4,300 (US$4,701/£3,753). These prices are in line with another recent leak on the same subject, which suggests the Surface Book 3 is ready for an imminent release.
