Microsoft Surface Pro 8 revealed with a new design, a 120 Hz display and Thunderbolt 4 support
Microsoft has presented another successor to the Surface Pro 7, having already unveiled the Surface Pro 7+. This time it is the Surface Pro 8, which looks more like the Surface Pro X than the Surface Pro 7.
Accordingly, the Surface Pro 8 supports the Surface Slim Pen 2, which it recharges in the same way as the Surface Pro X does with the Surface Slim Pen. The Surface Pro 8 has a 13-inch display that resolves at 2,880 x 1,920 pixels and runs at up to 120 Hz.
Microsoft complements the display with an Intel Core i5-1135G7 or Core i7-1185G7, along with a 51.5 Wh battery. Additionally, the 2-in-1 has all the ports of the Surface Pro X, and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. However, the Surface Pro 8's two USB Type-C ports also support the Thunderbolt 4 protocol.
The Surface Pro 8 starts at US$1,099 with 8 GB of RAM and a 128 GB SSD. The device is configurable up to 32 GB of RAM and a 1 TB SSD, although all SSDs are replaceable. Both colour options, Platinum and Graphite, will start shipping on October 5.
