Microsoft also announced Surface Studio 2 during its A moment of your time event in New York City. This device is also mainly equipped with an internal update; in terms of design, Surface Studio 2 still looks a lot like its predecessor.

The first Surface Studio was announced just under two years ago. It was Microsoft’s first desktop computer, with a 28-inch display and pretty good specifications. But since its launch, there has been no update. For this reason, Microsoft has opted for a substantial internal update.

Substantial improvement

Surface Studio 2 has a 28-inch screen, just like the original version. As with its predecessor, 13.5 million pixels have been integrated into that screen. At the same time, the brightness of the screen has increased by up to 38 percent. In addition, it offers 22 percent more contrast. As with the previous version, Surface Studio 2 also features 4,096 pressure levels when the screen is operated with the Surface Pen.

Furthermore, Microsoft promises that it will be the fastest Surface ever. The GPU would be up to 50 percent faster and the processor up to 35 percent faster. Which CPU it contains is not clear, although we do know that Microsoft has opted for a Nvidia Pascal GPU with a calculating power of six teraflops. Which processor keeps the device running is also not certain. The all-in-one also has a storage capacity of up to two terabytes.

Surface Studio 2 will be on sale in the United States from November 15 and will cost $3,499. That’s more than its predecessor, who went on sale in December 2016 from $2,999.
