One of the new devices that got to begin to see the daylight at Microsoft’s October event is the new Surface Studio 2+.
As its name suggests, this new system is essentially a better form of the main Surface Studio 2, coming with new hardware within the same form factor (along with the same design) that many people have fallen deeply in love with.
The unit therefore comes with a 28-inch PixelSense display and is now powered by the 11th Gen Intel Core i7 processors with NVIDIA RTX 3060 graphics with 6GB of RAM.
Needless to say, the top Studio should be a productivity workhorse, therefore it features 32GB of DDR4 memory, as well as 1TB of SSD storage.
The top Studio 2+ has additionally been upgraded with Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi 6, and of course, it’s also compatible with the Surface Pen and also the Surface Dial.
“ln the fall of 2016 we unveiled the very first Surface Studio. It was unlike other things, and instantly captured people’s imaginations. With the large and vibrant 28-inch 3:2 display, and classy form, the product turned heads. Whenever we showed how the Zero Gravity Hinge could transform the display in to the ultimate creative canvas, people were stunned. To this day, Surface Studio has got the unique ability to draw individuals,” Microsoft says.
“As work environments have evolved in recent years, we’ve seen strong ongoing interest in this elegant, powerful and versatile product. Once we meet that demand, we’ve rearchitected our Surface Studio processing engine having an updated Intel Core i7 H Series processor, with as many as 50% faster CPU performance. We’ve designed NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 discrete graphics to double the graphics performance, achieving the most realistic ray-traced graphics when you craft 3D designs or render models. We’ve enhanced and modernized the display, cameras, Studio Mics and ports – including USB-C with Thunderbolt 4. With Windows 11, Surface Studio 2+ also meets Secured-core PC standards.”
It goes without saying the top Studio 2+ is pretty expensive, so the base model will cost no more, at least $4,500. It is projected to start shipping on October 25.
