Microsoft’s new matte black Surface Pro 6 has quad-core processors
It’s 67 percent more powerful than the last generation!
Microsoft has unveiled its latest hybrid laptop, the Surface Pro 6. The new Surface Pro comes with impressive internals, and a new matte black finish, while the rest of the exterior inherits the predecessor.
Powering the Surface Pro 6 is Intel’s 8th generation quad-core CPU coupled with 16GB of RAM and up to 1TB of storage. Microsoft claims the device is 67-percent more powerful than the last generation, with an improved thermal cooling system to accommodate the new cores.
The display is the same 12.3 inches at 267 pixels per inch. In case you’re wondering about the battery life, the Surface Pro 6 can last up to 13.5 hours between charges. While the hybrid laptop still lacks the USB Type-C connectivity in 2018, what it has improved in appearance is the color. Welcome, Matte Black. The new matte black finish covers the entire Surface Pro 6, with swappable keyboards of different colors, of course.
The Surface Pro 6 starts at $899 USD for the Intel Core i5 variant and will be available beginning October 16. Pre-orders are open now in the US, Canada, Australia, Austria, Germany, China, Ireland, Japan, New Zealand, and the UK.
