Microsoft Surface Pro 8 engineering sample powered by Tiger Lake Core i7-1165G7 is up for sale, chassis unchanged from Surface Pro 7
Used a larger 13-inch, 2,880x1,920-resolution one. It also has a refresh rate up to 120Hz for a smoother inking experience. Microsoft also introduced the Surface Slim Pen 2 with haptic feedback to help you take advantage of it. The default is 60Hz, though, so you don't drain your battery when you don't need it. Battery life is up to 16 hours, Microsoft said in its announcement.
Powered by 11th Gen Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, this bad boy is "more than twice as fast" as 2019's Surface Pro 7, which was obviously no slouch either.
That's merely the beginning of a long list of impressive upgrades, which also includes two Thunderbolt 4 ports, up from zero on the Pro 8's predecessor, a battery life of no less than 16 hours in "typical" device usage, up from only 10.5 hours a couple of years ago, and perhaps most eye-catchingly, 120Hz display refresh rate technology.
The PixelSense screen, mind you, is also larger than on previous Surface Pro generations, at 13 whole inches, while sporting razor-thin bezels that help the new jumbo-sized Windows 11 tablet actually reduce the overall height of its predecessor.
With Dolby Vision and Adaptive Color Technology, said display should provide a pretty much unparallelled content viewing experience, especially when you consider the enhanced 2W stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support as well.
