Microsoft’s Surface Pro 8 could include 120Hz display and Thunderbolt ports


Microsoft’s September 22 event could include one of the biggest updates to Surface Pro in years. According to To The edge, Twitter user Shadow_Leak has share what looks like a list of stores for the Surface Pro 8 tablet. The Windows 11 machine would look like a bloated, Intel-powered counterpart to the Surface Pro X with a 13-inch narrow-bezel 120Hz display. It could also be more. useful for creatives with two Thunderbolt ports – you would finally have the headroom for an external GPU, among other super high speed peripherals.

The Surface Pro 8 leak would also make the expected leap to an 11th gen Core processor. Like the Surface Laptop 4, however, you can swap out the SSD if the included storage breaks or turns out to be too limited.

The upcoming event could be one of Microsoft’s busiest presentations to date, with a Surface Duo 2 also on deck alongside possible Surface Book, Surface Go, and Surface Pro X upgrades. leak is accurate, however, the Surface Pro 8 could be the star attraction. The Pro was one of Microsoft’s most durable Surface devices, but also one of its most conservative with relatively few changes – the 2019 revision still had a USB-A port. The 8 could revitalize the Pro series, not to mention help it compete with a new wave of detachable, two-in-one laptops.
