Surface Pro 4 Will Be Running Skylake Processors; Expected Release Date October
Now this is an interesting turn of events; Surface Pro 4, the upcoming slate from, Microsoft which was supposed to be housing an Intel Core 'i' series processor belonging to the 14 nm Broadwell lineup is instead going to be replaced by Skylake processors. This chips are going to be made on the same manufacturing process as Broadwell. The software giant plans on sweetening the pot for consumers by making the product run Windows 10 right out of the box, which will definitely be a welcome sight rather than users performing the tedious updating process themselves.
Microsoft Plans On Upping Surface Pro 4 Units To 600,000 Per Month; Company Expecting Great Results From The Tablet?
According to the latest report, Microsoft had shipped out approximately 300,000 monthly units of its Surface Pro 3 slate. When Surface Pro 4 officially hits markets, the company plans on increasing that number to 500,000 - 600,000 units per month. Surface Pro 4 is expected to offer the same amount of features as its predecessor, ranging from a fully functional USB 3.0 port. In addition, the slate is also expected to exude a highly dense resolution and a large screen size that will deliver a ‘two in one’ solution for both casual users and those who require portability and performance for multiple tasks completion.
Like Surface Pro 3, Surface Pro 4 will most likely be available in the Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 processor variants and is expected to feature a smaller price tag in order to target a larger audience. However, the highlight of the product will be that it will be running Windows 10, which is expected to be officially announced on July 29. Let us hope that Microsoft goes easy on the price of its upcoming flagship slate.
In our opinion, the fact that Microsoft plans on shipping about twice the number of units of Surface Pro 4 as it did with Surface Pro 3 will give a general idea that the company seems confident that its upcoming product is going to be nearly twice as successful as its predecessor. Looks like we are going to have to wait and see what other goodies come along with Surface Pro 4 in order to deliver a more conclusive analysis.
