Microsoft today introduced Surface Book 2, which comes with support for the full range of Intel 8th Generation processors as well as NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 and 1060 graphics card options.

Users interested in the Surface Book 2 will be able to choose between the 13 and 15-inch versions, which are quite light for the power they offer.

Compared to the original, Surface Book 2 is “five times more powerful” and retains a battery life of up to 17 hours of continuous video playback, which is “70% more than the latest MacBook Pro “.

Surface Book 2 is powerful enough to run professional software like Adobe, Autodesk, and Dassault without problems and allows you to play PC titles in 1080p and 60 fps, including demanding games like Forza Motorsport 7 and Gears of War 4.

 

All configurations, regardless of screen size, CPU and GPU, are compatible with Windows Reality Hulls.

The new Surface Book 2 finally has USB-A and USB-C connectivity options as well as an SD card reader. The hinge has been redesigned for a smoother and faster transition to Tablet or Studio mode.

The 13 “Surface Book 2 starts on Nov. 9 in the United States and other markets starting at $ 1,499, while the 15” variant comes exclusively to the United States on the same date starting at $ 2,499.
