Microsoft unveils Surface Pro 8: 13-inch 120Hz display and Thunderbolt 4

Microsoft has announced the Surface Pro 8, which should offer a major upgrade over the Surface Pro 7. Thanks to an Intel Tiger Lake quad-core CPU, it should offer up to 43% more processing power and 75% faster graphics, although the precise workload not mentioned on which this comparison is based. In addition, the rumors have been confirmed that the device will be equipped with a 120Hz screen and Thunderbolt.

The Surface Pro 8 gets a 13-inch PixelSense display, which offers a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. In addition to Dolby Vision, the panel also has Adaptive Color technology. The latter adjusts the color temperature based on the user’s environment. Incidentally, the bezels are also thinner than those of its predecessor.

The detachable Surface Pro Signature Keyboard now also comes with the new Surface Slim Pen 2. This stylus can be neatly stored in the keyboard, where it is also provided with a pin. The pen has a built-in haptic motor that should mimic the feel of pen and paper, while the improved tip should ensure lower latency and higher precision.


When the pen is removed from the keyboard, Windows 11 shows some useful buttons.

In addition to the Surface Connect port for charging, the 2-in-1 has no less than two Thunderbolt 4 ports. This should make it possible to connect fast external storage, as well as 4k monitors or an external GPU. In terms of other features, the device provides up to 32GB of RAM and ‘studio microphones’, along with a 10MP main camera and a 5MP selfie camera. Finally, a battery life of 16 hours is claimed.

Microsoft has not released any information on pricing or availability, the Surface Pro 8 is expected to launch not much later than October 5. It is on this date that Windows 11 will be officially rolled out.
