Microsoft quietly launches new Surface Book 2 configuration

Over the weekend, the 13.5in Microsoft Surface Book 2 got a refresh which gave the model an 8th-generation Intel Core i5 processor.

Without so much as an announcement, Microsoft launched a new configuration for the Surface Book 2 this past weekend. Instead of only being powered by either the entry-level dual-core 7th-generation Intel i5 processor or the high-end quad-core 8th-generation Intel i7 processor, customers can opt for the quad-core 8th-generation i5.

This change brings a mid-range option to the 13.5in model with a base speed of 1.70 GHz – which is slower than both of the other options – and a max turbo frequency of 3.60 GHz, which is 0.1 GHz more than the previous generation and 0.6 GHz less than the i7. By doubling the amount of cores, the performance should receive a significant boost.

The 8th-gen i5 Surface Book 2 is only available with 8GB of memory and 256GB of storage, and weighs in at US$1,499 (RM6,119). If you want more memory or storage, you’ll have to upgrade to the models with the i7 processor which are priced at US$1,999 (RM8,160) for the 13.5in model or up to US$3,299 (RM13,466) for the 15in model. – AFP Relaxnews
