Microsoft introduced the Surface Pro 9 tablet. For the first time in the series, the manufacturer offers a novel on two types of processors. The choice is either in favour of the Intel Core version of the 12th generation, or in favour of the Microsoft SQ3 caste processor model with the Arm architecture developed by Qualcomm.
For the Intel-based model, the Core i5-1235U or Core i7-1255U processors are offered. For the corporate user segment, the company also offers more powerful Core i5-1245U or Core i7-1265U. The Surface Pro 9 model, based on Microsoft SQ3, with an integrated Microsoft SQ9 schedule, offers support for the wireless standard 5G.
The Intel-based tablet is ready to offer up to 32 Gbytes of LPDDR5 memory and a hard storage device of up to 1 Tbyte. The Microsoft SQ3 chip device can offer up to 16 Gbyte of LPDDR4x memory as well as a hard storage device of up to 512 Gbyte.
Both versions of the Surface Pro 9 tablet received a 13-inch sensor screen PixelSense Flow with a side ratio of 3:2, support for 2880 x 1920 pixels and the frequency of renewal. In both cases, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.1, a 1080p-supported webcam and 10 megapixel-backed cameras are supported. For the Surface Pro 9 tablet at Intel, the company claims up to 15.5 hours of stand-alone work and for its own processor-based version up to 19.9 hours.
Microsoft Surface Pro 9 will be sold on October 25. The cost of the Intel chip model will start with $999. In the maximum configuration with Core i7-1255U and 32 Gbyte, the OZU is estimated to be new at $2600. The cost of the Microsoft SQ3 processor model will start with $1,300. For example, there will be so much to be spent on the 8 Gbyte OZU and 128 GB SSD model. The keyboard will have to be purchased separately.
