Microsoft unveils Surface Pro 9 with Intel or Arm Chips with 5G support.
October 12, 2022 – Microsoft announced the new Surface Pro, a tablet that can replace your laptop.
Surface Pro 9 is crafted with high-grade aluminum casing in a new set of beautiful, anodized colors. On one side you see the iconic built-in kickstand and on the other a gorgeous 13-inch PixelSense display.
A Surface display is more than a sheet of glass. It’s a canvas, a journal, a notepad, an editing bay and a cinema screen. It’s a vibrant sheet of pixels that transforms into the combination of experiences that keep you informed, productive, entertained and connected. With incredible levels of quality, performance and versatility, the edge-to-edge display on Surface Pro 9 is stunning. With up to 120Hz refresh rate and a wide range of colors, visual stories are true to life. Underneath the display is an HD camera, Omnisonic speakers, directional microphones and Microsoft’s custom G6 chip that takes inking to the next level with tactile signals. Combined with the new Ink Focus in Microsoft OneNote, or the new GoodNotes app coming in early 2023 to Windows 11, digital ink on the screen feels like writing with pen and paper.
Beneath the iconic exterior, Surface Pro has always been about performance. Surface Pro 9 offers a choice between processors – 12th Gen Intel® Core processor built on the Intel® Evo™ platform with Thunderbolt™ 4, or Microsoft SQ®3 powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon with 5G connectivity. In either case, you’re getting the same iconic Surface Pro form, great performance, all-day battery life and Secured-core capabilities as per Microsoft. The choice comes down to the combination of scenarios that are most critical to you and how you work, create and connect.
The latest 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processor offers incredible power and performance. Verified as an Intel® Evo™ device, it’s ready for real-world multi-tasking, full desktop productivity, all-day battery life and intense workloads – with up to 50% more performance than Surface Pro 8. Thunderbolt™ 4 enables rapid data transfer, docking to multiple 4K displays, or supporting an eGPU set-up.
The Microsoft SQ®3 processor provides fast 5G connectivity3, and ultra-long battery life – up to 19 hours. Additionally, it unlocks new AI features made possible through an entirely new Neural Processing Unit (NPU) that transforms how you connect with the people in your life. Capable of more than 15 trillion calculations per second, the NPU in Surface Pro 9 drives new experiences with Windows Studio effects.
To celebrate 10 years of Surface Microsoft partnered with London-based global design house “Liberty” to bring art and technology together to create a special-edition Surface Pro keyboard and laser-etched Surface Pro 9 with an exclusive pattern in a vibrant blue floral inspired by the Windows 11 Bloom – available in select markets, only at Liberty and Microsoft Stores while supplies last.
Microsoft also revealed the Surface Laptop 5. The Surface Laptop 5 is sleek and elegant, providing all-day battery life. It now offers the latest 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processor, Thunderbolt™ 4 and is co-engineered and verified as an Intel® Evo™ device for the first time, making the Surface Laptop 5 over 50% more powerful than its predecessor.
Surface Laptop 5’s signature 3:2 PixelSense display comes in 13.5-inch or 15-inch options, each with Dolby Vision IQ, giving you the best possible picture, with vivid colors and sharp contrast in any lighting conditions. The speakers are perfectly tuned and offer Dolby Atmos 3D spatial processing to fully immerse you in your content. The front-facing HD camera and Studio Microphones capture you in true-to-life fashion, even adjusting camera exposure in any lighting environment.
