Microsoft’s annual Surface event may be a few weeks away. While it’ll probably specialize in a shiny new Surface Laptop, some are probably hoping that the Surface Duo 2 also make its debut there. There’ll probably be other Surface-branded products to be shown alongside Windows 11, but one that would find yourself slipping under the radar may be a new Surface Go 3. Judging by what we’ve heard thus far , it probably won’t even cause heads to show when it gets announced.
The first Surface Go was an honest but seemingly halfhearted attempt at a transportable version of the Surface Pro tablet. While its smaller size and affordable price may have appealed to some consumers, its mediocre performance didn’t. The Surface Go 2 corrected a number of those mistakes with more powerful processor options but barely changed the formula when it came to everything else.
It now seems that the Surface Go 3 will continue that tradition and won’t look different from its predecessor in the least . Consistent with WinFuture’s data, the portable 2-in-1 tablet will still have that 10.5-inch FHD display, suggesting an equivalent thick bezels that the road has been criticized for. On the upside, that would mean that accessories made for the Surface Go 2 may additionally be compatible with the Surface Go 3.
However, the biggest upgrade will be inside, with the utilization of a Core i3-10100Y, a primary for the Surface Go family. The quad-core 1.3GHz (3.9GHz boosted) processor are going to be paired with 8GB of RAM, hopefully with a 16GB option available. Although one generation old, it’s still a serious intensify from the defunct Core m3 processor of the Surface Go 2.
However, it wouldn’t be a Surface Go without a Pentium configuration, and therefore the Surface Go 3 will apparently have a replacement dual-core Intel Pentium Gold 6500Y. The CPU runs at 1.1GHz (3.4GHz boosted) and can only have a 4GB RAM partner. This configuration is clearly aimed toward those that prioritize price and thermal dissipation, but Intel’s Pentium processors don’t always deliver better battery life within the end of the day .
