#Microsoft #SurfaceBook2 – Microsoft Surface Book 2 release date rumors: No Surface Book; Surface all-in-one PC : The month of October has finally arrived and Windows fans are now pretty hyped up for an event that the Redmond-based tech giant, Microsoft, is rumored to hold.
Unfortunately, though, it seems there is a slim chance that followers will see the much-anticipated Microsoft Surface Book 2 if the event pushes through as word has it that the manufacturer has a different product to launch in mind.
According to a report from ZDNet last month, rumor has it that Microsoft is planning to showcase the Surface all-in-one (AIO) PC at its October event instead of the highly anticipated Microsoft Surface Book 2 laptop.
Codenamed “Cardinal,” the Surface AIO PC is going to be come out in the market in three screen size options – 21 inches, 24 inches, and the largest , 27 inches. With this latest update, fans have speculated that the launch of Microsoft Surface Book 2 will most likely be pushed back to a much later date, possibly sometime in 2017, reports have suggested.
If this timeframe prediction really does happen, then fans should expect to see a much more advanced chipset under its hood, specifically the recently launched Intel processor, the seventh generation Kaby Lake.
Another feature that fans are excited to see in the Microsoft Surface Book 2 is the advanced 4K display resolution that can be found in most high-end desktops today. However, in order to deliver this, the tech giant may need to equip its upcoming device with a high-end graphics processing unit (GPU).
If that’s the case – and if Microsoft really does equip the device with a powerful GPU card – then the next Surface Book could also come with virtual reality (VR) support.
Amidst all these claims, it should be noted that Microsoft has yet to confirm or deny the existence of the Surface Book 2, including its specifications and expected release date. Source: mnrdaily
