The pioneering process of launching Microsoft’s upcoming Double Surface Go tablet has been filled with leaks and rumors, which came to a head on Monday, July 9, when a report was released on Toms’ hardware. The article kicks the cat out of the bag and reveals both the name and the official space for the surface’s surface.
As previously leaked on Reddit, the tablet will use Pentium Gold Y-Series CPUs. The leaked details of the specifications suggest that it can pack up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage space. The Surface Go will come with 4GB or 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage. Comes with 64GB storage. Similar to what is available on the Surface Pro, Leaked reports that the LTE version of these two configurations will be released later, although pricing has not been announced.
Microsoft’s New Surface Tablets Could Sport Intel Pentium CPUs
Other details for the 10-inch device include a 0.3-inch thickness, 1.2 lbs (without keyboard), nine hours of battery life, a USB-C port and a Windows 10 home in S mode. The Surface Go goes on sale on August 2. Whichever configuration new Surface buyers choose, they should get much more powerful hardware than the latest Surface tablet, the Surface 3, though we liked that the convertible tablet on the 2015 Intel Atom CPU didn’t retain the three-year-old hardware with the new Pentium chips. The Atom and Pentium Silver chips have four cores, while the gold chip has two (in support of hyperthreading), but newer architectures are more powerful than the old Atom chip, and the increased memory options will give the new tablet a true edge.
That said, those who expect real power will want to opt for higher devices, as these chips were not designed as workhorse. While fully capable of watching Netflix or writing documents, more intense tasks will certainly stress the system. As Engadget noted, this is not a problem because Microsoft simply wants students and budget tablet users to consider these devices instead of Apple alternative hardware. For everyone, the Surface Go line has plenty of excellent laptops and 2-in-1s, leading the sports industry with battery life and real performance hardware.
