Microsoft Surface Book 3 Announced With 10th Gen Intel CPU And Nvidia RTX GPU

A series of new Microsoft devices have recently been announced in the Surface line including the Surface Book 3.

Boosted Performance

This laptop builds on everything that is great about its predecessor and excels in performance. This is due to a new Intel Core CPU working behind the scenes and up to an Nvidia Quadro RTX graphics card.

Microsoft says that the Surface Book 3 is about 50% more powerful than the Surface Book 2 which could see it being a great option for someone who loves the series and is looking for an upgrade.

The Surface Book 3 comes with up to 32 GB of RAM and has a 13 and 15-inch version to choose from.

Graphics Card Support

In terms of graphics cards, the Surface Book laptops can support up to either an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 or GTX 1660 GPU. The 15-inch model also has the option to support an Nvidia RTX graphics card.

Storage and Other Features

Storage can be boosted from 256 GB to 1 TB but the 15-inch model can support up to a huge 2 TB option for a higher price. These laptops can also be upgraded to the “fastest SSD we’ve ever shipped” according to Microsoft.

These laptops have up to 17.5 hours of battery life for the 15-inch model and 15.5 hours for the 13 inch one.

The laptop also includes a high DPI PixelSense display, a comfortable keyboard, and a precise trackpad. This makes it a great option for business tasks, creative work, or even gaming.

When Will The Surface Book 3 Laptops Be Available for Purchase?

The Surface Book 3 13 inch version is priced at $1,599 and the 15 inch is available for $2,199.
