After skipping 2022, Microsoft may have plans for the Surface Laptop Studio again.
Windows Central they believe that the Surface Laptop 2, called “Ersa” (not “Ursa,” or Latin for “bear,” ironically) will launch this fall. What we call the “wave of the future” in our life Surface Laptop Studio review it will be replaced with the latest hardware from Intel and Nvidia, the site reports, citing privacy.
Pulling from several it dropped the Geekbench benchmarks, the site believes that Microsoft will skip the Core i5 model and go straight to the 13th-Gen Core i7-13700H and Core i7-13800H. For graphics, Microsoft sticks to its tried-and-true model, offering an entry-level RTX 4060 GPU. These entry-level GPUs appear in “creative” models of popular laptops such as the Surface Laptop Studio, which are more focused on photography and video editing than serious gaming. (The last one and possible, though not necessary.)
Windows Central says it believes otherwise the Surface Laptop Studio 2 will be unchanged, which makes sense. Microsoft rarely updates its devices, with the latest, major updates arriving on the Surface Duo 2 (with an extra camera) and a revamp of the Surface Pro line with the addition of a Thunderbolt connector. Instead, it often replaces the internal components instead.
Initially, Geekbench benchmarks seemed to indicate that the Surface Laptop Studio 2 will be shipped in the spring, but now to refresh the fall (hello, Windows 11 23H2!) With the Surface Laptop Studio, Microsoft has redesigned the Surface aggressively and interestingly. It looks like the Surface Laptop 2 will continue its legacy.
