Surface Pro 5 Update, Rumors: Microsoft Developments Delay ‘Redstone 2’ Release; Features Kaby Lake Processor, More! [VIDEO]
The world may be saddened by the news (Codename: Redstone 2) that Microsoft Surface Pro 5 release is moved until Spring 2017 but its developers have good reasons for the delay. The 2-in-1 detachable device will be merging with Windows 10 to have all its features in one flagship model and better.
Microsoft's second-wave updates for Windows 10 are expected to arrive in 2017 through Surface Pro 5, International Business Times reported. Microsoft uses Redstone as codename to the wave of updates it releases. Its Surface Pro 4 (Codename: Redstone 1) is due to arrive in June merging all Windows 10 devices on to one platform. Meanwhile, "Redstone 2" said that Surface Pro 5 may advance its developments through its post-Windows 10 merger.
"Redstone 2" will hoard Windows 10 devices to the market which seemed to confirm that Surface Pro 5 will be one of those, ZDNet reported.
Therefore, the device will probably be rolled out next year and has certainly provided a spanner in the works for users seeking to upgrade to the Surface Pro 5. Alas, existing Surface Pro 4 users may find this as terrible news. But for Surface Pro 3 users moving up or advancing to the Surface Pro platform, this is potentially the best time to consider the Surface Pro 4, IBT reported.
The Surface Pro 4 will be available either with the performance-oriented i5 and i7 processors or a power-efficient 6th Gen Intel Core m3 processor while the Surface Pro 5 is allegely powered by a 7th generation Intel Kaby Lake processor. These processors are part of the Skylake processors family, IBT added.
Some rumors point out that the Surface Pro 5 will be featuring a processor clocked up to 4GHz. This could make the Surface Pro 5 as the most powerful tablet in the market and would also mean that the Surface Pro 5 would surely outdo the Surface Pro 4's i7 processor completely out of the water as the latter has a clock speed of only 2.2 GHz which can be increased to 3.4 GHz.
