Microsoft Surface Pro 5 Rumored To Launch This October To Compete With Apple's MacBook Pro
Both the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 and the Apple MacBook Pro 2016 have been nothing but rumored for the past year. Even though a bunch of rumors have come out about the two devices, no one between Microsoft and Apple has weighed in on the matter. The most recent news suggest that the Surface Pro 5 will match MacBook Pro 2016's alleged October release.
If true, this should be very interesting as Microsoft is known for comparing its latest devices to Apple's MacBook devices. It should be fun for Surface fans to see whether or not Microsoft can still put the Mac down this time. It's could also be exciting for Mac fans to find out whether or not Apple would reveal something than can slam the Surface Pro 5.
Microsoft Surface Pro 5 Rumored Release
According to The Bit Bag, rumors suggest that an October event will be held by Microsoft to reveal the Surface Pro 5. However, this is probably just in light with Apple's alleged MacBook event. The two companies' rivalry has become popular and it could have most likely led fans to expect that their two new devices will be revealed in the same month.
However, PC Advisor said that an October event from Microsoft might not be possible. In fact, the Surface Pro 5 could be pushed towards the early parts of 2017. Intel's Kaby Lake processor and Windows 10 Redstone 2 that are expected to be in the next Surface Pro have not been shipped yet, which means that the next Surface devices might still be in progress.
Apple MacBook Pro 2016 Rumors
According to Forbes, a new information suggests that the production of new Macs has started early this year. A 13.3-inch and a 15.4-inch MacBook Pro 2016 are expected alongside a 13.3-inch MacBook Air. As per the said report, a September or October launch date is a very big possibility.
If true, then the new MacBooks won't be using Intel's latest processor which is the Kaby Lake. Instead, the company might opt for the Intel Skylake which may be a bit inferior to the newer chip when it comes to graphics. However, there are also news about Apple releasing variants with an AMD Polaris graphics processor.
Needless to say, if the MacBook 2016 is to be released prior the Surface Pro 5, chances are high that the Microsoft device will be more powerful than the MacBook. However, since neither Apple nor Microsoft has verified any event, fans would just have to wait a little more.
