Surface Pro 5 News: 'Alient Covenant' Teaser Reveals Microsoft Might Feature AMD Ryzen
A new trailer for Alien: Covenant has sparked rumors that the Surface Pro 5 might possibly be powered by AMD's new Ryzen family of processors, in addition to Intel's Kaby Lake chips. However, details are still uncertain. Although, some reports suggested that the company may release an AMD-based variant as well as the expected Intel versions.
The rumor stems from a promotional video unveiled for upcoming science fiction thriller Alien: Covenant. The video, sponsored by AMD, shows the creation of 'Walter', an android played by Michael Fassbender. According to a source, the story talks about, a prominently-branded AMD chip being used as his brain, with one of the doctors using a device that looks like a thinner, sleeker Surface Pro model. The video and campaign come along with a tagline "intelligence powered by AMD". Microsoft's first-gen devices have previously featured exclusively Intel chips, however, this could be about to change. Given that the Surface Pro line is specifically geared towards multi-tasking and productivity, this could prove a very attractive project for Microsoft.
Microsoft Surface Pro 5 specs, the hybrid device is expected to come with a 12.3-inch screen, 4K UltraHD display, 512GB of storage, 16GB of RAM and an upgraded Surface Pen stylus alongside with wireless charging feature. Also, there are reports that suggest the Surface Pro 5 might support Microsoft's Windows 10 Creator's Update and that includes the Hololens and the Surface Dial on release. Furthermore, Microsoft is highly expected to unveil the Surface Pro 5, possibly alongside other Surface-branded devices, in April this year. This would coincide with the launch of the Windows 10 Creators Update. Tying the two launches together would enable Microsoft to use the Surface Pro 5 to showcase the latest version of its operating system, a strategy the company has used in the past.
