Microsoft Surface Pro 5 Details Shared By Credible Tech Journo
A well-known technology journalist may have the inside track with regards to the rumored Microsoft Surface Pro 5. The successor to one of Microsoft's most successful devices so far is said to be keeping the Surface Connect power connector. Paul Thurrott also claimed that the Surface Pro 5 will come with Intel's Kaby Lake processor.
Thurrott, a tech journo, and blogger who has won awards for his work mentioned in a tweet that he was told that the Surface Pro 5 will not change the Surface Connect power connector. According to ARS Technica, the tweet meant that Microsoft is not switching yet to USB-C charging. It did hint of the possibility that the Surface pro 5 will have support for USB-C charging as is the case with other devices in the market with propriety power jacks. The tweet also said, "Kaby Lake, nothing dramatic" which clearly indicated that the device will use the Intel CPU instead of one of AMD's Ryzen processors.
Thurrott's claims that Microsoft's next flagship 2-in-1 tablet will be powered by Kaby Lake is a complete turnaround to the recent rumor that Microsoft is shifting to AMD for this one. The rumor first surfaced after a Surface Pro-looking device was seen in a video teaser for the sci-fi film "Alien: Covenant". The video showed a female scientist using what seemed like Microsoft's popular hybrid tablet as she and a co-worker created the humanoid Walter portrayed by Michael Fassbender. In another scene in the teaser, a chip with AMD printed on it was embedded on Walter.
The "nothing dramatic" part of Thurrott's tweet was taken by The Verge to mean that there is nothing really game-changing with the Surface Pro 5. In other words, the successor will be nothing more than a "refreshed design with upgraded components". The author of 25 books also stressed, when asked by some of his Twitter followers, that what he wrote was the only things he knew about the Surface Pro 5.
