Microsoft recently launched its Surface Book 3 with a claim of having a 50% faster performance than its predecessor. The Surface Book 3 hasn’t undergone design changes in its exteriors, but the interior specs have received enough boosts. For Surface fans who have high demanding work like designers, or are addict to gaming, this laptop is worth considering.
Features, Variants and Price
Like its predecessor, the Surface Book 3 also comes with either a 13.5-inch or 15-inch screen. The laptop starts at the price of $1,599 and may climb up rapidly depending on your configuration.
The product will be available from May 21 and the 13.5-inch model will start at $1,599. This base model features a 10th Gen Intel Core i5 processor, Intel Iris Plus graphics, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage.
On the other hand, the 15-inch model’s base specs take a significant leap. This model includes a 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, Nvidia GeForce 1660 Ti Max-Q GPU, 16GB RAM, and a 256GB SSD storage. The 15-inch variant starts at $2,299.
Microsoft claims that it’s the fastest SSD that they have ever shipped, and has the best battery life among any Surface device. Like the new MacBook Pro from Apple, the Surface Book 3 can also be equipped with up to 32GB RAM. However, the storage is capped at 1TB for the 13-inch version and 2TB for the 15-inch variant as compared to 4TB on the MacBook Pro.
Battery Backup of Surface Book 3
In terms of battery, Microsoft claims to have increased the battery backups for both the variants. The 13.5-inch model claims the 15.5 hours of mixed usage time. On the other hand, the 15-inch version lasts for 17.5 hours of mixed usage.
This laptop is claimed to be the best for designers and gamers. According to Microsoft, this laptop is designed to target professionals working with tools like 3D objects or CAD design software that require the Quadro GPU power to render objects. With the 50% faster speed this time, the Surface Book 3 deals with such software effectively.
