Microsoft has just announced the new Surface Go 2 tablet. With the new Intel Core M3 CPU option, this is now a viable solution for a greater number of staff. The lightest Surface understands your handwriting, lets you draw on almost anything in Windows 10 and secure by design with S mode. With a larger 10.5" display, the 544 gram tablet features more battery life and a new performance option for workplace applications. The following outlines the differences between the two generations:
Increases are bolded.
New Intel® Core™ M3 option
The entry-level Intel Pentium Gold processor receives a modest performance bump.
The most important change is the new 8th Gen Intel Core M3 option, a dual core ultra-low power processor that increases performance by approximately 64% according to Microsoft. Faster graphics and increased SSD transfer speeds for the M3 also provide more power for teams using enterprise applications and Windows 10 Pro.
Surface Go 2 with Core M3 and 8GB memory should exceed the performance of the entry-level 2018 Surface Pro 6 with 7th Gen Intel Core M3 and just 4GB memory.
Wi-Fi 6™ now standard
All models now support Wi-Fi 6™, which provides more reliable high speed connections in crowded network environments.
The Surface Go 2 can also be optioned with 4G LTE Advanced data for remote teams.
The high-quality PixelSense™ display has been increased in size to 10.5" without the overall size of the device increasing. An increase in resolution from 1800x1200 to 1920x1280 increases usability for office applications and makes monitor resolution matching easier for users.
More battery life
Manufacturer-rated battery life is increased from 9 to 10 hours, which should be sufficient for field workers and staff who are mobile throughout the day. USB-C charging allows staff more charging options when away from their workplace
Write, draw, share and capture
With exemplary handwriting recognition, drawing and painting, the Surface range provides a superior Pen experience with support in applications including Office 365, Adobe CS and a multitude of Apps. When not in use, the optional Surface Pen can be stowed on the Go 2's frame using strong concealed magnets.
5 megapixel front and 8 megapixel rear cameras are carried over from the first Go and are ready for Skype, Zoom, Teams and Hangouts and Full HD video recording.
