While a Microsoft event is scheduled for September 22, 2021 to announce the new Surface Pro hybrid tablets, a leak shows key features: a 120Hz screen, 11th generation Intel Core processors and Thunderbolt ports.
Nearly 23 months after announcing the Surface Pro 7, Microsoft will finally revamp the laptop — or tablet, a matter of point of view… — mixed in with a presentation expected on Wednesday, September 22nd. So the manufacturer, who is also the publisher of Windows, will take advantage of the announcement of Windows 11 a little later, on October 5, to promote its new PCs.

Some of the leaks have already set the tone for the specs of the new Surface Pro 8. So, until it’s up to date, it will ship a 13-inch 2K display and, above all, a 120Hz refresh rate. This will allow the frequency of the tablet to comply with the dynamic refresh rate technology announced in Windows 11, allowing it to provide more fluidity while saving battery.
The Surface Pro 8 will be powered by an 11th generation Intel Core processor. The exact model is unknown, but this switch to the Tiger Lake platform will allow to take advantage of Thunderbolt ports, two in number. So Microsoft won’t wait for the so-called 12th-generation Intel mobile Alder Lake processors, which will likely be presented at CES in January 2022.
Finally, somewhat unexpectedly, the SSD can be removable, thus eventually offering the possibility to include more storage.
According to the information he obtained the edgeMicrosoft’s event on September 22 will be a chance to introduce us to this new Surface Pro 8, but also the Surface Go 3, Surface Book 4, and Surface Pro X. It’s great software!
