Next-gen Surface Pro should feature Haswell-based processor

Microsoft may have just slashed the price on the current Surface Pro, but now we're hearing about the next-gen Surface Pro. The refreshed Surface Pro should look the same on the outside, but it would use an Intel Haswell-based processor.




With a Haswell-based Surface Pro, it would be better on battery life, but it would also bring better graphics performance too. The Verge has reported that the refreshed Surface Pro would see an increase to 8GB of RAM which would help for multi-tasking, that's for sure. The Surface RT version of the refreshed tablet should see a Tegra 4 SoC, which will be a great upgrade.


It is being reported that the Surface RT tablet will drop the "RT" part of its name, which is reportedly to stop the confusion that is experienced between Surface tablets. My opinion? RT has a bad name on the market right now, especially with the huge $900 million write-down, for example.
