Can you believe it has been close to two years since Microsoft revealed its first all-in-one desktop? The Surface Studio has been here for a while now, and at its latest event, Microsoft revealed the new Surface Pro 2 system.

The revamped Surface Studio 2 might not look that different from the outside, but there is a lot of new things going on under the hood. There are upgraded NVIDIA Pascal-based graphics, up to 32GB of RAM, up to 2TB of SSD, and much more. Microsoft says this is the fastest Surface ever. The GPUs inside of the new Surface Studio 2 will include options for a GeForce GTX 1060 6GB and GTX 1070.

The same 28-inch display is here but this time Surface Studio 2 is 38% brighter, and has 22% more contrast. This is because Microsoft used a new LCD and oxide transistor technology. Microsoft has added USB-C support and Surface Dial integration with the new Surface Studio 2 including the latest and greatest Surface Pen.

Microsoft kicks off the Surface Studio 2 at $3499 which will give you 16GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD while the highest end model will cost $4799 and double the RAM to 32GB and double the SSD up to 2TB. This is a big change over the hybrid drives in the previous-gen Surface Studio, with Microsoft committing to an all-flash design with Surface Studio 2.

The new Surface Studio 2 is open for pre-order in select markets, with November 15 the day they'll start shipping.
