This is what we discover from an advertisement shared on eBay for a prototype (apparently almost finalized) of a Surface Pro 8. Listed for a price of 1300 dollars in the Seattle area, the latter allows us to have a fairly precise idea of what the next Surface Pro should offer, and this while Microsoft has not yet announced it.
As it stands, the design would not move an inch compared to the current Surface Pro 7, Microsoft reserving for the moment mainly the aesthetic novelties to its Surface Pro X, even if the 2020 model is also very close. of the 2019 grind.
Surface Pro 8 goes under Tiger Lake
The main new features would be hiding in the chassis anyway, with the switch to eleventh generation Intel Tiger Lake processors (instead of the tenth generation Ice Lake chips currently available). The prototype Surface Pro 8 on sale thus has a Core i7-1165G7, coupled with 32 GB of RAM (DDR4 at 4267 MHz according to the announcement). This is new, since the Surface Pro 7 was limited to a maximum of 16 GB of DDR4. The storage would take the form of a 1TB Samsung SSD on the best-equipped variant.
