Coincide with the launching of the Surface Duo, Microsoft also took their time to update the Surface Go lineup. Marketed as the lowest variant on the Surface entrants, the Surface Go 3 now gets an update on its processor.
Microsoft Surface Go 3 is still compatible with keyboard and stylus accessories, but again all of that, unfortunately, has to be redeemed separately.
From a physical point of view, the Surface Go 3 did not receive any updates whatsoever. The tablet still looks the same as its predecessor – but the insides are now getting more powerful. The tablet comes with a 10.5-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The camera, speakers, and connectivity ports are the same.
The main variation is coming in the specs list. The Microsoft Surface Go 3 is powered by Intel Pentium and Intel Core processor options. For the Intel Pentium models, Microsoft utilizes the Pentium Gold 6500Y to replaces the Pentium 4425Y used in the second generation.
Meanwhile, the Intel Core model now brags an Intel Core i3-10100Y processor. According to the company, the update in the processor sector offers a performance increase that is 60 percent faster than the previous generation.
And just like other updates on the Microsoft Surface lineup, Surface Go 3 will also be running Windows 11. Another main feature of Microsoft Surface Go 3 is that it has a camera with Windows Hello support, supports optional Microsoft Pen, and is available with 4G LTE connectivity options. The GO-anywhere table is also capable to accompany its user for as long as 11 hours.
Price and Availability
This 2-in-1 PC will be available in early November 2021. Prices for the Microsoft Surface Go 3 start at $399.99.
