In just 6 days, this September 21, Microsoft plans to launch a new series of products, among which we find the Surface Laptop Studio 2. This equipment, as well as others, would have been exposed in a new leak, which also confirms the inclusion of NVIDIA’s RTX 40 graphics.
Let’s find out all the details and see if this second version is really worth it, even for gaming, or if, on the contrary, it is a simple minor update to the previous one.
What will the Surface Laptop Studio 2 be like?
Thanks to WinFuture we already know practically all the details of this new Microsoft team, days before the brand itself confirms it to us and puts it on sale.
Starting with its processor, we see a 13th generation Intel accompanied by a graphics card NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Series, so it doesn’t start badly. Its performance looks good.
As for the screen, it would be a 14.4-inch PixelSense with a 3:2 format (2400 x 1600 pixels) accompanied by a refresh rate of 120 Hz, in addition to having Dolby Vision support and a 1500:1 contrast. So we are talking about great screen quality.
If we go to RAM, we will see configurations from 16 GB to 64 GB LPDDR5X, to be chosen based on the user’s needs and budget.
The first one was not the best on the market. It is true that it was wonderful for work, however, you couldn’t leave it and also use it for leisure with video games, for example, since its graphics didn’t allow you much. In this case we see that great new GPU that would make this laptop much more versatile, being able to run titles like Starfield without problems.
As for its design, it maintains a composition practically the same as the first. Except for the addition of two ports, one USB-A and another to read microSD.
Regarding storage, we can find models from 512 GB to 2 TB of SSD disk.
Others of the characteristics that may be of interest would be:
- Bluetooth 5.1
- Wi-Fi 6
- 58 Wh battery
- Front camera: 8 MP with 1080p recording
- OS: Windows 11 23H2
- 323.28mm × 228.32mm × 18.94mm
In summary, we have a new version of a very similar design, but that provides us with new ports, processor, and above all its graphics card. Ideal for those who used the first one, but were also looking for the option of being able to play with it.
Now, how much does it cost? Well, it must be said that it is not exactly cheap, and depending on the option chosen, even less so. We would go from 2,249 euros for the model with 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage to 3,700 euros in its most pro version, with 64 GB of RAM, 2 TB of SSD, as well as the Intel Core i7-13800H and the GeForce RTX 4060.
The most basic model would not include this processor and graphics, just as with a more limited RAM it would prevent us from playing titles like Starfield fluently, so if you are thinking of purchasing it for this, you would have to go for the TOP model of the spectrum. Although, for that price you can build a good gaming PC, so I don’t know if it’s worth it.
