Microsoft To Defy Trends In Surface Pro 5 With 4K UltraHD And AMD Ryzen; October Launch Expected : Trending News : Unive…


The rumor mills have been churning non-stop about the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 and the reports are favorable to the consumers. The latest of which supports a Microsoft and AMD partnership to finally resolve the battery draining issues reported with the Surface Pro 4. Previous reports state that the Redmond-based giant may opt for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 635 chipset to resolve the high power consumption associated with the Intel Kaby Lake processor. Then AMD Ryzen 7 CPUs were launched recently boasting of high performance and energy efficiency that fits what the latest Surface Pro product needs.


Even if it were true, it's still not worth putting up with Windows 10 for. Microsoft's already changed Windows 10 so you have no choice but to take "critical" updates, no matter how large they are and no matter if you are on a metered connection, so what's going to happen when they decide to force all their updates onto a machine you can't rip the hard drive out of?
