Microsoft Surface 2 Coming to Lose Microsoft Loads More Money

By Gary Cutlack on at

Despite costing Microsoft an enormous amount of money already, the software giant is seemingly set to continue its push into Microsoft-brand tablet hardware, with benchmarks suggesting a Surface 2 is on the way. And it'll be joined by a Pro model, too.

The ARM-powered Surface 2 machine will be running the RT version of Windows, with benchmarks discovered by Tabletguide.nl suggesting a Tegra 4 chipset may be powering the forthcoming tablet's 1080p display. For those preferring the standard Windows 8 experience, an Intel-powered Surface Pro 2 is also in the pipeline, with sources suggesting it'll arrive running on a Haswell-based Core i5 processor with a standard 8GB of RAM.
