AMD scores a big marketing win with Ryzen-powered Microsoft Surface

Surface creator on losing $1 billion

Although Apple CEO Tim Cook certainly hasn't pre-announced any dual-screen devices, the company's engineers are looking into it.

Surface Pro X is a new ARM-based Surface that boasts a Microsoft and Qualcomm designed SQ1 platform with full-fat Windows 10, an integrated AI engine and 4G LTE on board (expect a 5G version next year). The company has also launched a lower-end Surface Pro 7 for $749 that's more similar to its previous generations.

Microsoft isn't doing this alone, though. Though it runs Android, the back of the prototype has a Surface logo that resembles Windows. Right off the bat, though, we must highlight this potential game changer is not ready for primetime yet, with Microsoft feeling confident it will become so by the "next holiday" season. But the company didn't divulge any further specifications, which may be tied to the fact that the device's design apparently isn't final.

Preorders open Wednesday for an October 22 delivery; the 13-inch laptop will cost $999 while the 15-inch will cost $1,199. The new Surface Slim Pen is housed inside the top of the detachable Type Cover keyboard, and recharges while inside the Type Cover.

Microsoft is showing off the device a year early to get developers on-board, according to hardware chief Panos Panay.

Another highlight of the Surface Duo is that it also marks a new era of partnership between Google and Microsoft. However, it's now perplexing as to why the platform as it existed didn't have the right ingredients for Microsoft.

The Surface Pro X starts at $999. Microsoft claims it delivers 3x more performance per watt than the Surface Pro 6, which has a 15W quadcore 14nm Intel Coffee Lake-U 8 gen CPU. Instead of a single big screen that folds in half, the company has equipped the device with two 5.6-inch displays that are capable of functioning nearly as if they were separate devices. Microsoft is promising up to 24 hours of battery life, and says they're equally capable of playing your music as making business calls. Apps can be launched on the screen that it was opened, allowing for multiple apps to be used at the same time, but it is also possible to span a single app across both screens, changing the layout to fit the device's design. Among other expected announcements include a new custom version of Windows for dual screens. It even started selling Android handsets in its physical stores, partnering with Samsung to highlight some of the Windows 10 features that bring Android closer to PC. Describing the Surface Duo, Panay said it's "not only the new Surface, it's also a new category".
