Ny Surface RT registrerad hos GFX Bench

Nya Surface RT på GFX Bench

Microsoft väntas arbeta på en ny modell av Surface RT och detta åtminstone delvis bekräftades nyligen då en ny tablet noterades hos GFX Bench. Enhetsnamnet anges till ”Surface 2” och plattformen är inte helt oväntat Windows.

Andra uppgifter som dykt upp är att denna tablet använder Nvidia Tegra 4 och har en skärmupplösning på 1 371 x 771 pixlar. Om man skalar upp den upplösningen får man 1 920 x 1 080 så förhoppningsvis är det också vad vi får se när den lanseras.

Internminnet anges till 2 GB och det ska även finnas minst 32 GB lagringsutrymme som även kan utökas via microSD-kort. Vill man ansluta denna tablet till exempelvis en tv eller datorskärm så finns micro-HDMI för den saken. Inte mycket att gå på, men kanske vink om vad vi får se framöver
