Microsoft’s Surface Studio 2, first launched in the United States back in early October 2018, is now coming to the United Kingdom. The device is now available for pre-order online from the Microsoft Store UK, as first noticed by Windows Central.
Surface Studio 2 is somewhat of a massive upgrade in terms of performance over the original Surface Studio. It comes with a 35% boost in performance and 50% better graphics, thanks to Intel’s 7th gen i7-7820HQ processor and NVIDIA’s GTX 1070 GPU with 8GB of GDDR5 memory. The device is the fastest Surface ever, according to Microsoft.
The new Surface Studio 2 also comes with an improved display — in fact, it’s now 38% brighter and produces 22% more contrast.
In the UK, the Surface Studio 2 starts at a whopping £3,549 for the base model with the GTX 1060, 16GB RAM and 1TB storage. For £4,249 you can get 32GB of RAM with the GTX 1070. And for £4,749 you can get 2TB of storage, 32GB RAM, and the GTX 1070.
But if you do pre-order the device now, you will get a free pair of Surface Headphones which usually costs £329.99. And that’s a pretty good deal as long as you can get over the £3,549 pricing. Pre-orders ship on February 7.
