Surface Studio 2 is Microsoft’s “Floating Sheet of Pixels”

Microsoft built Surface Studio 2 for creatives who require high graphics, fast processing and vibrancy from their hardware. With its large 28-inch PixelSense touch display, the tech fades into the background allowing space to focus.

Surface Studio 2 has a 50 percent faster GPU, is 38 percent brighter, with 22 percent more contrast. With 4,096 levels of pressure, tilt sensitivity for drawing and sketching, and best-in-class ink latency, this new surface looks set to become the ultimate creative canvas. When in Studio Mode, (the one that’s not desktop mode), Surface Studio is a slim digital workspace. It’s just 12mm thin.

Microsoft says fans love the vibrancy of the luminous display, describing it as a “floating sheet of pixels.” Surprisingly, Surface Studio isn’t equipped with the latest 8th generation Intel Quad Core processors like the new Surface Pro 6 or Surface Laptop. It’s equipped with a 7th generation processor.
