Microsoft tries its hand at an ultra-high-end All-in-One PC with the Surface Studio

Posted on Wednesday, October 26 2016 @ 18:49:03 CEST by


At today's Windows 10 event, Microsoft showed its Surface Studio. The maxed-out version of this device features an Intel Core i7 series processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M GPU, 32GB DDR4 memory, a 2TB HDD and a 28" screen with a 3:2 aspect ratio and a massive 4500 x 3000 pixels resolution! The Surface Studio has an aluminium body, a thickness of just 12.5mm and it has a "zero-gravity hinge" that lets you transition the screen from desktop to studio mode.

While it does look pretty cool, the bad news is the pricing of this Apple iMac rival starts at a massive $2,999. Limited availability is planned for this holiday season, with more volume coming in early 2017.
Surface Studio is a new class of device designed for how people naturally create and bring ideas to life. The 28-inch PixelSense™ Display immerses the user in 13.5 million pixels of pure, true-to-life color, and the Zero Gravity Hinge allows the screen to effortlessly adjust to each stage of the creative process. When the screen transitions from Desktop Mode to Studio Mode, it sits at a 20-degree angle, the same angle as a standard drafting board, making it ideal for sketching, writing and designing.

The 6th Generation Intel® Core™ processors accelerated by a discrete NVIDIA® GeForce® GPU deliver smooth and immersive graphics performance and the power to run professional programs such as Siemens’ NX™ software,2 taking people through their workflow from end to end. Now architects can sketch their ideas with the Surface Pen, put them into production using powerful 3-D modeling software, and review and mark up plans with a client, all on one device.

Surface Studio starts at $2,999 estimated retail price (ERP) USD. It is available for pre-order today in the U.S. through Microsoft Stores, MicrosoftStore.com and BestBuy.com, and will begin shipping in limited quantities this holiday with broader availability in early 2017.

Also coming up is the Surface Dial, this peripheral will ship on November 10 for $99:
Surface Dial is a new peripheral designed for the creative process. It integrates with Windows 10 to work with Surface for a faster and more intuitive way to scroll, zoom and navigate. The Dial also enables a set of unique experiences exclusive to Surface Studio. When you place the Dial directly on the screen, it brings up a set of digital tools specific to the app that is open, allowing people to more seamlessly move through their workflow. For example, with Surface Dial, artists can change the color or the size of their brush tip as they paint without ever moving the pen away from the screen. The combination of Dial, pen and touch creates a more immersive and tactile way for people to create in digital environments. Partners like BlueBeam Inc.,2 Drawboard,2 Mental Canvas,2 Siemens PLM Software,2 Silicon Benders,2 Smith Micro Software, Inc.2 and StaffPad have already optimized their software to take advantage of the new experiences Surface Dial provides.
