Report: Surface Pro 5 to employ a new processor but overall has very few changes31
According to a new report, there will not be that many changes between the current Surface Pro slab and the next one. Windows expert Paul Thurrott says that he has been told by a source that the Surface Pro 5 will be powered by the Intel Kaby Lake processor. That, notes Thurrott, is the big change coming to the Surface Pro 5. The chip is made using a 14nm process. Using the new processor should make the Surface Pro 5 speedier than its predecessor, and should also add improved battery life to the new slate.
The Surface Pro 5 will continue to employ the proprietary Surface Connect power connector, according to Thurrott. That means that you shouldn't expect to see Microsoft put a Type-C USB port on the device.
