Surface 3 tablet to be powered by NVidia Tegra K1; Surface Mini also expected

With the recently announced Samsung TabPRO series getting high expectations in the industry, Microsoft too plans on outing its annual Surface tablets, which it hopes would compete with the new Android tablets.


According to sources, Microsoft is scheduled to launch the Surface 3 tablets later this year. While we have no details about the specs of the device, it is said that the recently announced NVidia Tegra K1 processor, which is known for its 192 cores, would be powering the tablet. Obviously we can expect the latest update of Windows 8.1 running the device.

Apparently there won’t just be a Surface tablet but sources also believe that the company is working on a Surface Mini tablet to compete against the wide market of 7 inch tablets. The Mini version is expected to sport a 1080p display besides support for the latest Intel processors. Given the current trend, it is hard to imagine if Microsoft could actually compete against the Android tablet market.
