Microsoft Confirms That The Latest Surface Pro 2 Units Comes With Slightly Faster CPU Than Older Units

Surface Pro 2

Microsoft Surface Pro 2 was released to the market in October last year and it was powered by 1.6GHz Intel i5-4200U CPU. The Verge today reported that the latest Microsoft Surface Pro units comes with the 4300U CPU. The main difference between both these CPUs is 4300U being clocked higher, and it includes Intel’s Trusted Execution Technology for improved security.

Microsoft has confirmed this slight CPU upgrade in latest Surface Pro 2 units. They provided the following statement for the reason behind this upgrade.

 “Microsoft routinely makes small changes to internal components over the lifetime of a product, based on numerous factors including supply chain partnerships, availability, and value for our customers,”

“With any change to hardware or software, we work to ensure that the product experience remains excellent.”

If you are an early adopter of Surface Pro 2, does this new affect you? I don’t think consumers will really feel the difference because of this CPU upgrade. What do you think?

      depending on the customer support rep, they just may swap it out for you since it’s still under warranty. If you’re having issues just tell them you want an updated model which may resolve them. They did that for me with the 360 a long time ago, updated my first one to an updated model after I called in with a DVD drive issue.

    Lesson learned: don’t be an early adopter especially with Microsoft.
    WP user here.. people who bought a WP today get to control screen rotation whereas we had to wait 1 full year.
    but without early adopters the company can’t get off the ground.. So yeah u r doing a noble deed 😛
