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?
