Windows 10 gets 3D and VR revamp as Microsoft Surface gets a studio

Microsoft just hosted its Windows 10 event, where it unveiled new devices built on Windows 10 as well as new capabilities for the operating system itself.

“Technology is a tool in the hands of humanity,” said Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella. “A tool that helps amplify our ingenuity and creativity.

“But new computing mediums do not take shape by technology alone. It is up to the creators to seize the moment and bring this technology to life.”

CBR looks at some of the biggest announcements from the Windows event, including new devices, apps and software updates.

Two sets of devices were announced at the event; the Surface Studio and the Surface Book with Performance Base. They are available for pre-order from 26 October.

The Surface Studio, priced at $2,999, is targeted at the creative industries. It is designed to be used as a canvas and can be used upright or drawn on like a table.

It packs either an i5 or i7 processor and up to 32GB of RAM. The device has a 4.5k ultra HD screen, which Microsoft says delivers 63 percent more pixels than a premium television.

There are also new Surface Book models, which feature i7 processors and have twice the graphics processing power as the original Surface Book. It has 16 hours of battery life, according to Microsoft.

The devices start at $2,399.
