Windows 10 is not the only thing cooking in the kitchens of Microsoft.
Developers and engineers are hard at work to create their next masterpiece, the Surface Pro 4.
Although not much is known about the device yet, a recent news confirms that the Surface Pro 4 might be very much like its predecessor, the Surface Pro 3.
A Broadwell processor has been contemplated for the powerful, reportedly fan less tablet.
This means that the device will be quiet, very quiet when it is on. This also implies that the device would be full of holes on the back panel to enable heat to dissipate.
Heavy usage thus, should not cause too much of a heat build up. Without a fan, the device is expected to be really thin. So it should be much thinner than the Pro 3.
It should however, be heavier than the Pro 3. The size of the screen and resolution should also be about 12 inches and 2160 by 1440 pixels.
The design of the Surface Pro 4 would not be very different from that of the Surface Pro 3. The battery is also expected to be along the same lines.
Surface pro 3 logged 44% more sales than its predecessor and with the high powered model, the device is expected to perform much better this time.
Of course, in case of the Surface pro 3 a larger screen was a big advantage and was one of the major causes of the growth of the sales. Pro 4 has to rely on its powerful specs to generate sales for itself as in terms of structural design, there is not much left to offer.
Talking about internals, let us take a look at what this device could house under its hood. The tablet is to come with a Broadwell Intel Processor as expected, but Microsoft is still not quite sure of the same.
Core M processors or power efficient Atom processors could be a better answer for any fan-less tablet but we are yet to see what would come of the deal.
Broadwell, if chosen could add, apart from lots of power, lots of heat, which will be a challenge for the device to dissipate, especially with no fan to cool the devices.
If the processor is not good enough, then the battery for the Pro 4 has to be more powerful so that people are coaxed into buying a Pro4 and give up the pro 3.
Broadwell processors would be less power hungry and should add 30% of power to the existing battery back up. 30% should add up to one and a half hours more of usage. Without a fan, much less power will be consumed, further boosting battery lasting.
