Microsoft bringing Surface Book 2 to all Surface markets

Microsoft Surface Book 2 13 inch and 15 inch

Microsoft Surface Book 2 packs Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 or 1060 discrete graphics, depending upon which configuration you choose.

Microsoft has announced that their popular Surface Book 2 Laptop is coming to India and all other markets where Surface devices are available. The original Surface Book was launched in 2015, but India was left off the grid of countries that would get the device. That apart, Microsoft also claims that the Surface Book 2 offers "five-times" better graphics performance as opposed to its predecessor and claims that it offers double the power of MacBook Pro. When combined with the Surface Book 2's Core i7 processors, the Surface Book 2 does have a good stab at 1080p gaming, though you may have to tweak a few settings in the most demanding games. While the claims can not be verified at this point, the Surface Book has always been the most powerful portable offering from the Microsoft's stable and the Surface Book 2 is no different.
