Microsoft Event: Microsoft Updates the Surface Go 3 with Faster Intel Processors.

Microsoft unveiled the follow up to the Surface Go 2: The Surface Go 3. Both devices are pretty identical, having the same 10.5-inch 1920 x 1280 display, the same set of cameras, speakers and ports.

One significant difference is the new Intel Processors on the Surface Go 3. It can be configured with an Intel Pentium Gold 6500Y or Core i3-10100Y, which Microsoft says is about 60 percent faster than its predecessor. The Go 3 supports Microsoft Pen protocol, though a stylus is not included.
