Is this new Surface Book in Black with 8th Gen Intel Core Processor!

Intel unveiled its 8th generation Core processors yesterday, which will be available on laptops first. Interestingly, Intel’s 8th generation Core processors promotional video includes what appears to be a black Surface Book. Microsoft hasn’t released Surface line in black since the Surface Pro 2 nearly four years ago.

The mysterious device in Intel’s video includes the exact same eject key found on the keyboard of the Surface Book and the unique fulcrum hinge that Microsoft uses on its laptop. However, it could be a marketing render.

Microsoft is planning to launch an LTE version of the Surface Pro in October, and it’s possible the company might also refresh its Surface Book with the 8th gen Intel Core processors at the same time. Microsoft was one of the first PC makers to opt for Intel’s Skylake processor for its original Surface Book, but the company struggled with the architecture and a new Connected Standby (Instant On) feature of Windows 10.
