Surface Studio 2 experienced a complete specification crash with Nvidia Pascal graphics, Intel 7th generation Kaby Lake processor. In comparison, last year's Surface Studio featured an optional Nvidia Maxwell graphics card, a sixth-generation Skylake processor.

Overall, most users will see better graphics performance with these silicon enhancements. Pascal has wrapped around Maxwell graphics, so you can make your game easier with higher quality settings. Of course, creatives are most useful for displaying complex 3D art, large artwork, and high-definition video without breaking the GPU.

The transition from Skylake to the Kaby Lake processor basically boosts 4K streaming and provides basic and boost slightly faster. Clock speed

These complex file rendering are typically handled by the processor. For this reason, Intel was very disappointed not to have introduced the H-series processor, hexa-core, in the Intel 8th generation Coffee Lake series.

Thankfully, Microsoft also uses hybrid hard drives with 64GB to 128GB of integrated solid state storage for older NVMe SSDs. Also, after much criticism and community desire, Surface Studio 2 had a USB-C port that made the original desktop feel scarce.
