Microsoft Surface Pro 5 rumors: Delayed because of Intel's Kaby Lake CPU

It looks like we may already have an idea of what to expect from Microsoft's upcoming Surface Pro 5 tablet as new information came to light this week, pointing out some specifications for the upcoming Windows tablet. It is expected to be the greatest and fastest chipset offering from Intel.

Microsoft Surface Pro 5 release is delayed to 2017 because Intel's Kaby Lake processor will be released by the end of 2016. If so, the Surface Pro 5 would be the first tablet in that line to have its own dedicated graphics chip.

"Microsoft deserves credit for popularizing the Pro Slate category, typified by a premium tablet with PC-grade processing power, with an optional keyboard to further add to revenues and profit", says Peter King, Service Director, Tablet and Touchscreen Strategies, Strategy Analytics. Aside from the news that the company is waiting for the Kaby Lake processor, there is also talk that they are waiting for the Redstone 2. However, since the Kaby Lake CPU has yet to be released, the Microsoft Surface Pro 5 will be delayed.
