The jump in performance for a cheaper price is driven by the release of AMD's Ryzen CPUs which have taken the computer world by storm.

For example, the DigiTimes report noted that Intel cut the prices of some of its previous-generation processors including Core i7-6950X and G328 while Nvidia lowered its GTX 1080 graphics cards to $499 from a previous $699.

AMD's Ryzen 5 series processors, Polaris-based RX500 series GPUs and next-generation Vega series GPUs for the second quarter, but motherboard makers do not believe these products will have a significant contribution overall because AMD only has a limited market share now. The tagline for the technology says: "Intelligence powered by AMD" and it appears that the Surface Pro 5 is specifically built for multitasking and productivity. The trailer shows a scientist holding a device that looks to be the Microsoft Surface Pro which then leads to embedding a chip with the AMD logo on the head of Walter.

There was much hope in the industry when Intel released several Kaby Lake-based processors and 200 series chipsets including the Z270 in January.

The iMac 2017 is said to come along with AMD's new Ryzen 7 1800x, which the chips are able to deliver great performance and contain the capacity of a VR support, according to PC Advisor. Interestingly, speculations suggest that MSFT will release two different variants of its next-gen Surface Pro, including a variant with an AMD processor and another variant powered by Intel's latest processing chipset.

Intel has had a majority control over the CPU market which allowed them to overprice their products with minimal boosts in performance. A Microsoft Surface Pro 5 with Ryzen chips is the better choice as it offers better performance and possibly, at a lower price.

If Microsoft Surface Pro 5 would really be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 635 processor, it will also have a longer battery life as well as the addition of LTE for mobile connectivity. Stay tuned for more details.
