If you’re planning on purchasing a new laptop, you’ll probably want to start your research with the Surface Pro 3 and Surface Pro 8. Both are fantastic gaming machines and offer the same experience. We will also take a look at the new Surface Book 3 and Surface Laptop Studio. While they don’t have all the bells and whistles of the Surface Pro 3, they are both worth looking at.
Surface Pro 3
The Surface Pro 3 blurs the line between gaming and productivity, and is Microsoft’s most powerful laptop to date. It’s priced higher than many gaming laptops, but has the performance to handle your favorite online games. It’s also capable of handling multiple tabs at once, which is perfect for multitasking. The downside is that it doesn’t come with discrete graphics, but it can handle lightweight games.
The Surface Pro 3 is capable of playing most popular PC games, including League of Legends. It also runs desktop applications like Office and Adobe Photoshop. It can even run multiple apps side by side, making it the perfect companion for gamers.
Surface Book 3
There are several ways to get a high-performance game on your Surface Book 3 and make it work well on the road. The first thing you need to know is what the system is capable of. You can play most games in medium or low settings on this laptop. However, it is not the best gaming laptop on the market. Its GPU isn’t the best, and you should check the recommended settings for your gaming needs before buying the device.
The second option is to use a mouse and keyboard with the Surface Book. This way, you can easily move between different tasks on the screen and keyboard. One advantage of the Surface Book over other gaming laptops is its thin and lightweight design. In addition, it can accommodate the clipboard.
Surface Laptop Studio
If you’re interested in playing League of Legends on your laptop, the Surface Laptop Studio may be an excellent choice. It comes with Windows 11 and includes a built-in GPU and support for DirectStorage, the same technology used by Xbox series consoles. This allows the GPU and SSD to communicate directly, which can significantly improve the loading and streaming of assets. To take advantage of DirectStorage, your Surface laptop should have a PCIe SSD.
In our performance tests, the Surface Laptop Studio performed well, but did not stand out. While it managed to handle light tasks well, it struggled to keep up with heavy tasks. In fact, the Razer Blade 14 consistently outperformed it.
Surface Book 2
If you’re considering purchasing a Surface Book 2 for League of Legends, there are several things you need to keep in mind. You’ll want to make sure that you buy a model that can deliver the best visual experience possible. That means a screen with a high resolution, a good processor, and a high-quality display. If you want to play in Windows Mixed Reality, you’ll also want to make sure that you buy a Surface USB-C to HDMI 2.0 adapter. The Surface Book 2 can deliver a 1,782 score on the 3DMark Time Spy benchmark, which measures both CPU and graphics. That’s about the same as an OMEN desktop gaming rig, which has dual GTX 1080 graphics.
The Surface Book 2 features a full-body magnesium alloy design. Its keyboard is detachable and has a dynamic fulcrum hinge. This hinge allows the tablet to balance the weight of the display without flopping backwards when the lid is opened. It also has two Surface Connect ports and an infrared sensor.
