So Microsoft has announced their new Surface Pro 9 for 2022, and as expected it looks the same but has some different features. The features that stick are the Thunderbolt 4 ports and 120Hz pixel sense display. New in this version is a 12th gen Intel processor or if you are daring enough an ARM SQ3 processor with a 5G connection. Additionally, the Surface Pro 9 has an improved 1080p webcam.
The Intel version can get spec’d up to 32GB LPDDR5 RAM and 1TB SSD with an expected battery life of 15 hours. The Intel base model comes with a Core i5, 8GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD priced at $999.
The ARM version is limited to 16GB LPDDR5 RAM and 512GB SSD but will last you 19 hours of battery life. The ARM base model has a Microsoft SQ3 CPU, 8GB RAM, 128GB storage, and supports 5G connection priced at $1300.
The Microsoft Surface Pro 9 (2022) is averaging nan out of 10 from 3 reviewers. These are some of the most trustworthy and well-known websites or YouTubers in the tech space. Here is what they say about the Microsoft Surface Pro 9 (2022).
Microsoft is launching a single Surface Pro 9 lineup for 2022. It marks the blending of Surface Pro X and Surface Pro, as you can now pick between Intel or Arm.

New colors and a 5G option come to some of Microsoft’s Surface PCs.
The Surface Pro 9 is pretty much what we expected: a jump up to Intel’s 12th-gen CPUs. But Microsoft surprised us with a huge shakeup for its tablet PCs. There’s also a Surface Pro 9 running a custom SQ3 ARM chip, which also includes built-in 5G. Can an x86 Intel processor and a mobile ARM chip really sit side by side? We got a chance to compare the two new machines at Microsoft’s hands-on event, and to be honest, we just have more questions.
