Next Surface RT tablet will have Qualcomm mobile chip


Microsoft will not be giving up on Windows RT straight away it seems, despite expectations not being met, with new rumours fleshing out about the next Surface RT range. According to new reports, some tablets will come with Qualcomm chips instead of NVIDIA, although the company will continue to use NVIDIA Tegra chips in some devices.

The Snapdragon 600 is the processor of choice right now, although the Snapdragon 800 offers more speed and a little trickle more battery usage. What’s interesting is the Surface RT will not only continue but Microsoft will invest in more than one model this time, with the possibility of a seven-inch and ten-inch Surface tablet.

Microsoft has started offering Surface RT’s to educational institutions for $199, possibly to get rid of inventory.
