    Windows 10 Creators Update and Surface Studio


    "Redstone 2" is officially Windows 10 Creators Update version 1703

    Today, we shared our aspiration to empower a new wave of creativity, with the Windows 10 Creators Update and the introduction of Surface Studio, Surface Dial, and a new Surface Book.



    With Windows 10, our goal is to have the effect of the Gutenberg Press on this next generation of computing, enabling 3D creativity, mixed reality, and eSports & game broadcasting for everyone.

    At our core, we believe each of us are creators. I’m personally inspired by creators who use technology to build a better world for each of us, who build communities with technology, and who develop revolutionary new ways to educate all types of students. However you choose to create, we are building Windows for each of you. We want to help you make your mark on the world and for Windows to be the place you love to create and play.

    New Surface Devices Designed for Creators

    From the beginning, our Surface journey has been about empowering people to work and create in new ways. It led us to create the first tablet that could truly replace your laptop with Surface Pro and to redefine the ultimate laptop with Surface Book. We believe there is a special alchemy when a device and software pair perfectly to create something new – a profound experience that can create an entirely new category. Today, we unveiled our next new category – an all new Surface device, designed for creators and professionals.



    Surface Studio turns your desk into a creative studio. It is a new class of device that transforms from a desktop PC into a powerful digital canvas, unlocking a more natural and immersive way to create on the thinnest display ever built. With a 4.5k ultra HD screen, Surface Studio delivers 63% more pixels than a state-of-the-art 4K TV. Surface Studio works beautifully with pen, touch, and the new Surface Dial.

    Surface Dial is a new input device designed for the creative process, enabling you to work with both of your hands. It integrates with Windows 10 to work with any Surface device for a faster and more intuitive way to scroll, zoom, and navigate. It also enables a set of unique experiences exclusive to Surface Studio, such as app-specific digital tools that allow you to quickly access shortcuts and move seamlessly through your workflow.



    Surface Book with Performance Base, the most powerful Surface Book yet, packs 16 hours of battery life into the same sleek, versatile design people love. It has more than twice the GPU processing power than the original Surface Book. No other laptop combines this combination of battery life, performance and pixels, in as lightweight a package.



    The new Surface devices will be available for pre-order starting today.

    The Windows 10 Creators Update

    Coming as a free update early next year 2017 to the more than 400 million devices running Windows 10 and available to Windows Insiders this week, the Creators Update will bring 3D and mixed reality to everyone, empower every gamer to be a broadcaster, connect people faster to those they care about most, and much more.

    3D for Everyone

    With the Creators Update, you and the millions of other Windows 10 users will turn on your laptop and be able to start capturing in 3D, printing in 3D, creating in 3D, sharing in 3D, and experiencing mixed reality.



    With more than 100 million monthly users, Paint is one of the most popular creation tools today, and with Paint 3D, anyone can now create and build 3D objects. We also unveiled Remix 3D, a online community to connect creators and creations around the world and bring 3D content to the masses. Trimble’s 3D modelling program SketchUp – and their millions of creators and creations from 3D Warehouse will be part of Remix3D.com. Office will be adding native support for 3D content next year.



    With Microsoft HoloLens, rich 3D content can break free from your screen and Microsoft Edge is the first browser to fully embrace 3D across devices. Showcasing the potential of this level of 3D immersion, we demo’d a prototype Houzz site where you can select furniture in the site and visualize it in your home before you buy it.

    Powerful and affordable virtual reality is coming to everyone with the Creators Update. HP, Dell, Lenovo, ASUS, and Acer will ship the first VR headsets capable of mixed reality with the Windows 10 Creators Update. And these accessories will be the first and only with inside-out, six-degrees of freedom. Unlike every other virtual reality headset in the market today, there will be zero need for a separate room and complicated setup. While the less immersive VR accessories today cost more than $500, or require a new expensive device, these accessories will start at just $299 and work with affordable laptops and PCs.

    The Best Experience in 4K Gaming and in Game Broadcasting

    The Creators Update will make it easy for you to create and enjoy live game streams and customized eSports tournaments on Xbox Live.

    Gaming is incredibly popular on Windows 10 – increasing 500% in the last year. The Creators Update will make it easy for you to create and enjoy live game streams and customized eSports tournaments on Xbox Live. Beam system integration will enable interactive broadcasting and viewing of gameplay on Xbox Live, so you can watch your favorite streamer play and interact with them in real time. The Creators Update will also bring user-generated tournaments via Arena on Xbox Live, so you can define the rules of competition, invite friends and track tournament progress seamlessly across devices.

    Plus, with a Windows 10 gaming PC, you’re able to play games like “Forza Horizon 3,” “Gears of War 4,” and more in 4K, in the highest possible visual fidelity.

    A Faster Way to Connect and Share with People who Matter Most

    The common thread between our most productive and our most fun moments is our people, those we share these moments with. Yet today, they are confined within separate applications, social networking apps, and email.



    With the Creators Update, we are placing people at the center of your Windows experience – right where they belong. Your most important friends, family, and co-workers will be instantly accessible. With Windows MyPeople, you can pin your favorite contacts to the Windows task bar and easily drag and drop any document, photo or video right on top of the contact for easy sharing. You can receive unique notifications, Shoulder Taps, and easily view and open emails, IMs, shared documents and more, all in one place. The Windows MyPeople experience is also integrated across universal Windows apps for easy sharing.



    We are excited for you to try the Creators Update and our expanded family of Surface devices, and we can’t wait to see what you’ll create.

    Not gonna lie, Surface Studio looks really, really nice.

    The only thing I don't get is why they've gone for 3:2 Aspect Ratio, when not only is the majority of video 16:9 (meaning either cropped video or black bars when watching video full screen), but also 16:9 gives more room for pallets to the sides of the canvas than the squarer 3:2 aspect ratio, which I would have thought would be more useful for this type of device. It's not the end of the world, I just don't understand why they've made that particular decision?

    I understand today Microsoft released a device whose only purpose was to download updates and keep itself up to date. Also, certain devices will offer complete integration with ZOMBO.COM.

    Why is it anytime I see information such as contained in this post I think of "Conflict of Interest"?

    Microsoft develops the OS. Microsoft sells it own brand of Computer. I think the OEMs have good reason to be concerned about their future.

    Don't Apple do the same?

    Yep, Apple do exactly the same (though not as well), it's called business, (or capitalism depending on your view). It's any business' aim to as much as possible gain a monopoly in their market. of course from the consumers point of view as well as the research and development competition is a good thing.
