Uplevel your meeting presence with NPU-enabled capabilities. With 15 TOPs of powerful acceleration, the NPU lets you run intelligent camera and audio effects on Surface Pro 9 with 5G without compromising battery life or performance, including:

 

  • Automatic Framing that keeps you always centered in the frame even as you move.
  • Portrait Background Blur that highlights you in high definition while your background is softly blurred.
  • Voice Focus that captures your voice clearly and suppresses background noise in your environment, like that leaf blower outside your window while you take a conference call.

Ultra-fast and super secure 5G means you can download files instantly, stay connected on video calls when there's no Wi-Fi, and keep company data safe from anywhere.

With a mobile workforce, security is paramount. Secured-core PCs provide the most secure Windows 11 experiences for your most crucial data.

 

Pluton is here

Almost two years in the making since we announced the Pluton processor, Surface Pro 9 with 5G is our first device to include the next-generation "root of trust" technology. Pluton is a security processor that removes the potential for a communication channel to be attacked. It protects credentials, user identities, encryption keys, and personal data by storing them securely within the Pluton processor, which is isolated from the rest of the system.

 

Meet the blazing fast Surface Laptop 5

The modern workplace has changed in the last few years. Employees need high-performance devices they can set up wherever they work that still have the guts to get everything done. Keeping connections strong with a dispersed workforce is a massive challenge. Especially in highly collaborative teams, technology must facilitate building and maintaining solid relationships with colleagues and customers alike.

Employees can connect to external monitors and charge their devices simultaneously with USB-C and Thunderbolt™ 4, connecting to up to two 4K monitors at 60Hz to deliver superfast connections.
