Microsoft continues to push its own hardware line as it looks to take the fight to Apple in the tablet space with its Surface Pro range. Its latest model, the Surface Pro 4, has just hit the market, and V3 was quick to test it out.
Readers were clearly keen to see what we thought of the device, as it was the most popular story on the site last week, suggesting there could be strong interest in the Windows 10 hybrid.
Elsewhere, Intel used this year's Supercomputing Conference to officially launch its Omni-Path high-speed interconnect fabric and disclose details of an Xeon Phi workstation it plans to make available for developers. However, it did admit that its Knights Landing processor is now not set for general availability until next year.
V3 also had a chat with Trainline CTO Mark Holt about his role at the ticket-selling website, to hear how he's gone all-in with the cloud, and has plans to turn to data analytics in the year ahead to really improve performance.
