Microsoft has today announced updates to its Surface Pro line-up, featuring a more powerful 8th generation Intel processor over its predecessor. The new Surface Pro marks the return of numbered releases, with this one being called Surface Pro 6.

In addition, the new Surface Pro 6 also comes in black, a call-back to the original Surface RT and Surface Pro that shipped in 2012 and 2013. Surface Pro 6 will go on sale starting October 16 for $899.
