Microsoft has started teasing us all with more information about its upcoming Surface event in New York City next month. Microsoft has sent another invite to members of the press today with a different image attached, and it clearly reveals the Surface logo and what looks like the shape of a processor. The invite also reveals that the event will start at 10AM ET on October 2nd. We understand that both Satya Nadella and Panos Panay will be in attendance, indicating that there will be some significant news this year.
Nadella didn’t attend last year’s Surface event, where Microsoft refreshed the Surface Pro and Surface Laptop lines with a new black option, unveiled a Surface Studio 2, and launched new Surface Headphones. Nadella’s attendance this year suggests that Microsoft has something significant to announce.

Rumors suggest that Microsoft will launch an AMD-powered Surface Laptop, a Qualcomm-based Surface, and a new Surface Pro with USB-C at the event in New York City next month. The event invite could well be hinting at these processor changes. Microsoft’s previous invite had 10/2 in silver shapes, and perhaps we’ll see more teases before October 2nd.
