Productivity and gaming laptops are distinct categories, but sometimes the lines get blurred. That’s the case with Microsoft’s new Surface Pro 3 laptops. Microsoft accurately bills the Surface Pro 3 as its “most powerful laptop ever,” and while it still comes dressed in productivity attire, it has some optional gaming chops—though at a higher price than many laptops that are purpose-built for gaming.

The Surface Book 2 that these new configurations replace also had some gaming options, but this time around, discrete GPU options are based on Nvidia’s latest generation Turing architecture. Buyers with the requisite funds can optionally make the leap from integrated graphics to a GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q GPU with 4GB of GDDR5 memory on the 13.5-inch model, while the 15-inch model comes standard with a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q GPU with 6GB of GDDR6.
