Just a day before Microsoft’s hardware event, renders of three Surface products have leaked online. The leaks include the Surface Pro 7, Surface Laptop 3 13-inch, Surface Laptop 3 15-inch, and an ARM-powered Surface device as well. This suggests that Microsoft may be launching these devices tomorrow, alongside a new dual-screen Surface product as well. The renders of this mysterious device haven’t been leaked, but we won’t have to wait a whole lot to hear official details. The Microsoft Surface event is set to begin at 10am ET (7.30pm IST) tomorrow.
Tipster Evan Blass has leaked multiple renders of the Surface Pro 7, Surface Laptop 3 13-inch and Surface Laptop 3 15-inch. The successor of the Surface Pro 6 launched last year seems to see little change in terms of design. We can see the fully functional hinge, traditional bezels on all sides of the display, and ports on the sides. There’s a USB Type-C port, USB Type-A port, and a microSD card slot seen. The detachable keyboard is also making a comeback, and while the design seems to have been retained, the internals should have been upgraded.

The Surface Laptop 3 13-inch and 15-inch have also leaked in renders, and the design language seems to be more or less similar to the Surface Pro 2 variants. It has a more traditional laptop architecture, and a thin frame. Previous leaks suggest that the laptops will offer a 3:2aspect ratio, and the larger 15-inch model will likely support the Surface Pen as well.

Blass has also leaked renders of an ARM-powered Surface device that is seen donning the flip stand design, and support for the Surface Pen as well. Little else is known about this device at the moment. The tipster suggests that the dual-screen Surface is also slated to launch alongside these products, but hasn’t shared any renders of the same.
The Surface Book 3 is also expected to launch at the October 2 event, and it is tipped to pack Nvidia GeForce RTX GPU with Turing architecture. All the new Surface devices will most likely be powered by 10th-gen Intel Core processors and may include USB Type-C Thunderbolt ports.

India’s tour of Australia began on Friday with the first of three one-day internationals in Sydney — the city will also host the second ODI, two Twenty20 fixtures, and the third test match — and will run for nearly two months as the two cricketing giants go head-to-head across all three major formats.

Steam has received support for PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller and features like LED, trackpad, rumble, and gyro are currently working in the public beta Steam desktop client. The controller will be recognised and will work with all games currently using the Steam Input API. An official post on Steam community forum states that the LED, trackpad, rumble, and gyro features will work with several games, but it does not mention any support for the controller’s signature adaptive triggers. The post also states that platform-wide support will be added for DualSense controller after further testing.A few weeks ago, Valve added initial input support to Steam for the PS5 DualSense controller and at the time, rumble, trackpad, and gyro features were not implemented. After adding these features to the client, Valve has now announced that games using the Steam Input API will recognise the controller. The games that will support LED, trackpad, rumble, and gyro features include Death Stranding, No Man’s Sky, Horizon Zero Dawn, and more. For now, this support is available in the public beta Steam desktop client and to test it out, users will have to opt in for the beta.Valve has also shared that developers will not have to update their games or release patches. The stable release for these features will be added platform-wide after further testing. As of now, there is no exact release date.For developers who are already using Steam Input API in their games, they won’t have to do anything further to enable support for these features. The developers who are not using Steam Input API will have to enable Steam Gamepad Emulation for PlayStation controllers by default.Valve says the number of daily average users playing a Steam game with a controller has more than doubled in the past two years. “The growth in controller usage has been even higher among players using PlayStation controllers, which has grown in the past two years from 10.9 percent of controller play sessions to 21.6 percent of all controller sessions across Steam,” Valve adds.iPhone 12 Pro Series Is Amazing, but Why Is It So Expensive in India?
