Just ordered one. Anyone else have 3k to throw at this monster?
As far as I know you aren't charged until the device ships so my wishful thinking is maybe my local Microsoft store will carry the 1Tb model in store and get it in before then, probably not, but who knows. Going to give them a call today to see if there is an update on the 1Tb model because up until now its been like "Yeah its a thing we just don't know anything about it."the mission of patience
Not sure you're gonna get it in your hands before the end of the year my friend.
Well, I guess every model slipped to 7-8 weeks, so at this point it doesn't matter which one...
If they would have put thunderbolt on it then you could have got into eGPU's, until then I'm going to have to keep my desktop around to play more intensive games. The day I can plug my surface out to a 980ti is the day I no longer need my desktop. Maybe next year.I've got one ordered, also. Having 1TB onboard completes the mission of replacing the desktop.
It would definitely be preferable for Microsoft to directly support an eGPU but that seems unlikely to me, but so did a GPU in a surface so who knows, anything could happen.IDK, thunderbolt doesn't seem to be gong anywhere. Any kind of eGPU would be better going direct thru the Surface Connect port. However, to date 3rd parties haven't been too keen on the Surface aftermarket.
