    Today during Microsoft's Windows 10 event, the company announced the newest Surface device, the "Surface Studio" PC. It's meant to "transform the way you work," according to executive lead Panos Panay.

    Its LCD monitor is 12.5mm wide, which is the thinnest ever made, Panay said. The screen, which is touch-enabled, is 28 inches. It sports 13.5 million pixels, which is 63 percent more than 4K. Additionally, it comes with built-in wireless support for Xbox controllers, Panay said.

    The Surface Studio PC uses an Intel Core i7 processor and its performance is "unmatched," Panay said. It will also feature integration for Microsoft's Siri-like digital assistant, Cortana.

    Additionally, the computer features a new control input of sorts called the "Surface Dial." It allows the user to scroll through pages or make other selections. The Dial will also support some previous Surface devices, Panay explained.

    According to GameSpot sister site CNET, the Surface Studio PC is Microsoft's response to Apple's all-in-one Mac. Go to CNET to learn more about the Surface Studio PC.

It features a quad-core i7 processor, 1.9 teraflops of performance, and 16 hours of battery life. The "top-end" product launches in November; pricing has not been announced.
