"Microsoft says 'display output and data throughput capabilities are dependent on the USB-C docking solution used' and that the adapter will require an external power source with a minimum power output of 27W (Watt) and 12V (Volt) to power displays and the laptop," the report added. Except for Microsoft's "Surface Book 2", "Surface Pro" and "Surface Laptop" do not currently support USB-C.
