The 3DMark benchmarking software has revealed a Microsoft laptop powered by an AMD Ryzen 4000 Series processor , and already rumors indicate that the company could have chosen an AMD processor to give life to the next generation of its Surface Laptop. .
The information is not far-fetched if we consider that the company already offers four 15-inch Surface’s Laptop 3 where you can choose between an AMD Ryzen 5 3580U or an AMD Ryzen 7 37080U, so use a 3rd Generation Ryzen (Zen2 @ 7nm) implies offering a much more complete product both in performance and autonomy compared to what Intel is capable of offering today.
The AMD Ryzen 7 4800U is an 8-core 16-wire processor under the Zen2 @ 7nm microarchitecture with Base / Turbo frequencies of 1.80 / 4.20 GHz, Radeon Vega 8 graphics (512 Stream Processors @ 1750 MHz) and a TDP of 15W. Now the only question is whether the Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 will have variants with Intel processors or not in any of the two available sizes since with the Surface Laptop 3 the 13-inch models use Intel processors while the 15-inch ones are from AMD.
