Last week, it became known that Microsoft is preparing a certain device on the AMD Ryzen 5 4500U processor. Apparently, this device may be the future Surface Laptop 4. Now there is information that in the older versions of this system the flagship Ryzen 7 4800U will be used.
Internet Snoop Tum_apisak discovered in the 3DMark database is another Microsoft device that runs on the basis of the more productive AMD Ryzen 7 4800U chip. This energy-efficient processor offers eight cores and sixteen virtual threads. Its base frequency is 1.8 GHz. In automatic overclocking, it can increase to 4.2 GHz. The chip is presented with different TDP levels from 10 to 25 W, and also uses eight Vega graphics cores with a frequency of 1750 MHz.
Unfortunately, the test does not provide information about the device itself, but we will not be surprised at all if we are talking about the new Surface Laptop model. Last year, the company introduced the Surface Laptop 3 series, and some of its options were offered by the Ryzen 3000U series processors.
It is interesting to note that the above-mentioned variants of last year’s Surface Laptop 3 were equipped with special chips developed in collaboration between AMD and Microsoft. For example, Microsoft Surface Edition variants were offered based on AMD Ryzen 5 3580U and Ryzen 7 3780U.
The new device seen in the 3DMark database uses the publicly available Ryzen 7 4800U chip, which will also be equipped with mobile devices from other manufacturers. However, it is too early to draw any conclusions. Perhaps in this case we are talking about an engineering sample that received exactly the same markings, but in the final version the chip will have a completely different name.
Given that the Surface Laptop 3 models were only available for sale in October 2019, the Surface Laptop 4 will have to wait at least until the fall of this year.
