The Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 is of the most anticipated devices this year. The Surface Laptop 3 released last year was very successful for what it was, and we’re looking forward to a repeat of that with Microsoft’s new Surface.
Recently, we’ve seen some leaked benchmark tests for the device appear online, and it seems like the Surface Laptop 4 may be equipped with an AMD Ryzen APU this time around.
These benchmarks straight from the 3DMark 11 database show that Microsoft is testing a laptop equipped with the AMD Ryzen 5 4500U APU and AMD Radeon RX 5300M mobile graphics cards.
The alleged Surface Laptop 4 in the benchmark test runs Windows 10 version 2004, with Windows Display Driver Model 2.7 (WDDM 2.7). The Ryzen 5 4500U, also known as AMD Renoir, is based on the AMD Zen 2 microarchitecture with a clock frequency of 2.3 GHz and six-cores running at a maximum of 4 GHz.
The AMD Ryzen 5 4500U is designed to run on ultra-thin notebooks, thanks to the 15W TDP, making it very suitable for something like a Surface Laptop. This is all very promising news, and we’re really hoping it results in a good product.
