Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 with AMD Renoir Surface Edition Pops Up

If you are inclined towards Surface laptops from Microsoft, the tech brand is finally here with their brand-new Surface Laptop 4 powered by the AMD Renoir Surface processor. While the users have been awaiting the launch of the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 with the Intel Tiger Lake chip, the brand also listed out the launch of the Surface 4 on Geekbench.

As per the listing on Geekbench 5 entry, the new Surface 4 is going to feature the latest AMD Ryzen 7 3780U Microsoft Surface Edition APU. But, with the lack of information concerning this, it is a possibility that this identification could be incorrect after all.

The new Ryzen 7 3780U MSE combines the power of Zen+ 4C/8T part featuring a base clock power of 2.3GHz along with a boost clock of up to 4GHz. The Geekbench listing further clarifies the codename of the APU as Renoir. So, if we did have doubts before, it is likely not going to persist anymore, especially with the Zen 2 Renoir APU.

Another factor that justifies the processor to be Renoir is the part stem scores that were achieved in the mentioned benchmark. For the base processor of Ryzen 7 3780U MSE that secures 940 points in the single core function and around 3050 points in the double core function, the new Ryzen MSE APU scores 1011 and 6211 points respectively in the test scores.

Unlike the previous generation, the new Ryzen MSE APU features the Vega 8 iGPU with up to 1.95GHz of maximum boost. The Vega 8 also managed to score around 14,075 points in the OpenCL computing test that was conducted by Geekbench.

The new Surface 8 is not going to feature any drastic changes to the design aside from the much-needed upgrade to the Tiger Lake APUs from the previous generation Ice Lake SKUs that is likely going to provide the users with tangle performance and productivity all the way through.
