- Were you also unhappy with the spec choices Microsoft made for the Surface 4 laptop?
- Well, this time around you might be happy to know that a lot has changed since then.
- A leaked tech specs sheet for Surface 5 has shed a bit more light on this sensitive matter.
- Apparently, the devices come equipped with AMD Ryzen 6000 Rembrandt mobile APUs.
We know that Surface users and fans weren’t too thrilled when Microsoft announced that the Surface 4 would come packaged with Ryzen 4000 instead of the latest Ryzen 5000 processors.
And it seems like the company learned a valuable lesson there, as that could be changing this time around. A recently leaked spec document of the next-gen Surface Laptop 5 sheds a bit more light on the matter.
Apparently, this upcoming device will not only feature the latest Intel 12th Gen Alder Lake chips, but also the newest AMD Ryzen 6000 Rembrandt mobile APUs.
Microsoft won’t repeat the same mistake again with Surface 5
So, while the above-mentioned users were recuperating from the previous launch of the Surface Laptop 4, the Redmond-based tech giant took it upon itself to surprise everyone.
As we can see from the document leaked by WindowsPrime, the tech specs of the upcoming Surface Laptop 5 and the users are definitely in for a treat.
Judging from the leaked specs, it actually looks like Microsoft will be using custom Ryzen Rembrandt variants in the form of the 8C/16T Ryzen 7 6980U and the 6C/12T Ryzen 5 6680U.
However, we’re sure that many of you will also be excited about the upgrade to the GPU, seeing how RDNA 2 will finally replace Vega integrated graphics.
Ryzen 6000 also packs AV1 decode support as well as LPDDR5 support though it seems like Surface Laptop 5 will only feature LPDDR4X, at least according to this leaked document.
And if we are talking about the Intel SKUs, Surface Laptop 5 is allegedly getting the 14C/20T Core i7-1280P and the 12C/16T i5-1240P.
We’re hoping users will be happy with Microsoft’s latest decisions and find a Surface device that will suit their every need.
