A new world on the inside - New surface laptops with possible AMD configurations spotted.

Microsoft surface computers has been somewhat competitive on the market for awhile. With so many new CPUs on the market now they have begun manufacturing of their next generation of surface laptops.


It is no secret that Microsoft is planning to release a Surface Pro 8. An engineering sample landed on eBay earlier this month, after which the buyer confirmed that the device had a Core i7-1165G7 processor and an identical decision to the Surface Pro 7. However, there has been no sighting of a successor to the Surface Laptop 3, until now.


The first sighting of the Surface Laptop 4 does not confirm many details about the device, but it does offer a few tidbits. According to a listing by the Korean Agency for Technology and Standards (KATS), Microsoft has assigned the model number 1950 to the Surface Laptop 4, which is currently not listed in the company's System SKU reference document. The Surface Laptop 4 also looks like its predecessor, although we can only currently go off one picture. Similarly, KATS has published one picture of the Surface Pro 8. The agency has also confirmed that the Surface Pro 8 has the model number 1960, with an LTE version assigned the model number 1961. Both machines are expected to launch with Tiger Lake-U series processors, but Windows Central claims that there will be AMD configurations for the Surface Laptop 4. It is unclear what APUs Microsoft has chosen for the Surface Laptop 4 though, but we would expect them to be based on AMD's new Renoir architecture.

Thoughts: I probably won't be considering windows laptops considering their rather premium prices. But I would imagine some people who likes the feel of Surface over a competitor like HP would enjoy. Certainly hoping the AMD option is cheaper too.

Well I have no doubt they will come out with a new surface pro... It looks like a surface in the picture... But the surface line up have been a disappointment over the last several years. No the Surface X was meh.

Exactly. Bugged firmware, drivers and delayed Windows updates. It's the exact opposite of Google's Pixel line.
