The benchmark points to the following hardware configurations:Microsoft plans to announce a new Surface product equipped with AMD CPU rather than the latest chips from Intel. The Redmond firm is prototyping a Surface device, possibly a new variant of Surface Laptop with a 13.5-inch display that includes AMD Renoir APU and discrete GPU manufactured by AMD.
According to a 3DMark database entry, one model comes with AMD Ryzen 5 4500U APU and entry-level RX 5300M dGPU. There appears to be another variant of the same device with Ryzen 7 4800U. This could be the 15-inch variant of the Surface device.
Microsoft could use AMD’s accelerated processing unit (APU) in this unannounced Surface device to improve the performance.
