Microsoft Ponders AMD’s 16-thread R7 4800U CPU for their Next-Gen Surface Laptop

They do decide to use the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U CPU (16-thread ) for their Next-Gen Surface laptop … it could be one of the most powerful laptop available on the market!

Taken from Tom’s Hardware … Hardware detective Tum_Apisak from Twitter has dug up a 3DMark entry surrounding the new AMD Ryzen 7 4800U. This is a low-power mobile chip that packs a whopping eight CPU cores, but what’s interesting about the entry is that it looks to be embedded in a Microsoft device.

The entry does not detail which specific Microsoft device the R7 4800U was tested in, but it wouldn’t come as a surprise to see this year’s Surface Laptop come equipped with it. Last year, Microsoft packed mobile Ryzen 3000U chips into the Surface Laptop 3, which we tested with an AMD Ryzen 5 3580U (Microsoft Surface Edition) chip aboard.


Given that the new chips would drop down to the 7nm fabrication process and the newer Zen2 architecture, it wouldn’t come as any surprise to see significant increases in performance, thermals, and battery life compared to the 3000U series, which were fabricated at 12nm and Zen+ — which would translate to significant performance increases for the Microsoft Surface Laptop 4.
