Confirmed: Microsoft Surface really uses AMD processor
Earlier rumors, Microsoft will launch a Surface Laptop 3 15-inch in the October 2 conference, it is surprising, because of Microsoft use AMD Ryzen processors. Obviously, the Surface Laptop line with AMD Ryzen processors will be more competitively priced.
The integrated graphics cards for the AMD Ryzen R5 and R7 series APUs are Vega 8 and Vega 10. However, due to Microsoft’s customization of the CPU portion, specific integrated graphics performance may be slightly discounted due to specific endurance goals. On mobile devices pursuing battery life, the Vega 8 and Vega 10 are likely to be limited to 800MHz, and the actual floating-point performance is close to 0.8/1.1 TFLOPs.
Although it is not possible to confirm which product line is currently available, it is highly probable that this configuration belongs to the Surface Laptop product line based on product positioning. Microsoft’s unconventional approach may be to spread the price difference with competing products.
