According to the foreign media WCCFTech report, like the Surface Laptop 3, Microsoft will also provide consumers with Surface Laptop 4 models with two screen sizes of 13.5 and 15 inches, supplemented by AMD/Intel processor options. However, the latest news from WinFuture pointed out that the AMD version of the Surface Laptop 4 will still use the Ryzen 4000 series processors with a thermal design power consumption of 15W instead of the latest Ryzen 5000 series SKUs.
WinFuture pointed out that Surface Laptop 4 will only provide two Ryzen 4000 series CPUs, supplemented by 16GB of storage.
Among them, the basic frequency of the Ryzen R5-4680U version is 2.0GHz / dynamic acceleration can reach 4.4GHz, and the high-end version is the Ryzen R7-4980U processor. The clock frequency is temporarily unknown.
It is not difficult to guess that the above two Ryzen 4000 series SKUs correspond to 6/8 core chips respectively. As for whether it supports hyper-threading, it remains to be further tested.
The report also pointed out that, like the previous generation, the CPU thermal design power (TDP) of the Ryzen Surface Laptop 4 notebook computer will remain at 15W (or due to the difficulty of improving the heat dissipation module of the thin and light body).
The strange thing is that on Intel processor-based models, Microsoft actually offers a doubled memory option (up to 32GB).
However, in terms of batteries, all sizes and models will use the 49Wh version. For users who pay attention to mobile battery life, this means that the 13.5-inch small-screen version is more suitable.
Finally, Microsoft has not disclosed more details such as the price of the Surface Laptop 4, and it is expected that the new product will continue its previous pricing strategy.
