Surface laptop 3 amd
Unsurprisingly, Microsoft announced the Surface Laptop 3, a new product in its notebook series, at its Surface hardware event. Microsoft claims that its performance is three times that of Apple's current MacBook Air and is equipped with the fastest mobile processor in its class, that is, the ultra-thin notebook category.
Surface Laptop 3 has two form factors, 13.5-inch and 15-inch models. The highlight of the
version is that this 15-inch model uses the custom AMD Ryzen 7 3780U Zen + architecture, designed specifically for the Surface Laptop 3, called the Microsoft Surface Edition. The CPU is a redesigned iteration of AMD's existing Ryzen 3700U APU, with a 15W TDP and an RX Vega 11 graphics card. Consumers can also use the AMD Ryzen 5 3580U for a slightly cheaper 15-inch model. The news of the exclusive
APU with integrated Vega graphics comes as a blow to AMD as it continues to occupy a place in the market historically dominated by Intel. The 13.5-inch
version offers a choice of 10th Gen Intel Core i51035G7 or Intel Core i71065G7, both equipped with Iris Plus graphics.
In other specifications, Surface Laptop 3 offers 128GB, 256GB, 512GB or 1TB SSD and is equipped with 8GB or 16GB LPDDR4x RAM.
Microsoft designed the new product to be modular, especially through the easy-to-disassemble keyboard panel design, which allows access to the interior of the machine for easy upgrades and maintenance. Previous Surface products have been criticized for lack of upgradeable features, so it is good news to see that Microsoft is listening to consumers.
Other features include USBA and USBC ports, WiFi 6: 802.11ax, 20% larger glass trackpad, front camera, OmniSonic speaker, Farfield Studio microphone, touch screen technology, and redesigned charging function to enable the laptop to be charged according to In typical usage, the standard battery life is 11.5 hours, and it can charge more than 80% in less than an hour.
pre-orders have been opened, and the earliest delivery date is October 22. The price starts at $999 for the 13.5-inch and $1199 for the 15-inch. The 13.5-inch model is available in four different color combinations (sandstone, matte black, cobalt blue, and platinum with Alcantara finish), while the 15-inch version is limited to matte black and platinum with Alcantara finish.
Our take on the Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 is that it is not an imaginary game console, but rather a viable alternative to the Mac series of lightweight office and entertainment laptops. It will be interesting to see how it performs in nature.
