Microsoft unveiled all-new Surface Laptops yesterday, and they’re of particular interest to AMD fans due to their inclusion of exclusively designed Ryzen processors. AMD has published some information on the aptly named Ryzen Surface Edition chips, which comprise the Ryzen 7 3780U and Ryzen 5 3580U.
Both CPUs boast unique performance enhancements such as a highly tuned idle to boost, an additional compute unit (over other Ryzen mobile chips) for extra graphics horsepower, AMD FreeSync technology, and a fully optimized pen interface and Bluetooth stack. Optimizations to the Windows OS and a constant monitoring system also ensure that the Surface Laptop 3 will stay cool while running at its best.
The co-engineering behind the Surface simultaneously provides unprecedented performance and all-day battery life in a sleek, lightweight design at only 3.4 lbs. Like an expertly crafted and finely tuned racecar, Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 offers a unique user experience through several key performance features.
