Microsoft introduced Surface Laptop 4. It will be equipped with faster Intel and AMD processors.
We had to wait a while for the new member of the Surface series (Surface Laptop 3 appeared eighteen months ago). Behind him The thread snaps again and the touchscreen laptop continues to focus on a straightforward work experience. The foldable tablet functionality has been omitted for this occasion. Microsoft maintains the philosophy of providing a powerful, business laptop to a wide audience.
So there are no major design changes. Both the 13.5 and 15-inch models are very similar to their predecessors. Both devices will be equipped with Intel’s new 11th generation chipset. The 13.5-inch version will get AMD Ryzen processors for the first time. Microsoft has opted to use the slightly older Zen 2 chips, rather than the more powerful Zen 3 version.
Models with an Intel CPU are said to be up to 70 percent more powerful, while the battery can last up to 19 hours on a full charge. To achieve this outstanding performance, Microsoft relies on the latest mobile processors, which are now very advanced.
Moreover, the specifications have not received a major update. Surface Laptop 4 has the same PixelSense screen with 201 pixels per inch. Windows Hello webcam has a resolution of 720p and offers USB-C and USB-A ports the same connectivity as its predecessor. Unfortunately, there is a missing Thunderbolt port, which could have enabled lightning-fast data transfer to external hard drives. One possible explanation is that AMD chipsets do not originally support Thunderbolt.
Microsoft appears to be continuing the positive streak of the past, and with new processors they theoretically have enough power under the hood to once again live up to their reputation as a pointless business column. The new Surface Laptop 4 is available for pre-order.
