Alleged specs of the Surface Go 2 recently leaked online. Twitter user rogame shared the alleged specs, which state that the Surface Go 2 will have Intel Core m3 and Intel Pentium variants (via Tom's Hardware). Specifically, the leak states that the Surface Go 2 will have variants powered by the Intel Core m3-8100Y processor and the Intel Pentium 4425Y processor. If accurate, the specs mean that the Surface Go 2 will see a significant bump in its second generation.
The first-generation Surface Go runs on an Intel Pentium Gold 4415Y processor that hits 1.6GHz. The leaked specs show a model with an Intel Pentium CPU 4425Y processor running at 1.70GHz with two cores, four threads, and no base boost. The potential Intel Core m3-8100Y variant would run at 1.10GHz, have two cores, four threads, and a boost speed of 3.4GHz.
Rogame states on Twitter that both models use the same SSD as the Surface Pro 7 and Surface Pro X.
As is the case with all leaks, these figures need to be taken with a grain of salt. The specs shared here do seem plausible, as they line up with some previous reports and rumors about the Surface Go 2. In our roundup of the Surface hardware we expect this year, we pointed to Geekbench scores that show a Surface Go 2 running the same Intel Core m3 processor shown in these recent leaks.
