What you need to know

  • Alleged specs of the Surface Laptop 4 have leaked online.
  • It appears that both the 13.5-inch and 15-inch versions of the device will have options for Intel or AMD CPUs.
  • The device will reportedly launch sometime in April 2021.

Rumors continue to swirl about an upcoming Surface Laptop 4 from Microsoft. WinFuture recently shared alleged leaked specs of the Surface Laptop 4. Based on the report, the Surface Laptop 4 will have options for either AMD or Intel processors regardless of which size that you choose.

It seems that we won't have to wait long to see if the Surface Laptop 4 is one of the best Windows laptops. The report states that the Surface Laptop 4 will launch sometime in April.

It's unsurprising that the Surface Laptop 4 will have 13.5-inch and 15-inch options. This has been the case for the Surface Laptop line for years. What is different is that it appears that people will have a choice for AMD or Intel processors for each of the sizes.

Specifically, the Surface Laptop 4 will reportedly have options for the AMD Ryzen 5 4680U or AMD Ryzen 7 4980U. WinFuture notes that each of these will likely be "Surface Edition" chips. Some will be disappointed if these leaks turn out to be true, as AMD has newer chips in its 5000 Series.

On the Intel side of things, the Surface Laptop 4 will allegedly have options for the 11th Gen Intel Core i5-1145G7 or the Intel Core i7-1185G7.

The use of Iris Plus Graphics (64 EUs) is suspect as the Intel datasheet on those processors lists Iris Xe (96EUs) as the preferred GPU.

These are the alleged specs, as reported by WinFuture. These may not line up with what Microsoft ships.
