Microsoft’s 2023 Surface Lineup Specs Leaked

Microsoft is gearing up to unveil its latest hardware offerings at the highly anticipated Surface 2023 event scheduled for September 21, 2023. Anticipated additions to their 2023 product lineup are the Surface Laptop Studio 2, Surface Go 4, and Surface Laptop Go 3. Recent leaks have provided insights into the specifications of these devices, offering enthusiasts a sneak peek into what to expect.

Surface Laptop Studio 2 Anticipated to Feature Intel’s 13th Gen CPU

Let’s dive right in and start our discussion with one of Microsoft’s most eagerly awaited Surface laptops, the Surface Laptop Studio. The highly anticipated Surface Laptop Studio 2 is rumored to come equipped with the latest Intel processors, with the leak specifically pointing to the Intel Core i7-13800H.

This particular processor boasts a base TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 45W, and according to Intel’s specifications, it can reach a maximum turbo power of 115W. However, the final turbo power limit of a CPU when integrated into a specific laptop is determined by the computer manufacturer, taking into account cooling constraints. You can find more information about the 13th-Gen Raptor Lake processor lineup for laptops elsewhere.

Surface Laptop Studio

If we draw parallels to what Microsoft did with the previous iteration (which featured the i7-11370H), it’s reasonable to expect that the Surface Laptop Studio 2 could push its performance to approximately 50W. In contrast to its predecessor, the rumored chip for the Surface Laptop Studio 2, the i7-13800H, boasts 14 total cores, comprising 6 P-Cores and 8 E-Cores. It’s expected to have a maximum boost clock of 5GHz, although the actual performance will depend on the cooling solution implemented in the upcoming Surface Laptop Studio 2.

Furthermore, the leaked information also indicates that the laptop will offer configurations with either 16GB or 32GB of RAM and storage options of 512GB or 1TB. It’s highly likely that this RAM will be DDR5 memory, which brings several enhancements compared to DDR4. Additionally, the leak mentions that the new display will measure 14.4 inches diagonally, with a resolution of 2400×1600 pixels in a 3:2 aspect ratio.

Surface Go 4 and Surface Laptop Go 3 Specifications Leaked

The forthcoming Surface 2023 lineup certainly holds some intriguing developments. To begin with, the Surface Go 4 is anticipated to make a notable shift from ARM processors to Intel chips, potentially featuring the Intel N200 Quad-Core processor, a member of Intel’s Alder Lake N series. The decision to forego an ARM processor altogether is an interesting departure from previous models.

In the case of the Surface Laptop Go 3, it’s somewhat disappointing to note that it may rely on a last-generation Intel chip, specifically the Intel Core i5-1235U. While this chip does offer 10 cores in a configuration of 2 P-cores and 8 E-cores, the absence of a 13th-generation chip is noticeable. It seems that Microsoft might be reserving the 13th generation for their higher-end laptops.

Surface Go 3

Regarding RAM and storage capacities, the leaked information suggests that the Surface Laptop Go 3 may come with variants offering 128GB and 256GB SSD capacities, with an option for 8GB of RAM. The Surface Go 4 is also expected to offer 8GB of RAM, with the possibility of completely dropping the 4GB RAM variant. For storage, the Surface Go 4 could be available in 128GB or 256GB SSD configurations.

As for the overall outlook on the Surface 2023 lineup, it’s clear that Microsoft is making some strategic choices with its processors and configurations. However, the full extent of their lineup remains uncertain, as they might unveil additional Surface hardware during the event. The Surface 2023 lineup appears to offer a range of options catering to different user needs, and it will be interesting to see how these devices perform and are received by the market once officially launched.
