Microsoft unveiled the new Surface Pro 7 on October 3rd and will release it next Tuesday on October 22nd, but before then the first Microsoft Surface Pro 7 benchmark scores have come in too.
So far it’s only the Surface Pro 7 Intel Core i5 (1035G4) model with 8GB RAM that’s been benchmarked in Geekbench 4, but it’s a start. Single-core Surface Pro 7 benchmarks have come in at over 5,300 while multi-core benchmarks have come in at close to 17,000 so far.
In terms of Geekbench 4 benchmarks, that’s a 35% benchmark improvement in single-core scores compared to the Surface Pro 6, but in real world use the performance increase should be felt a lot more since Microsoft have leaped from 8th gen. Intel Core processors in the Surface Pro 6, to 10th gen. Intel Core processors in the new Surface Pro 7, so that’s a significant upgrade jump on the processor front.
The max speed of the processor have also been increased to 3.64 GHz, not to mention that the graphics processor have improved its own performance by 100%.
Faster and newer RAM now that the Surface Pro 7 is powered by DDR4 RAM also improves the performance when doing heavy work.
Another performance increase of a different kind is the introduction of 802.11 ax Wi-Fi 6 cover, which Microsoft is just about the first to integrate on a tablet after HP Elite x2 G4, so the Surface Pro 7 Windows 2-in-1 tablet has the longest Wi-Fi range and strongest Wi-Fi cover of any Windows tablet you can buy today.
