New leak suggests Surface Laptop 5 to get latest AMD Ryzen processors

The Surface Laptop 5 has not yet been announced, but new information is filtering out which might make it one of the most intriguing Surface Laptops to appear in a while. A site called WindowsPrime.com has published what appears to be an official spec sheet for the as yet unreleased Surface Laptop 5 (via Thurrott), and unlike previous Surface Laptop models, which featured latest generation AMD chipsets as an option, unlike the Surface Laptop 4 which only offers a previous generation AMD processor.

The processor options, according to the spec sheet, are as follows:

Surface Laptop 5 13.5"

  • 12th Generation Intel Core i5-1240P processor
  • 12th Generation Intel Core i7-1280P processor
  • AMD Ryzen 5 6680U Mobile Processor with Radeon Graphics Microsoft Surface Edition (6 cores)

Surface Laptop 5 15"

  • 12th Generation Intel Core i7-1280P processor
  • AMD Ryzen 7 6980U Mobile Processor with Radeon Graphics Microsoft Surface Edition (8 cores)

In addition to the new processors, the new editions look to be sporting at least one Alcantara model, some hefty batteries, a "new improved design with PixelSense Flow 120 hz display," and removable SSDs configured in 256GB, 512GB, or 1TB options.

The Surface Laptop was the only model in the Surface family not to get an update with last fall's announcements, but it remains to be seen when we'll see these new versions, but hopefully sooner rather than later.
