Surface Go 3 benchmarks spotted with higher performance Intel CPUs

Microsoft’s 3rd-generation Surface Go may have been spotted on Geekbench with updated Intel CPUs. Seeing Surface Go 3 pop up on Geekbench means the device could be ready in time for Microsoft’s Surface hardware event this fall.

Introducing Microsoft Surface Go 2

Spotted by German site WinFuture, based on the benchmark info there are two variants of Surface Go 3 listed. According to the benchmark, the base model Surface Go 3 featured an Intel Pentium 6500Y and a high-end model. The base model features a new fanless Intel dual-core Amber Lake Y-Series chip that runs at 1.1-3.4 GHz. The base model Surface Go 3 with the Pentium Gold 6500Y scores 62% higher than the Surface Go 2 in the single core test and 47% higher than the Surface Go 2 in a multi-core test.

The high-end model features a quad-core Intel Core i3-10100Y that runs at 1.3-3.9GHz. What all this amounts to is a significant performance jump for the Surface Go 3. WinFuture also alleges that “Redmonders” or also known as Microsoft employees are testing an AMD-powered Surface Go 3 variant. Other rumors point to a Snapdragon 7c-powered Surface Go X making an appearance. We won’t have long to wait now that benchmarks are popping up online, that is a typical hallmark of an impending release.
