Microsoft could be preparing to launch a new Surface device
(Surface Book 3) powered by Intel’s Core i7-1065G7 and NVIDIA
Max-Q GPU, according to a new benchmark spotted on 3DMark.

Last year,
Microsoft refreshed its Surface Pro lineup and also
unveiled Surface Neo/Duo, but it’ll be a whole three year since
it released the Surface Book 2 in October 2017. It’s high time
that Microsoft announced a new Surface Book product, and it
looks a new device is on its way.

A 3DMark listing seems
to show a Surface Book ‘OEMGC EV2 OEMGC Product Name EV2’ –
running on a 10th generation Intel Core i7-1065G7 processor.

Microsoft has previously used a similar naming convention for
Surface Laptop, Surface Pro, and Surface Go on Geekbench and
3DMark, hence this could be a new Surface product from the
Redmond firm.

The listing revealed that Surface Book 3 (possibly the 15-inch
variant) will use Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q GPU. This
GPU comes with a Max-Q Design and it is based on  Turing
architecture for thin and light laptops, and it offers better
cooling technology.

Like the first and second-generation, Surface Book 3 includes
both a dedicated GPU (dGPU) and a low-powered Intel mobile
processor.

It’s also worth noting that Surface Book 3 could still come
with other processors, but the GPU is likely to remain NVIDIA
Max-Q.

As a Twitter user noted,
Surface Book 3 with Intel Tiger Lake could be also in works.

Microsoft is likely to talk about the Surface Book 3, Surface
Neo and Surface Duo at an event later this year.
