Fully-loaded Microsoft Surface Pro 7 with i7 in Review: A Premium Worth its Price

Microsoft Surface Pro 7: Evergreen without real innovations
Microsoft Surface Pro 7: Evergreen without real innovations
Following our extensive Core i5-equipped Microsoft Surface Pro 7 review we also took a closer look a the i7 SKU with more RAM. Users can expect more than just improved CPU performance. Find out in our review what other differences we found between the two convertibles.

Even though our resume after our last review of Microsoft’s Surface Pro 7 was that it does not entail any significant innovations compared to its predecessor, we did at the same time have to acknowledge that Microsoft continues to make a high-quality convertible.

Which is why we decided to take a look at what other performance options are available. While the faster SKUs come equipped with an Intel Ice Lake i7 processor and 16 GB of RAM Microsoft had to sacrifice the passive cooling of the i3 and i5 models in return. Truth be told this did not really bother us as the included fan is quiet, and the case remained even cooler than on the more affordable models.

Overall performance was improved by around 20 %, which remained unnoticeable in everyday use. A significant improvement was made in regards to GPU performance, which became particularly obvious when gaming.

Further details and benchmarks can be found in our Intel Core i7-1065G7-equipped Surface Pro 7 review.
