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.

From childhood on, the curiosity about the functioning of the latest technical achievements continued. Out of this thirst for knowledge followed studies in mathematics and computer science. Away from the world of test reports, I work as a research assistant and project manager in the field of IT security/cyber security for industry 4.0.

Born in the United States and raised in Germany I became acquainted with both languages from an early age and turned this into my profession later in life. Computers have always played an important role in my life, and my love for all things digital is a huge part of my daily routine. Virtual Reality has captured my imagination and interest in particular, and I cannot wait to see what the (near) future will bring.
