Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 15 Ryzen 5 3580U

One of Microsoft's biggest successes is undoubtedly the Surface series. They easily carried Microsoft in terms of hardware after several trials with mobile phones before. The reason why Surface devices became a success is because Microsoft started to understand its users' needs and acted accordingly. Surface devices provide a smooth mobile Windows experience, are lightweight and from some ways well optimized for Windows. Now, our current device uses the AMD Ryzen 5 3580U. Naming can sound a bit different, because it is not a regular Ryzen chip. Instead it is something specially produced for the Surface Laptop 3. Difference? It is hidden in the GPU. While regular Ryzen chips come with the Vega 8 GPU, this model comes with the Vega 9. There are other variations with Intel's latest 10th generation processors of course, but the AMD partnership is a nice variety. The difference between Intel and AMD models is going to be about base speeds. But since the AMD chips are special production, benchmarks will tell us a better story. There is also a 13.5 inch model available for purchase. Is the Surface Laptop going to be a good investment? Yes and no. Yes, well because it is Microsoft, so your Windows experience will be a good one. No, because there are tons of other laptops with Windows installed and they also provide good experience. Especially considering the price tag of the top versions, which is around and above 2,000 USD, I think you can easily get a Asus Zenbook Pro Duo 14 which is also innovative with its dual screen and also has very similar specs and some versions also have better GPUs than the Surface 3. But what makes the Surface Laptop 3 different is its premium feeling. It is completely made of aluminium. Basically, it is a way of saying, "I am different". What Apple is doing with the MacBook line, Microsoft is kind of trying to achieve with its Surface Laptop line. Is it a success? Both yes and no. Yes, because they are good laptops. No, because unlike Apple products, Windows devices lose value too fast. If I were to invest 2,000 USD into a laptop, I would have to come up with my priorities. Is it mobility? Is it performance? Is it premium feeling? I am saying this, because if it is pure performance, there are better options with better CPUs. The Surface Laptop 3 comes with low voltage CPUs, so they are kind of capped in terms of performance whereas there are models from MSI, Asus and Dell with 45 Watt CPUs. Then mobility. There are even models with around 1.5 kg weight that provides better performance than the Surface 3. But they might be a bit more expensive. What would I pick? Well, I am in between. My heart says I should go for the Asus Zenbook Pro Duo 14 series. Not because it basically has the same config as Surface Laptop 3 models, it also has a differentiation, which is the second screen. Other than that, it is completely up to your taste in laptops. The Surface Laptop 3 is a premium device and will fulfill your expectations. Hands-on article by Ümit Yılmaz Güneş

The 15-inch Surface Laptop 3 has some of the best battery life we’ve experienced in a 15-inch laptop, which should be lauded. But, this laptop falls well short on both the power and versatility that most would expect from a 15-inch device, making it a disappointing followup for anyone who was hoping for more.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 (15) review – an excellent 3:2 display, custom AMD processors and extremely tight form factor
Source: Laptop Media English
So guys, the Surface Laptop 3 (15) is exactly what Microsoft states it is – a laptop that will guide you with your Office 365 work, word processing, countless hours of Web browsing, and in our view, photo and light video editing. If you are genuinely unpretentious, you have no problem buying a separate dongle and money is not a problem for you, go for it, this device has some quality. Just remember the drill – keep the Power Mode setting down at “Better Battery Mode” and you shouldn’t have any problems.

75% Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 review: A picture of elegance
Source: Hardware Zone English
Overall, this is a decent 15-inch laptop if you really need a bigger screen and are a fan of Surface hardware, but I would otherwise look for a laptop that has Thunderbolt 3 support and more USB ports, or even simply the smaller 13.5-inch Surface Laptop 3 with the Intel chip. And if we are talking about smaller 13- and 14-inch notebooks, then it's impossible not to consider also ASUS' ZenBook 14 UX434 and Acer's Swift 5. These notebooks have 10th generation Intel processors, discrete graphics from NVIDIA, and what's more, costs around the same or even less.

Source: It Pro English
The Surface Laptop 3 15in is often fantastic; it’s finely crafted and comfortable to use, and that screen is one of the best in its class. However, that also makes it hurt harder when it settles for less in the performance and connectivity departments. On that note, much of what is good about the Surface Laptop 3 15in can be had in the 13.5in version for less money - and if it’s power you’re after, the XPS 15 remains a good choice even years after launch. That leaves the 15in model as a laptop that dabbles in greatness, but ultimately doesn’t make for a very compelling purchase.

78% Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 15-inch review: A bigger Surface with business appeal
Source: CNet English
Though we loved the 13-inch Surface Laptop when it first shipped two years ago, a lot has changed for thin and light premium laptops since then. Now the line just doesn't stand out the way it once did, even the new 15-inch model. At first, it isn't clear who the 15-inch Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 is for: Compared to the rest of its many competitors, it's not particularly light, or fast or feature-packed. It's not inexpensive or full of cutting-edge tech and it doesn't have an especially long battery life. But it's reasonably portable, sufficiently fast, looks pleasantly sleek, is partly upgradeable, and even backward-compatible with previous power supplies sold by Microsoft. So it probably does make sense for one class of laptop buyers: enterprise.

The Surface Laptop 3 is a super-sized version of Microsoft’s ultraportable, with a gorgeous 15-inch screen and powerful AMD hardware. It’s impressive for a 3.4-pound machine, though it lags behind slightly heavier 15-inch notebooks when it comes to overall power and usability, due to its lack of ports and its thin profile.

Somewhat surprisingly, Microsoft didn’t load up the Surface Laptop 3 with too much extraneous crapware, although worthless apps like Farm Heroes Saga make an appearance. Honestly, we wish Microsoft did more with the Surface app that it bundled with Surface devices. While it provides a nice summary of the system specs and provides basic configuration options for the Surface Pen (sold separately), it would be welcome to see something a bit more comprehensive.

I think the Surface Laptop 3’s sleek aesthetic continues to be worth indulging, and the performance, though not earth-shattering, helps set the Laptop’s bar higher. Those who are more inclined towards brutalist efficiency should also consider looking at recent introductions like the Acer Swift 3—there’s a lot of functionality there for under $1,000, even if you won’t like the display and keyboard as much. Lenovo’s ThinkBook is also worth considering.

Overall, the Surface Laptop 3 15 is a great laptop. It keeps all of the design cues of the smaller generation and just makes it a bit bigger, retaining the same thin & light design and keeping it easy to travel with. Microsoft has forged a solid partnership with AMD, and the Ryzen APU that's at the heart of this laptop brings with it great GPU performance and good CPU performance, even though it is at the cost of overall battery life. Plus, if you have been eyeing up the previous generation Surface Laptop 2 and were held up due to the USB situation – or uncertainty about the Alcantara keyboard deck – the new generation does offer fixes there, which makes the Surface Laptop 3 a much more palatable device.

I really like the Surface Laptop 3. I just don't love it as much as I'd hoped I would. With an attractive, lightweight chassis and a gorgeous 15-inch display, the Surface Laptop 3 successfully bridges the gap between ultraportable laptops and those with large screens. Unfortunately, the laptop falls frustratingly short in other ways: Its performance and battery life are unimpressive, there are very few ports, and upgrading storage and RAM increases the price exponentially.

Gizmodo is the most positively-inclined towards the new AMD laptop, writing: “If you value portability and don’t need half a dozen CPU cores and a big discrete GPU, the Surface Laptop 3 is a rarity that hits a perfect balance I didn’t know I needed until I had it in my lap. AMD (and Microsoft) have produced a GPU and CPU seemingly as good as Intel’s very best. It’s absolute proof that AMD can and should start appearing in more laptops, especially the big flashy ones.”

AMD's Ryzen debut in a flagship machine cannot be overstated, particularly with specially designed silicon in tandem with Microsoft's hardware team.

80% Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 13in review: Almost the perfect laptop
Source: It Pro English
Despite a handful of shortcomings, the Surface Laptop 2 was one of our favourite devices of last year, thanks to a sleek design and capable performance. The third entry in the series has addressed the main niggles that we had, and aside from lacklustre performance in the Core i5 model, there’s really not much at all to complain about. As far as do-it-all business laptops go, the Surface Laptop 3 is one of the better examples we’ve seen. Portable, well-built and decently powerful at the top end, the Surface Laptop has surpassed the MacBook Air and is now on track to challenge the MacBook Pro.

The Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 seems painfully plain on paper. There's no second screen, no graphics card, no hybrid hinge, and even no fingerprint scanner. But Microsoft has put so much attention to detail into every part that matters, this ends up one of the best Windows laptops at any price.

75% Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 13.5-inch review: have a normal one
Source: The Verge English
Finally, as this is a Surface device, numerous weird bugs have come and gone throughout my testing period. I’ve already mentioned the display auto brightness bug, but I’ve also seen aggressive battery drain, fans ramping to 100 percent while charging, and the trackpad randomly stop scrolling in apps. Most of these bugs go away after fully shutting down the laptop and restarting it, but they are all frustrating things to experience in the first week of using a brand-new laptop. Microsoft typically does update its Surface devices with bug fixes and patches on a regular basis, so hopefully things will have settled down a few months from now, but right now, the Laptop 3’s experience can be hit-or-miss.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 initial review: More power and a new 15-inch version, too
Source: Pocket Lint English
Overall, this is an expected upgrade but one Surface Laptop fans will appreciate. One of the best Windows 10 alternatives to the MacBook Air and Pro 13, though the likes of the Dell XPS 13 also do a good job at filling that spot. The Surface Laptop 3 15 is a proper MacBook Pro rival and a top addition to the Surface family; a few more ports and an SD card reader would have been ideal though, mind you, not in keeping with the clean aesthetic Microsft is going for.

Surface Laptop 3 15-inch review
Source: Bill Bennett English
That impression didn’t go away. Yet there is also the dawning realisation that the big screen is all you get with the 15-inch Ryzen 5 Surface Laptop 3. It might help to think of it as a physically pumped-up version of a smaller computer with a bigger screen. That makes it good for personal productivity, not so good for games or media production.

Surface Laptop 3 15-inch review: A great laptop, but get the Intel model
Source: Neowin English
Despite its flaws, I really do like the Surface Laptop 3 15. I feel like the display is the perfect size. As I said earlier, I've never cared much for 3:2 displays, because they tend to not be as wide as 16:9 screens, and I need apps to run side-by-side. But this screen is the width of a traditional 14-inch laptop, which makes it fine; it's just taller, giving me extra real estate.

On the other hand, the Surface Pro 7 at the same price is a speedy little 2-in-1 convertible, especially if you can live with 128 GB of storage. At $899 the Core i5 with 8 GB of memory and 128 GB of storage is extremely reasonable. The upcharge for more storage is more palatable when the performance is excellent like it is here. We really liked the Surface Pro 7's mix of looks, great display, light weight, and nice performance, so we're happy to give it our Recommended award.

The Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 Showdown: AMD's Ryzen Picasso vs. Intel's Ice Lake
Source: AnandTech English
Meanwhile for Intel, Ice Lake has been years in the making, and, after a long delay, it is finally here. After digging into the platform in-depth, it’s clear that Ice Lake is an incredibly strong offering from Intel. The CPU performance gains are significant, particularly because they were made in the face of a CPU frequency deficit. But the biggest gains were on the GPU side, where Intel’s Gen 11 GT2 in its full 64 Execution Unit configuration is likely the biggest single increase in GPU performance since they started integrating GPUs. It pulls very close to AMD’s Vega, closing the gap in performance to almost zero.

Microsoft Surface 3 Laptop Battle – AMD Ryzen 7 or Intel Core i7?
Source: Legit Reviews English
If you want the best 15-inch Surface Laptop 3, you’ll need to look for the business model, and buy that one. You won’t get fancy retail packaging, but you’ll end up with an Intel ‘Ice Lake’ powered system with better overall performance and longer battery life than the rival AMD powered machine. You’ll also get Windows 10 Pro and Wi-Fi 6 to boot. You are looking at about a $100 price premium for the Intel powered Surface Laptop 3, but depending on the configuration it might actually be less expensive as it was in our case. You can find the Surface Laptop 3 for business with pricing starting at $1,099 shipped for the 13.5-inch model or $1,299 for the 15-inch model. The Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 for Business that we tested today runs $1,599 shipped as it has the double the RAM and SSD size over the base model and may be worth the extra cash as 16GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD seems a must on premium devices as we enter 2020.

The Surface Laptop 3 15 is a 15-inch premium laptop you can't ignore; it's remarkably built and an attractive bit of kit. The AMD Ryzen processor options tackle everyday tasks with ease, but this isn't a device for high-end design work or gaming, while the battery performance is a major let down.

Source: PC World English
The disparity in value is what I can’t help landing on with the Ryzen 7 version of the Surface Laptop 3. It’s significantly more expensive than the Ryzen 5 model, yet battery life drops under 8 hours. Performance improves somewhat. If you’re deciding upon which Surface Laptop 3 to buy, we’d suggest either the Surface Laptop 3 (Ryzen 5) model instead, or else another laptop suggested above.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 15-inch (Ryzen 7) review: The price tag climbs, but battery life drops
Source: Good Gear Guide English
Our thesis that the Intel-powered Surface Laptop 3 for Business might be a better bet still holds true—although the Ryzen 7’s performance makes that a much more challenging statement to defend. At just $100 more, the Surface Laptop 3 for Business offers a similarly configured model as our test unit, with a Core i7-1065G7 inside it as well as improved wireless capabilities. That’s the same Core i7-1065G7/16GB/256GB configuration as in the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 7390, which we’ve tested.

Source: CNet English
With some more juice, the Surface Laptop 3 would be hard to beat in this ultracompetitive category. As it is, though, the strong trackpad/keyboard combo, improved performance and snazzy (though little changed) design make the Laptop 3 worth the price tag.

The Surface Laptop 3 hits all the notes you’d want to hit without radically deviating from what have made previous Surface Laptops work. If you’re uninterested in the tablet form-factor offered by the Surface Pro 7 and want to get your hands on a Windows-based clamshell that’ll excel at the ordinary, this remains a competitive option that’s easy to recommend to all but the most demanding power users. For them, the Surface Book is the place to go.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 15, i7-1065G7

I don’t know if some of you remember the days the Macbook Air was released. It was back in around 2008. Then after just two years emerged the Chromebooks. Then after another two years, there were Surface laptops. In the beginning, again, all these shiny gadgets were highly praised. There was a new area to compete for and everyone wanted a piece out of it. Then people realized they are paying premiums for not so good performance and for a long while there was silence. The Macbook Airs were a good fit for Business and so were the Microsoft Surface laptops. Chromebooks are a different story. Now, we have the next iteration of Surface Laptops; this time two different variations with different CPUs. One with Intel and the other with AMD. In all the press releases, Microsoft mentioned a lot about their models with AMD. I don’t know what is the real reason behind this. But anyways. I am going to be talking about the Intel models. With just an extra of 100$, you will get an Intel Icelake CPU, Wifi 6 and Windows Pro OS. Whereas with AMD, you get Wifi 5 and Windows Home. Oh one more, AMD models use DDR4, while Intel models use LPDDR4. In total, this does not affect overall performance that much. But in general, we can say Intel models last around one hour longer. Which is to me a nice to have. Most of the reviews online mention that the new models are not groundbreaking. Yes, we have a sleek design, yes it is somewhat light. Yes, it has a battery life of okay. But other than that, there is nothing much to talk about. The thing that I am sure about is, it is expensive. With a price tag close to 1400$ for starters, it is costly. But Microsoft has a target group: Enterprise. Think about it, you provide a sleek / light device that is meant to be used for office operations. Who else can resist that? My overall impression is, yes it is a nice device. Does it provide much? I am not so sure. Is there competition? Of course. The Lenovo Yoga series or Asus Zenbook 13 / 14 series are great competitors. Also don't forget Macs. The question are, "For which purpose do you want to buy and how much budget do you have?". For instance, for me weight matters a lot. The Surface 3 is around 1.5 kg. The Asus Zenbook series can go down to 900 grams. Pricing? Still very similar. Hardware, also similar. For my personal preferences, I would take a good look at other options in hand, before making such a purchase. As we all know, the hardware market is getting less and less innovative these days and it is becoming more and more about looks and ergonomics. When we consider performance will always be pretty close and the price as well, it is up to personal preferences and minor details about performance and connectivity. But the key is, identifying your needs and then deciding on the fits. Hands-on article by Ümit Yılmaz Güneş

Surface Laptop 3 Review: Can Ice Lake Freeze Out a Core i7-7700HQ From 2016?
Source: Extreme Tech English
The Surface Laptop 3 isn’t a gaming laptop, but it can play older titles and modern games with more modest GPU requirements. It won’t blow your socks off, but it’s a much faster solution than any previous GPU Intel has ever shipped.

The Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 Showdown: AMD's Ryzen Picasso vs. Intel's Ice Lake
Source: AnandTech English
Meanwhile for Intel, Ice Lake has been years in the making, and, after a long delay, it is finally here. After digging into the platform in-depth, it’s clear that Ice Lake is an incredibly strong offering from Intel. The CPU performance gains are significant, particularly because they were made in the face of a CPU frequency deficit. But the biggest gains were on the GPU side, where Intel’s Gen 11 GT2 in its full 64 Execution Unit configuration is likely the biggest single increase in GPU performance since they started integrating GPUs. It pulls very close to AMD’s Vega, closing the gap in performance to almost zero.

Source: PC World English
The Surface Laptop 3 with Intel’s 10th-gen Core i7 chip achieves roughly 10 hours of battery life. This is more than enough to get you through your workday, and siginificantly longer than what was achieved by the 15-inch Surface Laptop 3 with AMD’s Ryzen 5 CPU, or the 15-inch Surface Laptop 3 with Ryzen 7. Other than the CPU and storage variations, the Surface Laptop 3 units we’ve tested are largely identical.

78% Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 15-inch review: A bigger Surface with business appeal
Source: CNet English
Though we loved the 13-inch Surface Laptop when it first shipped two years ago, a lot has changed for thin and light premium laptops since then. Now the line just doesn't stand out the way it once did, even the new 15-inch model. At first, it isn't clear who the 15-inch Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 is for: Compared to the rest of its many competitors, it's not particularly light, or fast or feature-packed. It's not inexpensive or full of cutting-edge tech and it doesn't have an especially long battery life. But it's reasonably portable, sufficiently fast, looks pleasantly sleek, is partly upgradeable, and even backward-compatible with previous power supplies sold by Microsoft. So it probably does make sense for one class of laptop buyers: enterprise.

The Surface Laptop 3 15 is a 15-inch premium laptop you can't ignore; it's remarkably built and an attractive bit of kit. The AMD Ryzen processor options tackle everyday tasks with ease, but this isn't a device for high-end design work or gaming, while the battery performance is a major let down.

This time we look at the 13.5” which has the most powerful graphics available in a 13” convertible Windows tablet-laptop combo. The casing and design are unchanged, but the internals are updated to Intel 10th gen Ice Lake quad core CPUs and NVIDIA GTX 1650 Mx-Q on the 13.5” and GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q on the 15”. The Book 3 models now come with higher watt chargers, Intel WiFi 6 and the same detachable “clipboard” tablets with Surface Pen support (pen not included).

However, if you are not set on a detachable notebook, it would be foolish not to at least check out convertible notebooks like the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 and HP Spectre x360. Granted, their tablet modes are compromised, but their built-in keyboards offer a better typing experience. If you type a lot, this is something to bear in mind. Moreover, the current crop of convertible notebooks is much more comfortable to be used as tablets, because they have never been this compact or light.

If you want the best 15-inch Surface Laptop 3, you’ll need to look for the business model, and buy that one. You won’t get fancy retail packaging, but you’ll end up with an Intel ‘Ice Lake’ powered system with better overall performance and longer battery life than the rival AMD powered machine. You’ll also get Windows 10 Pro and Wi-Fi 6 to boot. You are looking at about a $100 price premium for the Intel powered Surface Laptop 3, but depending on the configuration it might actually be less expensive as it was in our case. You can find the Surface Laptop 3 for business with pricing starting at $1,099 shipped for the 13.5-inch model or $1,299 for the 15-inch model. The Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 for Business that we tested today runs $1,599 shipped as it has the double the RAM and SSD size over the base model and may be worth the extra cash as 16GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD seems a must on premium devices as we enter 2020.

Additionally, it has decent maximum brightness (400+ nits), adequate default settings and comfortable backlight in terms of PWM. Although all of that speaks well of the panel, there is something that represents it even better – the color accuracy. By default, the display is pretty color accurate, however, when you apply our Gaming and Web design profile, the Average dE drops to just 0.8, which makes it one of the most color-accurate displays we’ve had in our office.

Comment

Microsoft:

Microsoft smartphones and tablets have been tested since 2012. There are many reviews with average ratings. The reader's interest is quite given, but the market share is not big enough for the Top 5 smartphone manufacturers (as of 2016).


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

AMD Vega 9: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 9 CUs (= 576 shaders) and a clock of up to 1300 MHz.

Intel Iris Plus Graphics G7 (Ice Lake 64 EU): Integrated graphics card in Intel Ice-Lake G7 SoCs based on the new Gen. 11 architecture with 64 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model ranging from 300 MHz base to 1050 - 1100 MHz boost. The Ice-Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm process at Intel produced.

AMD Vega 11: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with all 11 CUs (=704 shaders) and a clock of up to 1240 MHz.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


AMD Picasso (Ryzen 3000 APU):

R5 3580U: Mobile Quad-Core APU using Zen+ cores clocked at 2.2 to 3.8 GHz. Compared to the similar Ryzen 5 3500U, the 3580U includes a faster GPU with 9 instead of 8 CUs.

R7 3780U: Mobile Quad-Core APU using Zen+ cores clocked at 2.3 to 4 GHz and a Vega 11 graphics card with 11 CUs clocked at up to 1400 MHz.

Intel Ice Lake:

i7-1065G7: Ice Lake based low power quad-core processor for thin and light laptops. The four cores clock between 1.3 - 3.9 GHz and should offer 18% more IPC (instructions per clock) than the previous generations (and therefore partly close the clock speed gap). Produced in 10nm at Intel.

i5-1035G7: Ice-Lake based low power quad core processor for thin and light laptops. Integrated four Sunnycove cores clocked at 1.2 - 3.7 GHz that support Hyperthreading (8 threads). Furthermore, the SoC integrates a relatively fast Iris Plus G7 graphics card  and Wifi 6 / Thunderbolt partly integrated. The chip is manufactured in the modern 10nm process at Intel.

13.50:

This display size represents a treshold between the small sizes of subnotebooks and ultrabooks and the standard-sizes of office- and multimedia laptops on the other hand. Laptops with that size are somewhat rare, nowadays.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.288 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

1.54 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.


79.52%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
