A 3DMark entry for an apparent Microsoft Surface 7 Pro device has been spotted, with the benchmark record providing various details about the specifications of the upcoming 2-in-1 detachable. The unit was tested on the Sky Diver 1.0 benchmark, which listed the presence of a 10nm Ice Lake processor from Intel but only 16 GB RAM.

It appears that those hoping for a Microsoft Surface Pro tablet sporting more than 16 GB of RAM are destined to be foiled. Superstar data-miner Tum Apisak has managed to discover a recent record in 3DMark’s Sky Diver 1.0 test that shows the upcoming Surface Pro 7 bearing 16 GB RAM, which is only half of the 32 GB many Surface fans would have been dreaming about.

However, it’s not all bad news for potential purchasers considering putting their hands in their pockets to buy a Surface Pro 7. According to the 3DMark entry, this particular “Microsoft Corporation Surface Pro 7” is ready to do business with a 10nm Intel Core i7-1065G7 processor at hand. That’s four cores and eight threads of high-clock performance in an energy-efficient form, just what the doctor ordered when it comes to slimline convertibles that want to offer power without the heat.

With a mighty integrated graphics processing unit and 512 GB of storage also making up part of the package, it appears the Microsoft Surface Pro 7 powered by the Ice Lake i7-1065G7 is nothing to be sniffed at. It might come up short for some fans in terms of RAM, but the listed specifications point to a high-performance convertible that is likely to wow users as much as its Core i7 predecessor did. (buy Microsoft 2019 Surface Pro 6 now at Amazon)
