The Core i5-1035G1 is a quad-core Ice Lake-U processor that has a 15 W default TDP. The Hyper-Threaded and 10 nm chip has a 1.0 GHz base clock, but it can temporarily reach 3.6 GHz and 25 W using Intel Turbo Boost.
The timing of a second OEMQN Product Name EV1 sighting in as many weeks suggests that we could be close to the arrival of retail units. As we deduced last week, only the release of the Surface Book 3 coincides with these listings, as new generations of the Surface Pro and Surface Laptop are likely several months off yet.
This is not the same OEMQN Product Name EV1 SKU that we have seen previously, either. In short, it seems that this 3DMark listing is for a lower-end SKU. We are basing this on that it has less RAM and storage than the one that appeared on UserBenchmark last week. These could be SKUs of an entirely new product line, but we are struggling to think of a new way in which Microsoft could currently take the Surface lineup. A spring hardware event still seems likely though, so hopefully we do not have too long to wait before Microsoft showcases what these Core i5-1035G1 machines are.
