Microsoft's upcoming hardware event is right around the corner, slated for 10am Eastern Time on October 2 in New York. One of the products that the company is expected to launch is the Surface Pro 7, and today, alleged configurations of the tablet were leaked by WinFuture, or at least the ones that are coming to Europe.
Here's the full list:
If accurate, the Surface Pro 7 would herald the return of the Core i3 SKU. There wasn't one for the Pro 6, although there was for the Pro 5 (it was called Core m3 at the time, and has been rebranded). Earlier this week, a benchmark score leaked for a Surface Go using a Core m3-8100Y, so it's possible that both devices could come with similar chipsets at some point.
But while the Surface Pro 7 is expected to launch with Intel's 10th-generation CPUs, it's not clear which ones. Comet Lake is 14nm with UHD Graphics, while Ice Lake is 10nm with Iris Plus graphics. So that Core i3 could be a Core i3-1000G1, Core i3-1000G4, or Core i3-10110Y, presuming its still the Y-series. Naturally, the Core i5 and i7 variants should still be U-series.
Also missing is a model with a 1TB SSD, which is something that's been around for a few generations now. It's unclear if this is missing entirely, or if it's just not coming to European markets.
