If you look at current Surface devices, you can quickly come to the conclusion that there’s really only one gaming device missing (other than Xbox consoles). And Microsoft may be prepping a gaming-focused laptop right now.
The page the first game found some specification (via Wccftech) that paint a fairly accurate picture of the Surface mobile gaming PC. Of course, you should treat them with some caution, because this “Spec Sheet” cannot be confirmed at this time.
High-end gaming PC
If this information is correct, Microsoft and Surface gamers can look forward to a more than interesting device that is clearly at the higher end of technical possibilities. The device is said to have a 16-inch PixelSense Flow display with a specific resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, a 165Hz refresh rate, and finally support for Dolby Vision. Under the hood, gamers will be able to choose between an Intel Core i7-12700H (14 cores) or a Core i5-12500H (12 cores), both models from the current Alder Lake generation (it’s 12). Main memory is 16 or 32 gigabytes of LPDDR4x memory.
Microsoft is said to be installing a GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 8GB graphics card for the GPU in the i7 model and an RTX 3050 Ti 4GB graphics card for the device with a Core i5 CPU. The Surface Gaming Laptop is also said to have a removable SSD with 256GB, 512GB, 1TB and 2TB options.
In general, everything is reminiscent of a Surface Book with a gaming graphics card. And even if such a gaming computer makes more than sense, it should be warned: the source of the leak is rather dubious or does not provide any information about the origin of these specifications.
