The Surface 8 Pro, on the other hand, is powered by the Core i7-1185G7 and its benchmark scores are also interesting. It managed to post a score of 1,343 and 4,970 in single and multi-core tests, respectively. The previous generation of the Surface Pro devices was powered by Intel’s Ice Lake SKUs, and the new Surface Pro 8 models will have the new Tiger Lake CPUs to boot. Though there are no other major significant changes that Microsoft has offered with the Surface Pro 8 and the updated CPU will only provide a bare minimum performance boost.
