A new level of responsiveness in a thin, light design

The exclusive AMD Ryzen™ Microsoft Surface® Edition processor inside Surface Laptop 3 15” is designed to give you outstanding responsiveness with 15% more graphics performance (GPU) and 10% more processor performance when compared to other AMD mobile processors – all in an ultra-slim 15” laptop.2

The AMD Ryzen™ 7 Microsoft Surface® Edition processor is the fastest 15” in its class² — thin, light and 3.40 lbs. The AMD Ryzen™ 5 Microsoft Surface® Edition processor is over two times faster than Surface Laptop 2.

Discover the stunning everyday 15” laptop that gives you the perfect balance of performance, portability and long battery life in a slim form factor.

An AMD Ryzen processor.

Developed in partnership with AMD

When looking for the right processor for Surface Laptop 3 15”, we wanted the best graphics performance in a single processor for responsive multitasking across tabs and apps like Adobe Lightroom,* or playing casual games during downtime like Rocket League* and League of Legends.* To keep the device under 3.40 lbs and maintain long battery life,1 the processor had to be under 15W.

 

One processor stood out — the AMD Ryzen™ Mobile Processor, a design choice that builds on the established multi-year partnership between Microsoft and AMD. The result: Surface Laptop 3 15” is a category first — delivering industry-leading, integrated graphics performance in an ultra-slim laptop that’s perfect for every day.
