Microsoft might turn to Qualcomm, AMD for next-gen Surface

Surface notebook reportedly in the works

Microsoft’s Surface RT is just barely out, while the Pro is still not available, but rumours of next generation Surface products are already starting to trickle in.

According to a leak fresh out of Redmond, the company might looking to Qualcomm for its next-gen Surface RT, while AMD’s Temash quad-core APU could replace Intel’s Core i5 chips in the Surface Pro.

It doesn’t end there. The next generation RT is said to feature a smaller 8.9-inch form factor, while the Pro could grow to 11.6 inches, just to differentiate them a bit more. It sounds plausible, but there is talk of an even larger device in the works, a 14.6-inch Surface Book, a hybrid ultrabook with a proper keyboard and trackpad.

Needless to say, these early leaks should be taken with a grain of salt, although at least some of them sound plausible and frankly we would like to see AMD score a significant design win for Tamesh. It would spice things up a bit.
