    Lookout! The benchmarks are coming, the benchmarks are coming...

    If you run one or see one, post it here.

    The site is in German but some pictures are in English and numbers are numbers :)

    Having just run crystalmark myself, that is looking like roughly a 50% Read performance increase and a 35% increase in write. Take into account my drive is probably fragmented and this and that compared to a demo unit with nothing on it.

    Fragmentation on an SSD is inconsequential since we don't have to wait for it to spin. :)

    So roughly a 30% increase 3DMark/PCMark from i5SP3 to i5SP4, in line with what MSFT said at the event.

    2 questions:
    - We need to see the i7 benchmarks as MSFT was claiming 80% increase i7 to i7 at the release event.
    - Is anyone able to get this i5 or i7 to throttle after repeated runs...

    Im curious if core m will be weak ( considering the complaints for MacBook-Lenovo yoga owners) and if the I-5 can sustain speed without throttling. The storage speed bump up will be nice though for sure.

    I'm thinking this will be more of a case of Core-M done right ... but we shall see.

    I was at a Best Buy and they had one SP4, an i5 model. They had a spot marked off for a Surface Book but didn't have one yet.

    Getting a full set of devices under test right now might be a challenge.

    Here are early Geekbench results for the i5.

    It is interesting also to see the Geekbench results for the Surface Book.

    Surface Book i5 is comparable to the Surface Pro 4 i5.

    There is also a listing of Surface Book i7 which shows 3577 single-core and 7401 multi-core.

    The i7-6600U being about a 15% increase on the Geekbench vs. the i5. Should be similar for the Pro 4 i7.

    I found it interesting that the Geekbench scores for the i5 SP4 are higher than those for the i7 SP3.

    I ran my SP3 i7 on 3Dmark last week. The mark for the SP4 i5 is 50% better than mine for skydiver I got combine score for Skydiver 1.0 of 2642. with the main advantage to the SP4 being the physics score of the new graphics processor.

    I don't game on it so I'm not that bothered, but it does show a substantial increase in performance.

    Based on anandtech the sp4 looks to have cracking g performance and with very little throttling! Great news.

    Although very interesting that they opted to benchmark again at the iPhone and the iPad but not one comparison against Air performance.
